Richard Sherman and Trent Williams are now teammates on the San Francisco 49ers, but the two of them have clashed in the past as rivals.

After the 49ers stunned the NFL world making a trade with Washington to acquire the seven-time Pro Bowl left tackle, Barstool Sports reminded everyone that Williams once threw a haymaker at Sherman after a game between Washington and Seattle.

Funny enough, 49ers owner Jed York saw this and responded. He hinted that it was weird having Sherman join the 49ers after all the years he spent being one of the team’s chief rivals as a member of the Seahawks but noted that Williams “will love” Sherman as a teammate.

Then, Sherman got in on the social media action with a funny retort about how he needs a rematch.

Everyone’s feeling pretty good right now in Santa Clara after landing two absolute studs in the draft and then bringing Williams in to take the place of presumed retiree, Joe Staley.
