"That was a great time," Sherman told CNN. "Meeting Barack, and getting a chance to chat it up." The defensive back laughed heartily when teased about his first name basis the President.

"It was fun, man. But you know I had to talk to secret service to make sure I wouldn't get in trouble, because they told me to raise my voice," said Sherman.

The NFL star he was really conflicted, because his mother told him you don't yell at the first lady.

Watch "Unguarded with Rachel Nichols" Friday night at 10:30 p.m. ET for more of this interview with Richard Sherman.
