Packers Have "Preliminary Interest" in CB Richard Sherman

Packers Have

Former Seattle Seahawks corner Richard Sherman could find himself in the NFC West again next season as he is scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, according to a report by Adam Schefter.

Sherman became a star in Seattle, bringing a brash attitude and willingness to speak out on any topic to go along with his stellar play.

"I want to go to a contender", Sherman told KIRO 97.3 FM on Friday, a flagship Seattle radio station.

Per Anderson, Sherman said he will start running on a treadmill next week. The days of an Achilles tear being an immediate career-ender are long past, but for a cornerback who never had outstanding deep speed-and is less than three weeks from his 30th birthday-it's hard to think he'll be back to top form before the season starts.

"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.

Of course, the 49ers are only going to sign Sherman if they're satisfied with his health and there's no guarantee that's going to happen. He took to Twitter on Saturday to provide an update on his free agency.

While T.J. Carrie was the best cornerback the team had last season, he comes into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

But maybe Detroit's "preliminary interest" in Sherman signals that they're about to be more active in the veteran cornerback market than we thought.

The Seahawks on Wednesday traded Michael Bennett to the Eagles and are also expected to soon release defensive end Cliff Avril, who may not be able to play football again after suffering a neck/nerve injury in October that required surgery. The Seahawks will add $11 million in salary cap space for 2018 with his departure. In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.
