Richard Sherman Trade Rumors: Seahawks Exploring Options to Move CB

Posted March 08, 2018

Richard Sherman's tenure in Seattle could be coming to an end.

It may be different this time, because NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported that Sherman told teammates goodbye this week, saying that he does not expect to be with the Seahawks in 2018.

Reports earlier on Wednesday suggested cornerback Sherman was also leaving Seattle, reportedly already having told team-mates he would not be back for an eighth season.

The Seahawks plucked Ken Norton Jr. from the San Francisco 49ers' staff, which he was a part of for about a week, to replace fired defensive coordinator Kris Richard.

Sherman responded to that report by telling ESPN's Josina Anderson that he hasn't "been told anything" about his future.

The likelihood is that the Seahawks will cut Sherman, making him a free agent. Jeremy Lane and Kam Chancellor made posts seemingly indicating the cornerback was leaving Seattle.

Even if there are some concerns surrounding Sherman after watching his season come to an end in November past year after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon, it should be noted that he appeared to be ahead of schedule last month, which is great news for any potential suitors.

Sherman had surgery shortly after and also had a surgery on his left Achilles last month to clear up bone spurts.

Both Sherman and Bennett were with the Seahawks during the team's Super Bowl XLVIII championship. For the 2018 season, he's due to be paid $11 million in base salary and a $2.2 million signing bonus by the Seahawks, or any potential suitors looking to gain the rights to his services.
