2018 free agency: Raiders showing interest in Richard Sherman

Former Seahawks CB Richard Sherman officially signs with 49ers

Should a signing not happen before Sherman leaves Santa Clara, his next visit will reportedly be with the Detroit Lions.

The Seahawks cut Sherman on Friday morning, and the 49ers wasted no time getting in touch: According to The Athletic, Sherman had dinner with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan on Friday night.

Sherman was vocal in his desire to wanting to play for a contending team, and the 49ers are certainly that after finding their franchise quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo last season. Maybe they were just asking to ask-after all, Quinn complained about not being able to interview troubled 2017 draft prospect Joe Mixon at the combine, even though the Lions were nearly certainly not going to draft him.

After linebacker Malcolm Smith, now with the 49ers, intercepted the pass, Sherman gave Kaepernick the choke sign and mockingly extended a handshake to Crabtree.

Sherman was released with a failed physical designation which allows him to be eligible for a $1.15 million injury guarantee if he never plays again.

New $10 bill features Canadian civil rights icon Viola Desmond
The Bank of Canada has hidden an aptly named "Inflation Busters" video game on its website promoting the country's new $10 bill. The new bill is purple in hue and will also be the first banknote in Canada to have a vertical versus a horizontal design.

Sherman told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that "They wanted the financial flexibility going into free agency but expressed that they wanted me to return and will be in contact".

Per Anderson, Sherman said he will start running on a treadmill next week. He leads the National Football League with 32 interceptions since 2011 and is a four-time Pro Bowler.

"I want to go to a contender", Sherman said.

The big injury there is the Achilles tear and that's because coming back from that isn't easy. Smith, who caught Sherman's tip of a Colin Kaepernick pass for a game-clinching interception in the 2014 NFC title game, is under contract with the 49ers through 2021 after signing with them past year.
