'Vengeful' Richard Sherman relishes playing Seahawks twice a year

'Vengeful' Richard Sherman relishes playing Seahawks twice a year

Saleh was a former defensive assistant with the Seahawks.

Burning Richard Sherman jerseys are a thing among Seahawks fans.

Shead's free-agent status had been in question after he spent all but two games of the past season on the physically unable to perform list while working his way back from a torn ACL.

That's due to a clause in the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement that states that players not activated off the Physically Unable to Perform List until after the sixth game of the season in the final year of their contract must have their contracts tolled (Shead was not activated until December 23).

The tolling rule applies to players who, in the final season of their contract, remain on PUP as of their team's sixth regular-season game. Ego and pride will prevent him from ever calling it was it is: A substandard deal, one that any good, experienced agent could have improved upon easily and quickly.

The shutdown cornerback will stay in the NFC West after inking a three-year deal with the 49ers worth up to $39 million, with a $5m signing bonus.

Only time will tell what the former Seattle Seahawks standout has left in the tank. But general manager John Schneider had already assured Shead that he would be an unrestricted free agent. "But it's our position, the NFL Players Association's position and the Seattle Seahawks' position that it does not toll". The Seahawks released him and declined the opportunity to match the 49ers' offer. "So it's not like they don't want him to come back". He had a visit scheduled with Detroit this week, per NFL Network.

So when Sherman speaks, people listen, and that is something the 49ers will have to adjust to in a locker room that grew admirably tight amid last season's adversity (0-9 start) and eventual triumph (5-0 finish).

Justin Coleman, who was the team's starting nickel past year, is a restricted free agent and it is expected the Seahawks will tender him to keep him in the fold.

With Chancellor's football future in jeopardy because of a career-threatening neck injury, the Seahawks have approached Shead about possibly playing strong safety next season.

A lot of players may lack the knowledge necessary to act as their own agents, but at a potential savings of millions of dollars when it comes time to negotiate contracts with teams, they may now find it worthwhile to learn. "So we'll see what happens". We had a clause in a bunch of our contracts saying players got an incentive for making the Pro Bowl, even if they were medically excused from playing in the Pro Bowl. "I think I'm going to walk right in and I'm just going to do exactly what I need to do and what's going to be asked of me, where I need to be".
