Canadian DB Teague Sherman charged with sexual assault

Ottawa police have confirmed former Redblacks defensive back Teague Sherman has been charged with two counts of sexual assault.

Police say Sherman was charged last week, but did not provide further details because the matter is before the courts.

Sherman didn’t play in Ottawa’s game against Calgary on Thursday and was released by the Redblacks on Saturday .

In a statement, the Redblacks said they are “aware of the sexual assault charges filed against Teague Sherman and the player has been released. We take any allegation of violence against women very seriously and the Redblacks will have no further comment on Mr. Sherman’s case since he is no longer on the team and his case is now in judicial process.”

The 30-year-old Edmonton native played for the Winnipeg Blue Bombers from 2013-16 before signing with the Redblacks last season. He played three games with the Redblacks this season.

The allegations have not been tested in court.

A statement issued by the CFL on Wednesday stated that league “has and abides by a policy on violence against women and condemns violence against women in all its forms,” and that it will not register a contract for Sherman should any team attempt to sign him.

According to SportsNet’s Arash Madani, CFL teams were told to steer clear of Sherman.

  1. Hope they took his passport and notified ICE.

    • He’s Canadian and may not have a passport.

      • Thank you. This website has become overridden with numbskulls. I used to enjoy the debate over FOOTBALL. Now it’s a gossip site.

  2. Would be interesting to know which team was hot to sign him.

    Was BC looking for another repeat of the Euc Cummings debacle?

    Was Regina looking for another repeat of the Greg Hardy embarrassment?

    Even without the sex charges, Sherman is not a pro level DB. He’s useful as a tackling dummy in practice, but other than that he’s trash.

      Literally every CFL team has rostered a player with a criminal record or alleged criminal history.

      I’d be shocked if you weren’t a panty sniffing weirdo yourself. We all know you’re a first class D-bag, so the leap to creepy perv isn’t very far.

      • So why do you attack another poster and you don’t mention a player that has attacked “multiple women”

      • The poster is a D-bag? not Sherman who was arrested and charged for assaulting 2 women?
        You are okay with that? you approve of players assaulting women but not okay with posters attacking these players?

      • Hey Jeff Carcia’s Agent – wtf?
        Area51 is a D-bag and a weirdo but NOT Teague Sherman???
        Do you have any evidence about Area51?
        Seems the police have enough evidence against Sherman to charge him.
        Why the sympathy for Sherman and CFL players? why are you defending them?

    • Actually, the CFL front office sending out a “keep far away from this guy” memo is a step forward for them; probably a hard lesson learned from the other incidents you mentioned.

    • Area51 : Maybe Calgary was looking .Don’t be so quick to point to B.C. and SK

    The best friend of Stampeding.
    Two peas in a pod

  4. Arash Madani? Seriously? The same “reporter” who asked Marcus Stroman a ridiculous question that made Stroman freak out a few days ago? Why is Madani back on 3Downnation? He despises the CFL and is a bigger goof than dumbass 51, which is saying something.

  5. Rider4life // July 18, 2018 at 3:55 pm //

    Hey area 51 when ditching other teams get to know the teams name. Its Saskatchewan not Regina . We have a Regina Rams team. But I guess in your case it’s to hard to spell Saskatchewan lol. As it says to stay away from this guy to all CFL teams maybe it was Edmonton as our defense in SASKATCHEWAN is second to none one of the top 3 teams. We wouldn’t need this guy.

    • True Green // July 18, 2018 at 6:25 pm //

      A51 never refers to Saskatchewan as he knows it bothers the majority of Riders fans from the province, not the city of Regina. No offence to the city of Regina, but they are only a portion of the fan base.

    Does anyone mind if I take a cyber dump right on this comment section. I figure nobody will notice, since everyone on this forum has excrement coming out of their mouth.

  7. Cleveland Steamer // July 18, 2018 at 4:37 pm //

    PS…the team in question that was interested in Sherman was Winnipeg, FYI.

  8. Evil Empire // July 18, 2018 at 4:38 pm //

    @Rider4life.

    STFU you inbred piece of trash. You have no reason to drag the Eskimo name through the mud. And I already saw on the Rider forum ppl talking about interest in this guy. Why ? Because your garbage team has a WR playing on the corner.

    Wait til your club starts playing real football teams. Then we’ll see how vaunted your defence is.

    This is just another reason I despise that franchise, and it’s fans. The Edm envy is disgusting. You had no reason whatsoever to mention the Eskimos, but of course you did it, anyway.

    • True Green // July 18, 2018 at 6:49 pm //

      Hey Evil, ease up a little. Rider 4 Life said maybe it was Edmonton. Maybe it was Calgary. Maybe it was BC. His point is that A51 was talking out of his ass.

      Speaking of talking out of ones ass, I would not normally put you in that category. But your reply was totally ignorant and as per my comment to you yesterday, The Esks first 5 games haven’t been anymore of a challenge than the Riders. You’ve lost to Hamilton and Toronto. We’ve beat both. So you’ve played two western teams: BC and Winnipeg with a back up.

      Let’s see what happens in a couple of weeks in your home town. I’ll tell you what, if the Riders win I’ll still have nothing but respect for the Esks. It’s never sportsmanlike to disrespect another team like you just did. There are only a couple of clowns on this site that do that and I wouldn’t think you’re one of them.

  9. Willy McCoy // July 18, 2018 at 5:14 pm //

    I read all the comments and an early question was asked which team was hot to sign the guy. Many teams were mentioned. Its no big deal that Edmonton was mentioned.
    Also Evil Empire your statement of wait until you play some real teams makes no sense! The EE lost to the TigerCats in Edmonton and the Riders beat the TigerCats the next week. There is no Envy about the EE from anyone anywhere.
    Right now anyone can beat anyone on any given day. The 1st 6 games are to work out all the problems. By mid season thats when the weak start to bend and by the last 6 games they break. Lets all sit back watch the games and enjoy ourselves

  10. Ride4life // July 18, 2018 at 5:35 pm //

    Lmao Evil Empire inbreed you and stampede take the cake. As for area 51 hasn’t a clue how to spell. Lol there was talk between winnipeg and Edmonton of grabbing this guy as might help out your dline as cats beat you and we beat the cats. But like riley said last year and bo nobody beats us in our house lmao to bad riders came in and kicked your ass in both Alberta games in YOUR HOUSE. so give it a break and see you in Edmonton as a repeat to last yearlmao. Oh and if that’s dragging the eskie name three the mud wow wait till mid season you will be going the river with out a paddle. Have a great day evil and go luck your wounds that cats left you with.

    • So you beat the Ti Cats and you make it sound like you won the Grey Cup, unbelievable. And the Eskimo team that you beat last year was the watered down version, we kicked your ass later

  11. Wow, even being charged (not convicted) gets you fired these days ….

  12. Bro McBro Face // July 18, 2018 at 6:52 pm //

    Just here to wipe up the cyber dump…. Trying to keep the place clean in case Clarence Denmark comes back!

  13. Rider4life // July 19, 2018 at 1:48 am //

    Hey DB like I said we beat both Toronto and Hamilton and they both beat you guys. You know o use to cheer for Edmonton when we weren’t playing them but last few years at Edmonton games you guys got to be the worst of all teams blaming refs being hurt ect. We take our wins or losses and we don’t get loose our shot like some of your eskie fans when they loose. Been to Calgary games and winnipeg’s and 90 percent of the time it’s a great atmosphere at the games. But still laughing at your watered down comment to bad it was your beloved Riley that said nobody beats us in our house just like Bo said. It’s a new year and anything can change so goodluck to all teams and sounds like our QB will be back for Edmonton or Calgary game. But we have BB and Watford for now see what happens for now.

  14. Rider4life // July 19, 2018 at 1:52 am //

    Thanks True Green and yep it’s the CFL and anything can happen it’s only the 5th game for us and threw the grape vine someone might be coming bk to play soon for the riders. But for now we go with what we have.

    Bad guys from BOTH SIDES of the BORDER unfortunately. No matter his standing with the Redblacks it certainly is a tragic way to most likely end a pro football career if he is found guilty. The only people who need everyone’s support are the VICTIMS of his actions. Hopefully the Canadian Justice system will see that they are represented in a fair way and they get their day in court. Most cases like this are REALLY TOUGH for the VICTIMS.

  16. All you guys need to chill, I know the entire Sherman family and I go to school with one of his younger brothers. I know Teague and I know he isn’t a scum bag or a piece of trash, if he sucked at playing football he wouldn’t be in the league in the first place. He made a terribly bad mistake while drunk at a bar. So instead of talking shit about people you don’t know keep it to yourself

    • Blue rules // July 19, 2018 at 9:33 am //

      Ball, sexual assault on two counts, he didn’t make a terrible mistake. HE [email protected]#D UP. he assaulted someone, perhaps you would feel different if we’re your sister??. Teague is a piece of s#it, by extension of you condoning him so are you!

  17. With regard to the charges, let’s wait to hear the details. Sexual assault is extremely broad in scope – – covers everything from forcible rape to patting a woman on the ass.

    With regard to his football playing abilities, I stand by my assessment of Sherman – – he’s garbage.

    He’s had a grand total of FIVE (5) defensive tackles over the past FOUR (4) seasons.

    Played EIGHT (8) games in 2016 and ONE (1) game in 2017.

    Ratio filler at best.

    • gridiron guru // July 19, 2018 at 10:28 am //

      i agree- this guy is almost useless judging by recent seasons… i read online that 2 women came froward from november of last year- i assume the details are what caused the commish to blackball him
