Richard Sherman telling teammates goodbye, report says

Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports that Sherman is scheduled to talk with head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider Wednesday to discuss his future. Today's news is significant for the NFC West because the Seahawks have consistently been one of the best teams within the division. Seattle drafted the cornerback in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Stanford. Following the play, Sherman was seen grabbing at his ankle and then limping on the sideline.

Not to mention, if a team could land Sherman at a cheaper price for the 2018 season, there's no question he would be worth the risk for a handful of potential suitors. He has been selected to four Pro Bowls and is a three-time first-team All-Pro. Yes, there are some concerns over Sherman's status for 2018 after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon, but also keep in mind that just last month, his recovery appeared to be ahead of schedule.

The strongest indications that Sherman's departure from the Seahawks is imminent have come from teammates on social media. The move would be akin to the Pats signing Darrelle Revis after he was released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2014.

What the hell is going on in Seattle?

Bennett, a nine-year veteran, has registered 293 combined tackles, 54 sacks, four passes defensed, and eight forced fumbles over his career. And last week, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reported that a source says Sherman is still "receptive to the idea" of joining the Patriots via trade or free agency.
