A year ago, the average NFL fan had no idea who Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was. But today, thanks to Seattle's success last season and Sherman's on and off the field beefs with other NFL players, Sherman has turned himself into a household name. So for their July 29 issue, Sports Illustrated put Sherman on the cover along with the cover line, "YOU HAPPY, BRO?"

Inside the mag, Sherman discusses his now-infamous beefs, his suspension for allegedly taking Adderall, his meteoric rise in the NFL, and the "act" that he's used to get his name out there into the world (Spoiler alert: It's not really an act). Check for the new issue of SI to hit stands soon. In the meantime, you can read more about Sherman's cover story over here.

Happy, bro?
