Richard Sherman has already partnered with big tech companies like T-Mobile and Apple-owned Beats by Dre.

Now Sherman is teaming up with Amazon.com.

The Seahawks star cornerback today made a special Prime Now delivery, showing up at the doorstep of a customer who ordered Seahawks gear using Amazon’s new speedy delivery service.

While Sherman has impressed with his on-the-field performance — two-time Pro Bowler, 2014 NFC Defensive Player of the Year, Super Bowl champion — his off-the-field success is certainly notable.

The Stanford graduate appeared on the cover of Madden NFL last year, was a keynote speaker at Adobe’s big Summit conference, and even has his own smartphone game. He also writes for Sports Illustrated, has a clothing line, and counts nearly 1.5 million followers on Twitter. Entrepreneurs can probably learn a thing or two from the Compton, Calif. native.

amazonprimenow121As for Prime Now, Amazon launched the one-hour delivery service last week. Prime Now operates between 8 a.m. and midnight, seven days a week, and is accessible through the Prime Now app. A minimum order of $20 is required — one-hour delivery costs $7.99 and two-hour delivery is free. The service is only available to members of Amazon’s $99/year Prime Now membership program.

We tested Prime Now last week and had a smooth experience ordering chips, orange juice, and alcohol — the Seattle Prime Now launch marked the U.S. debut of beer, wine and liquor delivery through Prime Now in the United States.

Seattle is the tenth Prime Now city, and the first on the West Coast, following the original launch in Manhattan in December.

Amazon said today that popular items ordered through Prime Now in Seattle include paper towels, organic milk and string cheese and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. No word on if and when Sherman will make another surprise delivery to a lucky Seahawks fan.
