Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Richard Sherman

Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Richard Sherman

It didn't take long for the San Francisco 49ers to reach out to the newly available Richard Sherman.

Sherman's release was a cost-cutting move.

NFL Network also noted that Sherman "has a strong affinity for the West Coast", and San Francisco is close to Stanford, where Sherman went to college.

Still, the Patriots would be well-served to explore the possibility of bringing Sherman into the fold.

Let's ignore the dislike many Niners fans probably have for Sherman for a moment and explore the other question.

Sherman turns 30 on March 30. He tore his Achilles tendon in November. Condotta says that the team was interested in trying to get Sherman to agree to a pay cut but that he "balked" at such a proposal.

The 29-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his National Football League career with the Seahawks, including their Super Bowl winning season of 2013. He had surgery on his left Achilles to remove bone spurs in January. The team has a talented corner in Darius Slay. Health will surely play a role in the type of contract Sherman receives in free agency. Last year's starter Brent Grimes is also a free agent though the Bucs have expressed interest in re-signing him. Niners general manager John Lynch has plenty of salary-cap space to potentially sign Sherman - roughly $70 million, according to Over The Cap.

Add cornerback to the Carolina Panthers' list of offseason needs after Friday's news that they're trading third-year CB Daryl Worley to the Philadelphia Eagles for wideout Torrey Smith. Prior to the injury, the 5-time Pro Bowler had never missed a game.
