49ers to meet with Richard Sherman

2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Richard Sherman

2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Richard Sherman

The scheduled meeting comes after Sherman had dinner Friday night with San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, Rapoport reported.

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.

Sherman said last month at the Seattle Sports Star awards that he hoped to negotiate a new deal with the Seahawks but said he was fine with the idea that he might have to move on.

Sherman is also expected to undergo a physical and meet with team doctors to talk about the Achilles tendon he tore a year ago, NFL Network reported. After he was cut on Friday, the former Seahawks corner, who turns 30 on March 30, shared some statistics to prove that he's not "slowin' down".

Sherman is obviously familiar with the Bay Area, having played five years at Stanford. Sherman expects to be ready for the regular season but could be limit in August for training camp and parts of the preseason.

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

"I want to go to a contender", Sherman said.

San Francisco started the offseason with a $137.5 million pact with impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo. Also pursuing Sherman are the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions. He's very familiar to defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who was an assistant with the Seahawks from 2011-2013. The team would be best served to bring him back as a No. 3 cornerback, but they need someone to fill in the second starting spot with Conley in 2018. The three-time All-Pro has recorded 32 interceptions and 99 passes defensed in 105 career games.
