Richard Sherman's New Contract Has Seahawk Fans BURNING Jerseys!

Rams rivalry with 49ers gets more interesting thanks to Sherman

That may also have been something the Seahawks wanted to avoid, undoubtedly preferring to negotiate their own longer-term deal with Sherman than merely matching what he had agreed to with the 49ers. Sherman's deal, according to ProFootballTalk, comes with a full base value of $21.15 million, guarantees $3 million at signing and probably won't come close to $40 million when it's all said and done.

Sherman joined Bay Area media on Monday morning, via a conference call, and there were certainly some interesting pointers.

"(NBC producers) were like, 'Eat the turkey, '" Sherman recalled. If you brought in Malcom Butler or somebody else, that would be hard to do. Honestly we were just enjoying the moment.

105 games out of 112 played. "I think he is a heck of a player". "But people can take it how they want to".

But it's clear the Seahawks are a team in transition, although it also remains to be seen how significant this makeover will be.

Even after signing Sherman and extending Garoppolo this offseason, the 49ers have more than $50m in salary cap space to continue adding talent.

There's no guarantee the Patriots would have netted Sherman if they had pursued him.

"That had a huge part in it", Sherman told the San Jose Mercury News' Daniel Brown.

Sherman shouted. "When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you gonna get!"

"What I saw from him was poise, I saw leadership, I saw the respect from his teammates, and I saw a command of the offense, and he'd only been there a few weeks".

Coverage of his early round will be on Golf Channel, while the conclusion will shift to NBC for a finish right around 6 p.m. Reed drew level with Casey after a birdie on 14 but let slip the opportunity to tie his English rival in bogeying the last.

Sherman's contract is very low-risk for the 49ers. "I have love and appreciation for the years I spent there". Which is remarkable, given that further reporting on Sherman's deal disclosed it was team-friendly and amounted to a one-year deal the 49ers could escape if Sherman's injury recovery didn't go well. If he's named an All-Pro, which is slightly more hard then getting voted to the Pro Bowl, then Sherman will earn another $2 million.

Sherman addressed the jersey burning in a conversation with Peter King. "It will take some getting used to for me". Sure, he talked a lot of trash, especially to Michael Crabtree. "I admit it's kinda weird having to cheer for you now", wrote one, Candle STAC Park.

That's where the good news for Sherman ends.

Sherman played for Seahawks for seven seasons.

The most enduring image of Sherman for 49ers fans, though, is from a Thanksgiving game at Levi's Stadium in 2014. He had a personal beef with Jim Harbaugh dating back to their shared days at Stanford, and he and the 49ers coach became NFC West antagonists.

Sherman became a star in Seattle, bringing a brash attitude and willingness to speak out on any topic to go along with his stellar play.

Oh, how a quarterback can change everything. "We said to him, 'There are some realities here where you're going to have to give.' And he got it". We worked really hard. But outside of that, some of the concepts were tough to stop.

Sherman's ability to mentor a young secondary is a key component to his arrival.

Additionally, there's a per-game 46-man roster bonus of $2 million ($125,000 per game); a workout bonus of $50,000, a playing time incentive (90 percent of the team's defensive snaps) of $1 million; a Pro Bowl incentive of $1 million and first- or second-team All-Pro, $2 million.
