Seahawks Reportedly Willing To Listen To Offers For Richard Sherman

We’ve discussed the possibility of the Green Bay Packers making a trade to address their issues at cornerback. Both the Los Angeles Rams Trumaine Johnson and New England Patriots Malcolm Butler are available. You can apparently add the Seattle Seahawks Richard Sherman to the list.

The biggest difference between the Sherman situation and the other two players are that the Seahawks aren’t actively shopping him.

“I truly believe based on what I hear around the National Football League that the Seahawks would, in fact — for the right deal — trade Richard Sherman,” Michael Lombardi said on The Ringer NFL Show.

There are definitely some things not to like about Sherman. He’s cheap, he’s a loudmouth, at least part of his success is due to playing with Earl Thomas.

On the other side of that coin is the fact that Sherman is the most accomplished cornerback that is potentially available. He’s a three-time first-team All Pro, has a defensive player of the year award and leads the NFL in interceptions since 2011.

Sherman is due $11.4 million in salary this year and $11 million in 2018, before becoming a free agent. Based on the money Stephon Gilmore ($13 million annually) and A.J. Bouye ($13.5 million annually) just got in free agency, that’s completely palatable.

But what would a team have to give up to get Sherman? Likely much more than the Packers would be willing to part with.

    I second Kato’s “LOL.” Not in this fucking lifetime.

    Also, getting a hold of Sherman might interfere with getting one of our very valuable 7th round comp. picks.

    This would mean that TT “The Frugal GM” would have to come out of his “Wide Stance” in the men’s public restroom . . . He IS NOT doing that until draft day.
