If Sherman's market doesn't develop like expected, then perhaps the team could be in play, but as it stands now they are not interested.
Sherman has been one of the top players at his position for years, but is about to turn 30 and is coming off an achilles injury which ended his 2017 season.
Patriots fans hoping Richard Sherman would be on his way to New England woke up Saturday to some bad news. Here's what people are saying.
"Would I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance?" He then had a separate surgery to clean bone spurs out of his left Achilles last month.
The 29-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his National Football League career with the Seahawks, including their Super Bowl winning season of 2013.
But Sherman said at the Sports Star awards he thought he would be ready for the beginning of mini-camp. "Looking for somewhere I will be comfortable".
Sherman is now an unrestricted free agent and free to negotiate and sign with another team. The team has a talented corner in Darius Slay. Also pursuing Sherman are the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions.
While it sounds good on paper, bringing Sherman into an already crowded cornerback group wouldn't be the most ideal situation unless he chose to take quite a hefty pay cut from the terms that he has grown accustomed to in recent years. But if a report from ESPN's Josina Anderson is to be believed, New England might not even kick the tires on the four-time All-Pro.
