Richard Sherman Signs With 49ers: "I'm Vengeful In That Way"

12 March 2018

A report published Monday says the Seahawks had a right-of-first refusal on any contract offered Richard Sherman, and that Seattle declined to match the deal he got from the 49ers.

Richard Sherman officially has gone to the other side.

During an interview with KIRO-AM, Sherman stated that the Seahawks were set to release him and thus, break apart what has been a vaunted defense for the Seahawks since 2012. However, of note, Sherman told ESPN's Josina Anderson that the deal is worth "up to $39.15 million".

It was the incentives in the deal that made the 49ers stand out as a destination for Sherman.

"I'm vengeful that way ... vengeful", Sherman said in an interview with Peter King of the MMQB.

Givenchy dead: French fashion designer dies at 91
Famed French fashion designer Hubert de Givenchy has died at age 91, the couture house bearing his name confirms. Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Julien McDonald and Riccardo Tisci have taken control of Givenchy's output.

"Sherman called Detroit coach Matt Patricia and GM Bob Quinn", King wrote, "incentive package too rich for Detroit's blood".

When that was relayed to Sherman, he paused for a second.

"I don't think any agent in the business could have done a better job of negotiating this contract", the headstrong Sherman said.

That's what it sounded like. "As long as I'm content with what I'm making, nothing else matters to me".

"Vengeful", Sherman said. "I love the fan base to death, and I loved playing there". It was such a great opportunity.

Will Android Wear Soon be Rebranded as Wear OS?
However, the tipster who got to see this change has only been able to witness this change only in the incognito mode. GOOGLE APPEARS to be planning to rebrand its wearables operating system Android Wear as Wear OS in a future update.

"Would I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance?" People are out there burning my jersey.

Before that happens, though, let's squeeze in one more mock draft.

That Detroit wouldn't be willing to pony up for that puts a slight (but strong) limit on how far they're willing to go to upgrade the No. 2 cornerback position. "I didn't abandon anybody". Sherman now leads the National Football League in interceptions since he was drafted in 2011 and his 99 pass deflections also leads the entire NFL.

Sherman, however, suffered a ruptured Achilles last fall, and whether he'll be able to return to top form is unknown. The 49ers have skin in the game. "Now, if I play the way I know I'm capable of playing, I know I'm going to get paid".

While it's unknown exactly the paycut Seattle wanted Sherman to take, it's surely less than $10 million for the 2018 season. If he plays 90 percent of San Francisco's snaps and gets selected to the Pro Bowl-no sure thing, obviously, but achievable-the big numbers are waiting. It becomes fully guaranteed on April 1, 2019. In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year. This situation was fascinating from all angles, from Sherman's autonomous representation to 49ers general manager John Lynch's direct sales pitch.
