Cornerback Richard Sherman is rumored to have been traded from the Seattle Seahawks and will be patrolling the secondary in a different NFL stadium come the 2018 regular season. Where that destination might be is, as yet, unknown.
According to a 2017 report by ESPN’s Todd Archer, Sherman is a pending free agent. “Sherman is set to make $11.4 million this year and $11 million in 2018 before he becomes a free agent,” the outlet reported.
According to athletic contract website Spotrac, Sherman is coming into the final year of a four-year, $56 million contract that carries an average annual value of $14 million. For the 2018 season, he’s due to be paid $11 million in base salary and a $2.2 million signing bonus by the Seahawks, or any potential suitors looking to gain the rights to his services.
Sherman’s current deal includes $40 million in guaranteed money.
