Seahawks turned down chance to match Richard Sherman's 49ers' contract

Seahawks turned down chance to match Richard Sherman's 49ers' contract

Even though the Seattle Seahawks released Richard Sherman, a small group of fans decided he should be hated because he signed with a different NFC West team.

Richard Sherman, healthy, would immediately ascend to the top of San Francisco's starting cornerback spots.

Sherman smiled. "I've been at the 1-yard line before", he said, "and it didn't go so well".

"Vengeful", Sherman said. "I love the fan base to death, and I loved playing there". The franchises square off twice per season, and Sherman will be on the opposite sideline this year. The deal reportedly is worth up to $39.15 million. They let me go.

And if we're not very much in the game, they could get away from us very quickly with the athletes that they have in their team. France were superior at the breakdown, an area where England also suffered when they lost to Scotland in their previous game.

Among the reasons Richard Sherman agreed to join the 49ers a day after being released by the Seahawks was the chance to get back at his former team.

Shead tore his ACL in Seattle's playoff loss to the Falcons in 2017 and only played in two games a year ago. "I didn't abandon anybody".

Incredible. It's not a full-blown troll job, per se, because it's not like Lynch was on the other side of the ball and it's not like he was even with the 49ers at the time. We'll have to sit and wait to see if the 49ers make the jump but right now all reports are leaning toward this becoming a reality for Sherman and the 49ers.

And some of the incentives initially reported as being tie to the Pro Bowl are instead tied to making the All-Pro team, a much tougher task - $1 million for making it to the Pro Bowl and $2 million for making the All-Pro team. The 49ers have skin in the game. Easing his transition to San Francisco will be a familiar scheme. The 10-year pro was due to make $6.5 million in salary, with a cap hit of $8.5 million. I think he felt, 'If I'm going anywhere, I want to play for [Patriots coach] Bill Belichick or [Rams defensive coordinator] Wade Phillips.' I talked to the Broncos at the scouting combine in Indy about it, and I thought we had a deal.
