Why are the Detroit Lions interested in Richard Sherman?


Reports Saturday morning indicated it may not take long for Richard Sherman to find a new home after he was released by the Seahawks on Friday. We love you and your unwavering competitiveness, confidence and fierce passion for football and life.

And Condotta noted that money was a big factor in the decision to release Sherman, who is set to make $11 million next season.

He also has had a procedure to clean up bone spurs in his left Achilles. He has said that he plans to be running at full speed some time next month and will be ready to play by training camp.

"I want to go to a contender", Sherman told KIRO 97.3 FM on Friday, a flagship Seattle radio station. The intent of this meeting is for the team to find out the state of Sherman's injuries and if he can provide the team with some value under a new contract.

"He has always been and will always be a Florentine", said the city's archbishop, Cardinal Giuseppe Betori. "I cried many times". It will be the task of those around her to tell her who her father was, Davide, a Man with a capital M.

Shaquill Griffin will return as the starter at right cornerback and the team is expected to tender restricted free agent Justin Coleman to return as the nickel corner.

But maybe Detroit's "preliminary interest" in Sherman signals that they're about to be more active in the veteran cornerback market than we thought. He joined the Packers' medical staff a year ago. Niners general manager John Lynch has plenty of salary-cap space to potentially sign Sherman - roughly $70 million, according to Over The Cap. At that point, if the 49ers like what they see, the team "will try to get a contract done" and there's a "real chance" it will happen, according to ESPN.

It is not yet clear how the four-time All-Pro defensive back will bounce back from his Achilles injury.

He also turned his tongue to players.
