Richard Sherman thinks a “very nice deal” could be close

As the NFL Draft approaches, there’s other big business going on, and the Seahawks may be inching closer to their second big secondary deal of the spring.

According to Tom Pelissero of USA Today, Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said he didn’t think he and the team were far apart on a “very nice deal.”

The Seahawks have also scheduled a press conference for this afternoon, without stating the reason.

While the initial reports that Sherman was close to a new contract were premature, the goal was to finish a deal before the draft, which starts in around 30 hours.

“They may go past the draft. They may not,” he said of the talks.

The former fifth-round pick figures to make him among the, if not the highest-paid corners in the league when the contract is complete. Coupled with the big extension for safety Earl Thomas, and the Seahawks will have had a big offseason before the draft begins.

  1. “The Seahawks have also scheduled a press conference for this afternoon, without stating the reason.”

    Or rather, without stating the obvious…

  2. His numbers don’t lie, if you throw the ball on his side of the field he gets picks or deflections. True he is in a great secondary but by far he has the numbers to show he has been the best cornerback in the league in the last three years. $$ earned.

  3. It doesn’t do any good to troll your own teams article.. FYI. I just pray its a reasonable deal.. In my opinion, no player other than a QB is worth Revis money.

  4. Every single one of you haters would love him on your team. I also really wish, as a Seahawks fan since 1982, that some, or heck, all of you could see and hear him on other things. He is a class guy in every way. He made a mistake calling out a guy that clowned his mother, amongst other things, and he has since said he shouldn’t have done that. He is a great guy, and deserves what he has coming to him. Please stop hating, you look childish.

  5. As a Seahawks fan this may sound like heresy but here goes:

    What if Seattle develops a rock solid defense for years and elects to let Russell Wilson go in a few years?

    Take a chance on winning big with another QB over center?

    49ers had Smith and let him go and now are winning with solid defense and Kapaernick? And depending on how you think he may not be a super star QB???

    Does it make sense or is it stupid to think that Seattle might want to parcel Russell Wilson out to some other team for whatever draft picks they can get and then start with a new QB?

  6. Decent football player, despicable human being.
    His attitude brings the entire franchise down. Many across the nation hate the Seahawks solely because of him.

  7. Calling it now… Will get payday, play will decline, and he will finally go away.

  8. “Despicable”? Really?

    I do not think that word means what you think it means.
