JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) - If people were looking for Richard Sherman to get the week-long hype for the Super Bowl started with another rant, the Seattle Seahawks cornerback disappointed them.

With about a dozen camera crews and 50 reporters surrounding him at a table, Sherman smiled broadly, winked when a reporter asked him about his rant at Michael Crabtree after last week's conference game, and simply played it close to the vest in discussing next Sunday's Super Bowl against the Denver Broncos.

There were no harsh words Sunday night. He talked about his respect for the Broncos' offense, his friendship with Denver receiver Demaryius Thomas, and the fact that the blowup with Crabtree led to a good discussion about race relations.

There were neither guarantees nor boasts. Just honest talk.
