Richard Sherman to Seahawk fans burning his jersey: 'They let me go'

Richard Sherman to Seahawk fans burning his jersey: 'They let me go'

The deal for Sherman ended up being for three-years and worth $39 millions.

While it initially seems like San Francisco overpaid for a 29-year-old recovering from a ruptured Achilles, Sherman's contract is laden with incentives to cover the 49ers if he doesn't return to full health or is a shell of himself.

With Chancellor's future remaining cloudy due to a neck/nerve injury, re-signing McDougald was viewed as a priority for the Seahawks and he becomes the first of the 16 players on the team who could become unrestricted free agents this week to re-sign.

The New York Giants have formally cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after the two sides were unable to rework his contract. Sherman would get $8 million in base salary for each season, with one catch: The money doesn't become fully guaranteed until the third day of the league year in March 2019.

"That will be a tough one for Patriots fans to digest, but if you go back and watch the Super Bowl, other than a few plays, he didn't play that bad in that game". The result of those decisions was to release Sherman to open up some $11 million more in cap space. As in Shead's case, that includes players on one-year deals. And apparently defensive coordinator Robert Saleh - who worked alongside Sherman in Seattle before 2014 - also made an appearance at the dinner. A superstar corner is something the 49ers haven't had in years.

No player more than Sherman reflected the white-hot intensity of the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry when they battled for NFC supremacy in 2011-14, when the 49ers were led by Sherman's former coach at Stanford, Jim Harbaugh.

China says trade war with USA will hurt global economy
Beijing and Washington have agreed to hold talks in Beijing in the near future to discuss economic and trade matters. China does not want to enter in a war with the US , as it would have devastating consequences for world's economy.

According to Sports Illustrated's Peter King, when Sherman requested more time to consider the 49ers' offer, Lynch used a football euphemism that hit a little too close to home.

Injuries aside, Sherman - once considered enemy No. 1 of the 49ers fanbase - was asked how he'd adjust to a once-hostile crowd. John had already informed DeShawn that his contract was expiring after this year, and the Seattle Seahawks are just living up to their word.

As he put it Monday morning at his first media conference call from Niners' team headquarters in Santa Clara, "It re-ignited that gasoline fire I've always had burning".

Sherman is coming off a torn Achilles.

While it's unknown exactly the paycut Seattle wanted Sherman to take, it's surely less than $10 million for the 2018 season. Good news for him and for San Francisco; bad news for agents. "It was the same feeling I got before we played the Cardinals in London (33-0 win), and I loved what I saw: They were locked in, focused, determined and pumped". He has recorded 154 tackles, two interceptions, four forced fumbles and 24 pass deflections in his career.
