Oddsmakers list Chargers as a suitor for Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman thanks Seahawks'Memories to last a lifetime

Free agent cornerback Richard Sherman, fresh off his departure from the Seattle Seahawks, is already lining u free agent visits.

If not for one of the more boneheaded calls in National Football League history, Sherman would be leaving the Great Northwest as a two-time Vince Lombardi Trophy victor. Health will surely play a role in the type of contract Sherman receives in free agency.

Sherman was in Las Vegas for NFL Players Association meetings until Friday afternoon but is thought to have then traveled to the Bay Area for his meeting with the 49ers.

Sherman, who turns 30 this month, said Friday on KIRO-AM in Seattle that he wants to go to a franchise that's building a championship team.

Sherman balked at that so the Seahawks instead explored trade options. Condotta says that the team was interested in trying to get Sherman to agree to a pay cut but that he "balked" at such a proposal.

In seven years with the Seahawks, Sherman made four Pro Bowls, earned two First-Team All-Pro selections and won a Super Bowl.

At the end of the day, while Sherman certainly would be great addition to the Pats, the team might elect to enter the 2018 Season with a cornerback depth chart headlined by Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe and Johnathen Jones. While that still leaves room for at least one veteran, it would be odd for Detroit to go for a big-money veteran cornerback when there are much bigger needs elsewhere. Also on the roster are DeAndre Elliott, who saw some action as a rookie in 2016 before spending all of last year on Injured Reserve, and Mike Tyson, a sixth-round pick in 2017 who spent most of last year on the practice squad. Niners general manager John Lynch has plenty of salary-cap space to potentially sign Sherman - roughly $70 million, according to Over The Cap. He told SI.com's Albert Breer the Seahawks "wanted the financial flexibility going into free agency but expressed that they wanted me to return and will be in contact".
