Richard Sherman reveals 'vengeful' 49ers signing

Richard Sherman is probably one of the most high-profile free agents now sitting on the market and his release from Seattle merited immediate attention from just about every team in the league.

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

Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald tweeted on Saturday that the Patriots "never reached out" to Sherman once the Seahawks released him, making him a free agent.

After signing Sherman, I expect the 49ers to avoid giving up the big bucks to any more secondary players in free agency and, instead, target cornerback depth in the NFL Draft. The 2017 season was a hard one for the 31-year-old Cromartie, who didn't have an interception and was suspended for one game by then-coach Ben McAdoo for leaving practice without permission. The deal reportedly is worth up to $39.15 million. Sherman, along with Michael Bennett, were two quick casualties of the franchise shake-up.

That Detroit wouldn't be willing to pony up for that puts a slight (but strong) limit on how far they're willing to go to upgrade the No. 2 cornerback position.

The story reveals that after hammering out the details, Sherman called the Raiders and Lions - two other teams he had expected to visit after being released by the Seahawks on Friday - as well as the Seahawks.

"We had something no other team could offer", Lynch said.
"I didn't abandon anybody". "(Sherman) studied our contracts and knew who we'd given real guaranteed money to". The contract has $18 million tied to per-game roster bonuses and incentives. Easing his transition to San Francisco will be a familiar scheme.

The contract includes a similar scenario for the 2020 season (with a base salary of $8 million if he has made the Pro Bowl in 2019 and that becomes guaranteed on the third day of the league year and fully guaranteed on April 1).
