49ers CB Richard Sherman defends self-negotiated contract, changing teams

Richard Sherman

With all of this considered, Sherman said playing his former team at least twice per year factored into his decision.

Less than 24 hours after Richard Sherman signed his new deal with the 49ers, the details of the contract are out, and let's just say that some people aren't impressed with the negotiating skills of Sherman's agent, which is kind of an insult to Sherman, since he serves as his own agent.

Sherman's seven-year union with the Seattle Seahawks came to an end on Friday, as the club released him to avoid playing his scheduled $11 million salary for the 2018 season. The sports news website said that Sherman's release will not be the last for the team's veteran players. "It was such a great opportunity. I helped the organization get to a great place and stay there", Sherman told The MMQB. "I admit it's kinda weird having to cheer for you now", wrote one, Candle STAC Park. "I didn't abandon anybody". He also called Matt Patricia of the Detroit Lions and the Raiders Reggie McKenzie to let them know he had reached a deal with the 49ers. Sherman did not want to leave, yet a minority of moron Seahawks fans blamed the Legion of Boom member for getting fired and became the latest pinheads to burn a player's jersey in effigy. In November, Sherman sustained a ruptured Achilles tendon in one leg and later had a minor surgery to clean up bone spurs in the other.

The Seahawks also reportedly turned down the chance to match the niners offer, which Sherman had negotiated himself.

Lorenzo Neal, a former standout fullback in the National Football League who now co-hosts Mornings with Joe, Lo and Dibs on San Francisco's 95.7 FM The Game, joined 710 ESPN Seattle's John Clayton to talk about the feeling in the Bay Area about the former archrival of the Niners jumping ship from the Seahawks.

The San Francisco 49ers are running dangerously close to becoming the NFL team that has the biggest off-season glow-up, but they'll have to outdo the Cleveland Browns who appear to be shaking up the entire league.

Sean Smith will be released by Oakland Raiders
He said he was only on the field in certain packages early in the season and could not get into the flow of a game as a result. He allowed opposing quarterbacks to post a 116.5 passer rating when targeting him in 2016, according to SportRadar.

"I'm vengeful in that way". But I wanted to make sure.

The basics of Sherman's contract include a $3 million signing bonus, $6 million in per-game roster bonuses, a $2 million 2018 roster bonus and up to $12 million in incentives. It gives me the ability to control my destiny.

Sherman then celebrated a Thanksgiving night win in a road game against the 49ers the following season by eating a turkey leg on the 50-yard line.

"Well, I'm the best corner in the game!" I couldn't feel secure in my contract. "I think I am going to fit in and know exactly what I need to do and where I need to be".

You can count Browns offensive lineman Joe Thomas among the people who thought that Sherman negotiated a awful deal for himself.
