Seahawks Trying to Deal Richard Sherman, But He’ll Only Join a Contender
For a couple weeks now, we’ve heard that the Seahawks were quietly, then openly, shopping CB Richard Sherman around to interested teams. The news seemed far-fetched initially, but it’s happening.
While Sherman doesn’t have a no-trade clause like the NBA’s Carmelo Anthony, he does have the right to not cooperate or even try to obstruct a trade to a team he doesn’t want to join. For those reasons, it’s being said that Sherman will agree to be dealt, but only to a contender.
Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald said, “He wants to play in Super Bowls or have a chance to compete in Super Bowls, so he has some degree of leverage as to where this train goes.”
It’s widely believed that a deal is unlikely to get done, but that’s not going to stop the talks from happening.
But still…it’s April, and football reporters gotta talk about something, right?
