Colin Kaepernick is usually a man of very few words to the media, but the topic of Richard Sherman and the Seahawks had the 49ers quarterback channeling Muhammad Ali on Thursday.

In an exclusive interview with The Post, Kaepernick unloaded on Sherman for the Seattle All-Pro cornerback’s comments during his infamous TV interview after the NFC Championship Game two weeks ago and for taunting Kaepernick with a choke sign at the end of that contest.

“I think everyone knows his comments were ridiculous,” Kaepernick said at the Super Bowl XLVIII media center in Midtown, referring to the FOX postgame interview in which Sherman mocked 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree and proclaimed himself the best cornerback in the NFL.

“As my dad has always told me, if you have to tell people how good you are, then how good are you really?” Kaepernick added. “If you have to go on national TV and try to say you’re the best cornerback in the league, then you’ve got your own insecurities.”
