Richard Sherman buys Seattle-area home from Jamal Crawford

It’s been a big year for Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman. 

Richard Sherman paid $2.3 million for this Maple Valley, Wash., home southeast of Seattle.

First, he helped lead his team to its first-ever Super Bowl victory — a crushing 43-8 win over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII. On June 6, it was announced he would be featured on the cover of Madden NFL 15, a popular video game series. And most recently, he went home shopping and landed himself a nice deal.

The famously outspoken All-Pro defender has bought a $2.3 million mansion in the Seattle area from Jamal Crawford, a Seattle native and star guard for the Los Angeles Clippers. The sale was first reported in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and the sale is recorded in property records.

Crawford lost $1 million on the four-bedroom, 6.25-bath home in Maple Valley, Washington. He bought it in April 2006 for $3.231 million.

Maple Valley is about 45 minutes from Seattle and convenient to the Seahawks practice field in Renton.

After an extension deal announced last month, Sherman is the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL, with a four-year, $56 million contract.

The private, gated Mediterranean mansion has a curved staircase, “Tuscan columns,” and two stone fireplaces. A red game room has a pool table and wet bar, and three bedrooms have private decks. There’s also an indoor swimming pool and a basketball court.
