Sherman received an incentive-laden three-year, $39 million contract that he negotiated himself as his own agent. "I didn't abandon anybody". They refused and will now have to look at Sherman on the other sideline at least twice in 2018.
The Legion of Boom is dead as we know it and to add insult to injury for Seattle, the arch-rival 49ers leapt headfirst into free agency and signed the face of that former dynastic defense, cornerback Richard Sherman.
Sherman played an integral role in the fierce NFC West rivalry between Seattle and San Francisco earlier this decade.
Bed Bath & Beyond (NASDAQ:BBBY) Lowered to "Hold" at ValuEngine
The retailer reported $0.44 earnings per share for the quarter, topping the Thomson Reuters' consensus estimate of $0.37 by $0.07. It dropped, as 84 investors sold BBBY shares while 103 reduced holdings. 19 funds opened positions while 53 raised stakes.
Paraag Marathe, executive vice president of football operations for the 49ers, said Sherman was prepared to leave with the best possible offer.
Sherman, at only 31 years old, could potentially have a lot left in the tank for a team that is willing to gamble on him. san Francisco is seemingly in a position where they feel they can afford to pay for a veteran who might not be on the team even two or three years from today.
"We had something no other team could offer", Lynch said."As long as I'm content with what I'm making, nothing else matters to me". 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. Easing his transition to San Francisco will be a familiar scheme. In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year. I think he felt, 'If I'm going anywhere, I want to play for [Patriots coach] Bill Belichick or [Rams defensive coordinator] Wade Phillips.' I talked to the Broncos at the scouting combine in Indy about it, and I thought we had a deal.
The contract includes a similar scenario for the 2020 season (with a base salary of $8 million if he has made the Pro Bowl in 2019 and that becomes guaranteed on the third day of the league year and fully guaranteed on April 1). But he is obviously having some fun with Sherman at the Seahawks' expense.
