San Francisco 49ers: Pros & cons for signing cornerback Richard Sherman

11 March, 2018, 01:58 | Author: Drew Briggs
  • Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman motions to fans after intercepting in the end zone against the San Francisco 49ers in the second half of an NFL football game Sunday Dec. 23 2012 in Seattle. The Seahawks won 42-13

Sherman dined Friday night in Los Gatos with his wife and Shanahan, as first reported by The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II.

Sherman is now an unrestricted free agent and free to negotiate and sign with another team.

The Seahawks officially announced the move Friday and thanked Sherman in a statement that read: "Thank you for helping win championships, shape our culture and define success in Seattle".

Sherman is scheduled to meet Saturday with 49ers officials, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sherman is also expected to undergo a physical and meet with team doctors to talk about the Achilles tendon he tore past year, NFL Network reported.

NFL Network also noted that Sherman "has a strong affinity for the West Coast", and San Francisco is close to Stanford, where Sherman went to college.

Sherman made All-Pro four times in seven seasons with the Seahakws, who released him with a failed-physical designation to spare $11 million on their 2018 salary cap.

Shaquill Griffin will return as the starter at right cornerback and the team is expected to tender restricted free agent Justin Coleman to return as the nickel corner. Saleh has implemented a defensive system that is similar to the Seahawks.

Add cornerback to the Carolina Panthers' list of offseason needs after Friday's news that they're trading third-year CB Daryl Worley to the Philadelphia Eagles for wideout Torrey Smith. In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.
