Sherman stated to his teammates that the lockout “is going to happen so it’s not like guys are guessing on that one,” according to USA Today. “Honestly I don’t care and I don’t think the guys in this locker room care whether this thing’s going to be around in 20 years because none of us are going to be playing,” Winston said according to Sports Illustrated.
