Raiders Baby Reggie awakens solicits CB Richard Sherman's services

Imagine pondering this thought back in 2014 - the San Francisco 49ers sign cornerback Richard Sherman.

Drafted in 2011, Sherman is a free agent for the first time in his career.

The free agent cornerback will be visiting with the San Francisco 49ers today after meeting with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan Friday night, according to reports.


Sherman told ESPN's Josina Anderson that he has interest from many teams, including the Tennessee Titans, Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Green Bay Packers. ESPN added that Sherman will meet with the team Saturday with the possibility of a contract getting done, but the 49ers want to make sure Sherman is on track with his rehab and healing from his injuries.

Sherman is recovering from two separate surgeries on his left and right Achilles tendons.

However, this isn't a done deal as Sherman is coming off of two surgeries on a torn Achilles tendon - which happened just in November - and it is now unknown what type of an asking price Sherman is presenting.


Of course, this is all dependent on Sherman actually leaving Northern California without a contract.

Sherman has had to battle some injuries in recent years, but when healthy, he is still one of the better cornerbacks in the league.

The shedding of Sherman, Bennett and Lane means the Seahawks now have just eight players left on their roster from the 2013 team that won the Super Bowl under contract for the 2018 season - quarterback Russell Wilson, receiver Doug Baldwin, linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright, Chancellor, Thomas, Avril, and punter Jon Ryan.
