Richard Sherman represented himself, struck solid deal with 49ers


"Sherman said Schneider told him, 'Incentives [are] a little rich for me.' Sherman called Oakland GM Reggie McKenzie, who said he wasn't going to have the cap money to compete for him. I didn't abandon anybody".

But while Sherman didn't waste too much time inking a deal with San Francisco, a fellow star corner wasn't as eager about taking his talents to the Bay Area. The Seahawks opted to release Shead and allow him to test free agency instead.

The 49ers were interested in making certain Sherman is healing from his injuries, ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported, and apparently are convinced that he will recover.

"I don't think any agent in the business could have done a better job of negotiating this contract", the headstrong Sherman said.

That's right. Seahawks fans showed just how dumb they are when some burned a Sherman No. 25 jersey after Seattle released him against his wishes.

"Richard is one of the premier competitors Kyle and I have ever encountered", 49ers general manager John Lynch said in a statement. But I wanted to make sure. Unless a lowered down contract is accepted by Sherman, 2017 may be the last time Seahawks fans will see Sherman, and the entire "Legion of Boom" in action. His deflection on a potential winning touchdown pass in the 2013 NFC championship game against the 49ers led to an interception that sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl, which they won.

The result: Sherman and the 49ers negotiated a heavily incentivized deal, but one which gives the almost-30-year-old Sherman a chance to match the $11 million he made in Seattle. In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year.

The Seahawks surely know as well as anyone how Sherman's recovery is going and may well have viewed it as likely being at least a $10 million deal, assuming he gets and stays healthy. The franchises square off twice per season, and Sherman will be on the opposite sideline this year. It becomes fully guaranteed on April 1, 2019. He them told The MMQB it includes guarantees that roll over each season if he makes the Pro Bowl. Sherman now leads the National Football League in interceptions since he was drafted in 2011 and his 99 pass deflections also leads the entire NFL.
