Richard Sherman has the interest of several NFL teams
The best cornerback in the market is always available before the second week of the NFL season. Former All-Pro Seahawks Richard Sherman is attracting the interest of several teams, according to a report by Tom Pelissero at the NFL Network.
Sources say the Super Bowl Buccaneers champion touched base with Sherman, 33, last week after losing the starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting indefinitely with a dislocated elbow. The 49ers have also maintained contact with Sherman since his contract expired in March and, after losing Jason verrett to a season-ending knee injury in Week 1, expressed interest in bringing Sherman back later in the season. The Seahawks have also been open about their discussions with Sherman about a possible reunion. “
Seattle makes sense to Sherman on many levels. The Seahawks have changed their cornerback rotation a lot in recent weeks and have a few on the injured reserve list.
Today’s game should give us a better idea of how much help they need in this position. The Titans have arguably the best 1-2 wide receiver punch in the league with AJ Brown and Julio Jones. If Seattle has coverage issues, the front office should consider bringing in Sherman or another veteran to help.
