Free agent CB Sherman to visit 49ers

Free agent CB Sherman to visit 49ers

The Seahawks are likely to release the star cornerback, bringing to an end the Seattle career of one of the most iconic players in team history, if not all of Seattle sports, according to the Times.

Instead, Sherman will be traveling to San Francisco to meet with Jimmy Garoppolo's 49ers. Sherman is also somewhat familiar with the scheme run by 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.

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. Sherman went to high school in Southern California before heading to Stanford for college.

Maybe they were hoping Sherman's age and injury status would flatten his market.

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.

Asked by Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network on Friday what he wants out of a new team, Sherman said: "Looking for a great fit".

The NFL has been a whirlwind of trades and free agency signings recently.

While T.J. Carrie was the best cornerback the team had last season, he comes into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.

Seattle also could re-sign Byron Maxwell, who returned to the Seahawks in November following Sherman's season-ending injury and started the rest of the way at left cornerback. The Seahawks will add $11 million in salary cap space for 2018 with his departure.

"Would I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance?" He leads the National Football League with 32 interceptions since 2011 and is a four-time Pro Bowler.
