Cornerback Richard Sherman Agrees To 3-Year Deal With San Francisco 49ers

Cornerback Richard Sherman agreed to a three-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, one day after being released by the Seattle Seahawks. Sherman confirmed in a text message that he agreed to the contract on Saturday after spending the day meeting with the team. Reports are stating the deal is worth up to $39.15 million.  San Francisco hopes Sherman make an impact even though he is coming off an Achilles tendon injury that cost him half of the 2017 season. Sherman also had a cleanup surgery on his opposite ankle during the offseason. Sherman became a star in Seattle; his best seasons came in 2013 and 2014, when Seattle made two Super Bowl appearances, and he has 32 interceptions. Sherman was also one of the best cornerbacks over the past three seasons, ranking second in the NFL by allowing just 49.2 percent of passes against him to be caught.
