Richard Sherman Reportedly Asked Seahawks To Trade Him

Share

It's not often you find one of the best cornerbacks in the National Football League on the trade market before they turn 30 years old, but appears to be the case with Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks. That may not have been the case.

"It has been my understanding all along that Richard Sherman was the one who initiated this", Schefter claimed. According to Adam Schefter, who could probably tell you general manager John Schneider's dump schedule, he's been hearing that Sherman is the one forcing the issue.

There has been plenty of buzz around the story of Sherman possibly being traded. Also, as we've mentioned above, the Jaguars just signed A.J. Bouye to a $67.5 million contract with $26 million fully guaranteed, and adding Sherman's $11.4 million to that in 2017 might be overkill at the position. His team, the Seattle Seahawks, have even acknowledged as much on several occasions.

NFL.com reported Thursday that the Seahawks are looking for "potentially a very good player on a lower contract" as part of a deal for the cornerback.

"I wouldn't want to leave this city and my guys, but I understand it's a business and organizational philosophies change", Sherman said about the recent trade speculation.

The Seahawks still hold all the leverage, with Sherman only able to hold out if he is unhappy.

There are two sides to every coin, so what are the reasons to go after a cornerback like Sherman and what are the reasons to stay away? That's the question we asked our readers on Wednesday, and you made it clear that the majority opinion among fans is that the Colts should not pursue the trade. Viens had the Seahawks trading their 26th overall pick to Cleveland for the 33rd pick and the 65th pick and selecting Kevin King with the first pick of the second round.

The Steelers don't acquire players for high draft picks (biggest acquisition since 2000: CB Brandon Boykin in 2015 for a 2016 5th round pick), which leaves the Cowboys as potential suitors.

If Sherman really wants out and is not traded in the next few weeks, it will be worth watching to see if he attends the voluntary portions of the team's off-season program - Michael Bennett skipped OTAs in the past when he was unhappy with his contract.
