Sherman, 29, wasn’t quite his typical dominant self during the 2016 season. That likely had a lot to do with a “significant” injury to his MCL that he and the team both kept quiet about during the year. Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Site.
He has yet to miss a game in his six-year career, will cost $13.6 million against the cap in 2017 and $13.2 million in 2018, with only $2.2 million in dead money for the latter year. He has 30 interceptions since joining the NFL in 2011, 10 more than anybody else at his position. And last year Pro Football Focus graded him 13th among 111 qualified cornerbacks.
A recent piece highlighted the greatest need for each of the 32 teams, and only four were seen as in need of help at cornerback. None of those teams — the Bills, the Eagles, the Cardinals and, strangely, the Seahawks — have enough salary-cap space to take on an expensive corner. And others who do would probably find a more appealing alternative with Sherman, who is under one more year of control than Johnson and comes at a cheaper rate.
The Seahawks have been fielding calls to trade Richard Sherman, but that doesn’t mean it will happen. The Seattle Seahawks have been unconventionally open about the possibility of trading star cornerback Richard Sherman, a three-time first-team All-Pro who, at 29, is still considered one of the game’s best at his position. If the Seahawks find a trade partner for cornerback Richard Sherman, the timing of the consummation of the deal becomes critical. Not for the team that gets Sherman, but for the Seahawks.
Carroll told reporters at the end of March that he doubted any trade would happen, although he also admitted that the team has fielded calls. Schneider also made it clear that Sherman has been made aware of the fact that the team has been fielding trade talks and has had an open line of communication with the cornerback.
