Patriots Never Reached Out To Richard Sherman

Patriots Never Reached Out To Richard Sherman

They let me go.

Sherman agreed to a three-year, incentive-laden deal worth up to $39.15 million, the 49ers announced Sunday. "I didn't abandon anybody".

It could be called petty, competitive, motivational - but Richard Sherman used a different word to explain his decision to sign with the 49ers. Sherman didn't force his way out of Seattle. 49ers GM John Lynch said late Saturday afternoon to the free-agent corner he was recruiting, Richard Sherman. DeShawn Shead, who will be released by the Seahawks on Monday, already has a visit lined up with the Lions next week, according to his agent, Cameron Foster, per ESPN's Brady Henderson.

Each team indicated they wouldn't match the 49ers' offer. "As long as I'm content with what I'm making, nothing else matters to me". "(Sherman) studied our contracts and knew who we'd given real guaranteed money to". That seems likely, assuming Sherman has been correct in saying he thinks he'll be fully healed by the summer.

Making things even more painful, 49ers GM John Lynch trolled the Seahawks for their painful Super Bowl XLIX loss to the Patriots, a game that featured the Seahawks losing because they chose to throw from the one-yard line instead of running Marshawn Lynch. And I am absolutely ecstatic (read my article on why the 49ers should sign him here). "Now, if I play the way I know I'm capable of playing, I know I'm going to get paid".

While it's unknown exactly the paycut Seattle wanted Sherman to take, it's surely less than $10 million for the 2018 season. Though specific terms of the contract have not been made public, Sherman disclosed certain guarantees can roll over into the next year should he make the Pro Bowl. The 10-year pro was due to make $6.5 million in salary, with a cap hit of $8.5 million. But he is obviously having some fun with Sherman at the Seahawks' expense.
