Former Seattle Seahawks corner Richard Sherman could find himself in the NFC West again next season as he is scheduled to meet with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, according to a report by Adam Schefter.

The Seattle Seahawks could be seeing more of Richard Sherman than they would prefer during the 2018 season. On Friday, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan had dinner in Los Gatos with Sherman and his wife, The Athletic reported. While people feel Sherman's skills have diminished a bit lately, he tweeted out some interesting statistics from last season after being released.

Apparently, at least one other team has "reached out" as NFL Network's Tom Pelissero is reporting the cornerback will be meeting with the Lions next week.

Let's ignore the dislike many Niners fans probably have for Sherman for a moment and explore the other question.

Even if Sherman does not sign with the 49ers immediately it seems pretty clear a return to the Seahawks on a lesser deal than he had isn't first on Sherman's agenda. He tore his Achilles tendon in November. Sherman went viral in January 2014 for using that same quote, which comes from Game of Thrones.

Sherman was part of five Seahawks playoff teams, appeared in two Super Bowls, and helped Seattle win Super Bowl XLVIII.

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

The releases of Sherman and Lane leave Seattle's cornerback spot with some uncertainty heading into free agency.

San Francisco started the offseason with a $137.5 million pact with impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo. He leads the National Football League with 32 interceptions since 2011 and is a four-time Pro Bowler.
