Richard Sherman says he picked 49ers because he's 'vengeful'

John Lynch 49ers want culture fits not just'splashy names in free agency John Lynch 49ers want culture fits not just'splashy names in free agency

Over the weekend, the Detroit Lions expressed strong interest in released All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman before he ended up signing with the San Francisco 49ers.

"I'm vengeful in that way", Sherman said.

Not only is that a foolish thing anyway, the Seahawks released the cornerback.

"I love the fan base to death, and I loved playing there". The 2017 season was a hard one for the 31-year-old Cromartie, who didn't have an interception and was suspended for one game by then-coach Ben McAdoo for leaving practice without permission.

The Legion of Boom is dead as we know it and to add insult to injury for Seattle, the arch-rival 49ers leapt headfirst into free agency and signed the face of that former dynastic defense, cornerback Richard Sherman. They let me go.

Shead tore his ACL in Seattle's playoff loss to the Falcons in 2017 and only played in two games previous year. The franchises square off twice per season, and Sherman will be on the opposite sideline this year. "I didn't abandon anybody". In fact, San Francisco is allegedly putting a three-year offer on the table provided that Sherman can prove that he is healthy enough to keep competing on the team. The contract has $18 million tied to per-game roster bonuses and incentives. And I am absolutely ecstatic (read my article on why the 49ers should sign him here). Another Pro Bowl in 2018 will make his $8 million of his 2019 salary guaranteed. I think he felt, 'If I'm going anywhere, I want to play for [Patriots coach] Bill Belichick or [Rams defensive coordinator] Wade Phillips.' I talked to the Broncos at the scouting combine in Indy about it, and I thought we had a deal.

Sherman noted he'll be well-compensated if he plays as well as he has throughout a seven-year career that includes four Pro Bowls.
