An end of an era! According to several reports, the Seahawks are releasing Cornerback Richard Sherman. The 29-year-old, four-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro is now a free-agent, but still could re-sign with the Seahawks in free-agency, starting on March 14. The Seahawks drafted Sherman in 2011 and helped lead Seattle to two Super Bowls, including a title in 2013.
