49ers to meet with Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman will remain in NFC

On Friday, the Seattle Seahawks released Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman, and many teams are interested in bringing in his services.

Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman (25) eats turkey during a TV interview on the field after the San Francisco 49ers' lost 19-3 in their National Football League game against Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Thursday, Nov. 27, 2014. Some of the moves the 49ers have made this season indicate they're trying to do just that, including signing Jimmy Garoppolo to a five-year, $137.5 million contract last month.

Sherman was due $13 million for the 2018 season and his release gives Seattle a salary cap savings of about $11 million.

Maybe they were hoping Sherman's age and injury status would flatten his market.

No player more than Sherman reflected the intensity of the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry when the NFC West rivals jostled from 2011-13 was at its zenith.

But Sherman said at the Sports Star awards he thought he would be ready for the beginning of mini-camp.

Richard Sherman reportedly is moving closer to finding a new home.

Shaquill Griffin will return as the starter at right cornerback and the team is expected to tender restricted free agent Justin Coleman to return as the nickel corner.

Seattle also could re-sign Byron Maxwell, who returned to the Seahawks in November following Sherman's season-ending injury and started the rest of the way at left cornerback.

I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance? He joined the Packers' medical staff a year ago. The three-time All-Pro has recorded 32 interceptions and 99 passes defensed in 105 career games.
