San Francisco 49ers sign CB Richard Sherman to three-year deal
Mar 12 2018 by Kathy Alvarado
In an interview with Peter King of the MMQB, Sherman said he feels "vengeful" and made sure to put emphasis on the simple truth Seattle parted ways with him. "I didn't abandon anybody". That means we are living up to our word and we're going to release him, otherwise his contract would be required to toll.' So kudos to the Seahawks for doing the right thing.
The Seahawks declined a chance to match the contract offer Sherman received from the 49ers, according to an account of the negotiations published Monday on Monday Morning Quarterback on SI.com (Sherman wrote for the site for a year or so during his Seahawks career). 49ers GM John Lynch said late Saturday afternoon to the free-agent corner he was recruiting, Richard Sherman.
During his seven years with the Seattle Seahawks, Sherman became regarded as one of the best corners in the game and now leads the league with 32 interceptions since entering the NFL as a fifth-round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. But general manager John Schneider had already assured Shead that he would be an unrestricted free agent. Sherman called Oakland GM Reggie McKenzie, who said he wasn't going to have the cap money to compete for him. "Aqib Talib. I think he didn't like the idea of being traded-he wanted to be released". Unless a lowered down contract is accepted by Sherman, 2017 may be the last time Seahawks fans will see Sherman, and the entire "Legion of Boom" in action. He would theoretically make a few million extra for making Pro Bowls, hitting statistical milestones, etc.
Fashion titan Hubert de Givenchy dies aged 91
The announcement of his death came from the Givenchy fashion house, which is now owned by French luxury goods group LVMH. He went on to work with Robert Piguet and Lucien Lelong in 1946, and then for Elsa Schiaparelli between 1947 and 1951.
WWE's Statement On Jeff Hardy's Arrest
He was recently cleared to return and was scheduled to begin training at the WWE Performance Centre in Orlando this month. As is law in North Carolina, Hardy has had his driver's license suspended for 30 days until the case is tried.
Sherman also gets, as previously reported, a base salary of $2 million, gets $1 million if he takes part in 90 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps, and $2 million total if he is on the 46-man roster bonus each week (or, $125,000 for every game he is on the 46-man roster). They refused and will now have to look at Sherman on the opposite sideline at least twice in 2018.
It seems the end has come for the journey that the Seattle Seahawks and corner Richard Sherman have shared together since the 29-year old first entered the National Football League.
"Once I make a Pro Bowl, $8 million the next year is guaranteed for me". Sherman also had a cleanup surgery on his opposite ankle during the offseason.
