2018 free agency: Raiders showing interest in Richard Sherman

Health will surely play a role in the type of contract Sherman receives in free agency.

San Francisco is Sherman's first visit and Pelissero reports that meetings with the team will continue through the afternoon.

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. If the 49ers are satisfied enough with what the physical shows and the two sides can agree on compensation then Sherman could be a 49er by the end of the weekend, it appears. Sherman declined to comment after the meeting.

"I plan on playing five or six more years whether it's here or elsewhere", Sherman said.

Desmond, who was short-sighted and could not see properly from the back, sat in the floor section and refused to leave. Desmond's case is credited with playing a role in legally ending segregation in Nova Scotia in 1954.

In addition, 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh was a member of the Seahawks from 2011 to 2013. Sherman discussed Friday on KIRO-AM in Seattle what he's looking for in a new team.

The release by the team announcing the move had "parted ways" with Sherman and referred to him as "no longer on the team" and didn't mention whether he could return. Overthecap.com has Seattle at just under $31 million for 2018 after Friday. But they ended previous year on a five-game winning streak behind new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, and their moves this offseason show that they're serious about building a victor.

Four of Sherman's interceptions have come against the 49ers, and he was a headliner of a vaunted defense that's keyed Seattle's nine-game winning streak over their NFC West foes. Smith, who caught Sherman's tip of a Colin Kaepernick pass for a game-clinching interception in the 2014 NFC title game, is under contract with the 49ers through 2021 after signing with them past year.
