Kanascity.com totaled the fullback’s contributions:

… he found a home as a lead blocker and as a leader of the special teams, where he played at least 200 snaps in every season. He totaled 2,593 special teams snaps in his career, which began in Arizona, the organization that drafted him in the fifth round in 2011.

He scored five total touchdowns in his career, his lone score last season serving as one of his most memorable. The Chiefs dialed up a play especially for him in which quarterback Patrick Mahomes flipped an underhand pass his way for a touchdown against the Ravens. The Chiefs called it Smoked Sausage, in homage to Sherman’s nickname, The Sausage.
