Richard Sherman Visiting 49ers With 'Real Chance' He Signs

Although there's some belief that a deal could get done with the 49ers, there's also a chance that the two sides won't agree to anything and Sherman's free agency tour will continue. Sherman calls his free agency an "ongoing process".

Sherman was in Las Vegas for NFL Players Association meetings until Friday afternoon but is thought to have then traveled to the Bay Area for his meeting with the 49ers. Or perhaps it's Sherman, a rangy 6-foot-3 cornerback who looks to recapture his top form after tearing his right Achilles tendon in November. On March 1, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expected Sherman to remain in walking boot for a few more weeks.

In seven seasons with the Seahawks, Sherman was named to four Pro Bowls and, always most importantly, an incredible three First-Team All-Pro selections. Sherman expects to be ready for the regular season but could be limit in August for training camp and parts of the preseason. It's hard to say at this point what the Seahawks team will look like next year, though it's worth pointing out that Seattle still has Russell Wilson, and a franchise quarterback is a great starting point for any National Football League team looking to rebuild. While that still leaves room for at least one veteran, it would be odd for Detroit to go for a big-money veteran cornerback when there are much bigger needs elsewhere.

General manager John Lynch recently noted it doesn't take a "savant" to see the 49ers need cornerbacks.

The cost-cutting moves will give the Seahawks an estimated $38 million in available salary cap space - they had $13 million at the beginning of the week.

The Seahawks could also re-sign DeShawn Shead, who like Maxwell is also an unrestricted free agent.
