  • 49ers, Raiders pursuing Richard Sherman

Reports Saturday morning indicated it may not take long for Richard Sherman to find a new home after he was released by the Seahawks on Friday.

The 29-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his National Football League career with the Seahawks, including their Super Bowl winning season of 2013.

Seattle plays the 49ers twice every season in the NFC West.

"I want to go to a contender", Sherman said Friday on KIRO radio in Seattle.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll told reporters at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis that Sherman had "minor surgery" to clean up his left Achilles. Smith, who caught Sherman's tip of a Colin Kaepernick pass for a game-clinching interception in the 2014 NFC title game, is under contract with the 49ers through 2021 after signing with them a year ago.




The NFL has been a whirlwind of trades and free agency signings recently. He is expected to have his first free agent meeting with the 49ers.

Can you imagine Richard Sherman and Darius Slay as the Detroit Lions starting cornerbacks? 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. He's very familiar to defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who was an assistant with the Seahawks from 2011-2013.

The cost-cutting moves will give the Seahawks an estimated $38 million in available salary cap space - they had $13 million at the beginning of the week.

I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance?
