The National Football League Players Association, the union that represents NFL players, said in a statement it is monitoring the situation.

“We were notified last night of an arrest of one of our player leaders for an alleged domestic violence incident and activated our domestic violence crisis protocol to protect and support all involved,” the statement said.

Sherman became a sporting legend in Seattle with the Seahawks for seven seasons. The cornerback was a star in their lead-up to a Super Bowl win in 2014, making a game-saving move to avert a pass in the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers.

He left the Seahawks after the 2017 season and then played three seasons with San Francisco.

The 33-year-old is currently a free agent.
