After about a week of speculation, the Seattle Seahawks made it official Friday as they released Richard Sherman.
As one of the faces or the face of the legion of boom, this certainly marks the end of an era in Seattle. The three-time, first-team All-Pro played all seven seasons in Seattle where he had 32 interceptions during that run. Sherman, who’s coming back from a torn Achilles, which he suffered last season turns 30 later this month.
Though despite hitting the big three-o, Sherman, will still draw a ton of interest from teams has he’s by far one of the most intriguing options available.
Yes, he’s not 100 percent yet and also had surgery to remove a bone spur from his other heel earlier this off-season, but his presence alone can help a team. One of the teams that comes to mind as a landing spot will definitely be the New England Patriots
as they kicked the tires last year when Seattle was shopping Sherman. As for the Seahawks, they save $11 million in cap space with this move, but they’ll have a huge hole to fill in that secondary.
