Richard Sherman has made a habit of burying old grudges later in his career, starting two years ago when he joined the San Francisco 49ers as a free agent after spending seven seasons with their NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks

On Saturday, Sherman got his first chance to make amends with new Niners teammate Trent Williams when video of the two exchanging barbs following a 2013 playoff game against the Washington Redskins

Williams and Sherman likely settled their differences from that incident long ago. The two appeared at a Nike event in June 2015, with Williams tweeting that Sherman is a "great dude" before noting: "No people we're not beefing lol."

San Francisco acquired Williams from the Washington Redskins on Saturday. The move provides the 49ers with insurance amid ESPN's Adam Schefter reporting Joe Staley is expected to retire because of health reasons. 

If Sherman and Williams are playing at the top of their game in 2020, the 49ers will have a great chance to get back to the Super Bowl for the second straight season.
