  • Seahawks Shaquill Griffin must lead post Sherman youth movement

The Seattle Seahawks cut ties with star cornerback Richard Sherman, who became one of the NFL's premier cornerbacks during his seven seasons with the team, yesterday. We love you and your unwavering competitiveness, confidence and fierce passion for football and life. He has said that he plans to be running at full speed some time next month and will be ready to play by training camp.

Sherman was due $13 million for the 2018 season and his release gives Seattle a salary cap savings of about $11 million.

Will Richard Sherman's foray into free agency be brief?

The talented, brash defender has been one of the faces of a team that appeared in two Super Bowls and won one, success built on a hard-hitting defensive identity and the vaunted "Legion of Boom" secondary.

Of course, the 49ers are only going to sign Sherman if they're satisfied with his health and there's no guarantee that's going to happen.

While T.J. Carrie was the best cornerback the team had last season, he comes into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent. Also pursuing Sherman are the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions. 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. The 49ers are a rapidly improving team with plenty of cap space.

The Bucs are certainly in need of cornerback help.

Sherman led the league in interceptions in 2013 and has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times.
