Lions Were Reportedly One Of Four Finalists To Sign Richard Sherman

The newest member of the San Francisco 49ers, cornerback Richard Sherman, has been a bitter rival in the eyes of the Niner Faithful for the past seven years. It's business, of course.

Once the offer was on the table, Sherman called the Seahawks, who had released him just a day before, to ask if they could match the offer. Oh, and there was the added benefit of playing Seattle twice a year; as Sherman noted, "I'm vengeful in that way". "I'd love to get to play in that stadium again in different colors". It was such a great opportunity. I also wanted to stay close, just for my family, me and my fiancé, we're getting married at the end of the month.

One angry fan posted a video of himself burning his Richard Sherman Jersey.

"I think Kyle is one of the most innovative and creative offensive minds in football". They appeared to be a front-runner for Trumaine Johnson, the top free agent corner this offseason, but there are plenty of other options there if Johnson goes somewhere else. "I didn't abandon anybody". In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year.

49ers General Manager John Lynch and Sherman shared intimate details of their negotiations to Peter King of The MMQB.

We'll have to sit and wait to see if the 49ers make the jump but right now all reports are leaning toward this becoming a reality for Sherman and the 49ers. Although initially reported as having a $5 million signing bonus, it is actually $3 million, with a $2 million roster bonus if he passes his physical prior to training camp.

"He's such a versatile player, he's played both for us", coach Pete Carroll said last week at the scouting combine.

The Serie A club announced the move on Tuesday, while also confirming that Astori's former club Cagliari would also do the same. Legendary Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon posted on social media following the shock news of Davide Astori's death.

The niners players at least seemed pumped to have him joining them!

"It definitely had a part of it", he said. The Seahawks opted to release Shead and allow him to test free agency instead. He has experience at all five positions in Seattle's secondary since the team signed him as an undrafted free agent in 2012.

As if Sherman needs more motivation to come back strong, he'll now have the opportunity to face his former side twice in the regular season.

The incentive-laden deal could be worth up to $39.15 million according to ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Sherman, who turns 30 on March 30, is a four-time Pro Bowl player and a three-time selection as a first-team All-Pro. Sherman joins Michael Bennett as the latest to depart the Seattle defense, leaving the faithful "12th Man" wondering what was next for their team. I have tremendous love and appreciation for the years that I've spent there and the love and respect that they've given me over the years.

Sherman became a star with his aggressive coverage and nabbing the league's most interceptions since 2011, albeit only two last season in nine games before his Achilles injury.
