According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Richard Sherman “has told teammates goodbye over the last 24 hours” and says he won’t be on the Seattle Seahawks in 2018.
This is interesting as Michael Bennett is now headed to Philadelphia. The Seahawks will likely play this year without Cliff Avril or Kam Chancellor and now Sherman is reportedly leaving? Yes, it’s time to press the panic button in Seattle.
Rapoport’s colleague, Tom Pelissero, reports Sherman will meet with GM John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll on Wednesday to “discuss his future.” This all started with a cryptic tweet from teammate CB Jeremy Lane, suggesting Sherman was leaving the team. The Seahawks can save $11 million in cap space by cutting Sherman, who is entering the final year of his deal.
