San Francisco 49ers: Pros & cons for signing cornerback Richard Sherman

The Raiders are among six other teams showing interest in Sherman, ESPN's Josina Anderson reported.

Sherman, who will turn 30 on March 30, is coming off a season-ending Achilles tear, as well as a surgical procedure on his other Achilles.

The Bucs are certainly in need of cornerback help.

Imagine pondering this thought back in 2014 - the San Francisco 49ers sign cornerback Richard Sherman. Now he may play against the Seahawks twice a year, with the 49ers.

Now, there appears to be a real chance the 49ers are luring in Sherman after the Seattle Seahawks released him on Friday.

Army bomb disposal experts were rushed to the scene of the explosion on the Ballyrobert Road. Police sources had earlier confirmed the woman was not a serving police officer.

Should a signing not happen before Sherman leaves Santa Clara, his next visit will reportedly be with the Detroit Lions. The days of an Achilles tear being an immediate career-ender are long past, but for a cornerback who never had outstanding deep speed-and is less than three weeks from his 30th birthday-it's hard to think he'll be back to top form before the season starts.

The odds of Sherman remaining, though, may not be too high as it's thought he's excited to see what may else be out there, and that if he has to take a pay cut he'd rather do it elsewhere than in Seattle.

After that Sherman-led loss to the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game, the 49ers went into steep decline.

"I guess I'm more ahead of schedule than they thought I was", Sherman said then of his progress in recovering from Achilles surgery. In something that might resemble a worst-nightmare for fans of the #Seattle Seahawks, Sherman might be open to joining one of their rivals. 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 a year ago.
