Free agent Richard Sherman to meet with San Francisco 49ers today


On Friday, the Seattle Seahawks released Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman, and many teams are interested in bringing in his services.

Richard Sherman hasn't been a free agent for 24 hours, but already he has a long list of suitors, including the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to the report, the 49ers want to make sure that Sherman is healing from his ruptured Achilles and if both teams are pleased, they will try to get a contract completed. The team followed up with a thank you note for Sherman's "immeasurable impact over the years".

Drafted in 2011, Sherman is a free agent for the first time in his career.

Sherman reportedly will visit the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday, in what will be the first - and potential last stop - on his search for a new home. NFL.com reported that Sherman will take a physical with the 49ers Saturday to determine where he is in his recovery from an Achilles tendon injury suffered on November 9 against Arizona, a game that it appears will turn out to have been Sherman's last in a Seattle uniform.




Sherman is coming off season-ending Achilles surgery and also recently underwent a cleanup on his other Achilles. But if a report from ESPN's Josina Anderson is to be believed, New England might not even kick the tires on the four-time All-Pro.

If he joined the 49ers, Sherman would also be reunited with his partner for one of the most famous plays in Seattle sports history - Malcolm Smith.

Sherman is also expected to undergo a physical and meet with team doctors to talk about the Achilles tendon he tore past year, NFL Network reported.

The talented, brash defender has been one of the faces of a team that appeared in two Super Bowls and won one, success built on a hard-hitting defensive identity and the vaunted "Legion of Boom" secondary. In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.
