Yes, you read that correctly. Richard Sherman will stay in the NFC West and is headed to the San Francisco 49ers. Sherman signed a three-year deal worth up to $39 million, including a five-million signing bonus. The Seahawks released Sherman on Friday, and the 29-year-old cornerback is coming off of an Achilles injury he suffered last season. Perhaps, the rivalry is renewed...
Also, if Sherman — who’s coming off a torn Achilles — makes the Pro Bowl in 2018, my understanding is another $16M in base salary for 2019-20 becomes guaranteed. Creative structure from Paraag Marathe and Sherman’s agent ... Sherman.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 11, 2018
