Richard Sherman's New Contract Has Seahawk Fans BURNING Jerseys!

The dismantling of the Seattle Seahawks defence has been their rivals' gain as the San Francisco 49ers added Richard Sherman in a high-profile signing to strengthen their secondary. Sherman will have to prove his health, first, but reports are already alluding that Sherman is a favorite to land a deal with San Francisco.

During his seven years with the Seattle Seahawks, Sherman became regarded as one of the best corners in the game and now leads the league with 32 interceptions since entering the NFL as a fifth-round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.

The New York Giants have formally cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after the two sides were unable to rework his contract. Cameron Wake, Terrell Suggs, Michael Crabtree, Demaryius Thomas, and more have done it. Players on this level who have suffered such an injury should have a one-year contract impacted, but not a multi-year deal. Sherman would get $8 million in base salary for each season, with one catch: The money doesn't become fully guaranteed until the third day of the league year in March 2019. The second is the clincher; he later says he warned the 49ers sideline, "If you throw it my way, it will end the game".

According to an account of the negotiations published Monday on Monday Morning Quarterback on SI.com, the Seahawks declined a chance to match the contract offer Sherman received from the 49ers, with general manager John Schneider saying the incentives were "a little too rich for me". A restricted free agent last offseason, Shead signed a one-year deal worth $1.2 million.

The Oakland Raiders seemed to be in play when the Seattle Seahawks released Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman on Friday. "I do want a chance to show what I can do out there".

"Vengeful", Sherman said. "I love the fan base to death, and I loved playing there".

The tolling rule applies to players who, in the final season of their contract, remain on PUP as of their team's sixth regular-season game.

So when Sherman speaks, people listen, and that is something the 49ers will have to adjust to in a locker room that grew admirably tight amid last season's adversity (0-9 start) and eventual triumph (5-0 finish).

Additionally, consider what 49ers GM John Lynch said about using Garoppolo as a recruiting tool (via ESPN's Nick Wagoner).

While it's unknown exactly the paycut Seattle wanted Sherman to take, it's surely less than $10 million for the 2018 season. He spoke so highly of Ahkello Witherspoon, the 49ers' other projected starting cornerback, that Sherman claimed: "He's going to be a star". "We played pretty well that game".
