Report: Saints among teams interested in Richard Sherman

While there was one veteran head coach who engaged in some pretty clear tampering with Richard Sherman several weeks ago, another may actually land the cornerback.

According to NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero, the Saints are among the teams expressing interest in Sherman. Part of the appeal for Sherman would be reuniting with Kris Richard. He was Sherman’s position coach from 2011-2014, and then his defensive coordinator from 2015-2017 with the Seahawks.

Sherman, who turns 33 at the end of the month, played just five games in 2020 due to various injuries. He recorded one interception and one pass defensed. He appeared in 14 contests in 2018 and 15 in 2019 with San Francisco.

Sherman’s made the Pro Bowl five times — four with the Seahawks and once with the 49ers.

The Saints have a need at cornerback after releasing Janoris Jenkins to create cap space.

  1. Love all the haters asking how the Saints are going to get players. Yet, we do. Every time.

  2. They need some cap space to get him, but they released Janoris Jenkins to create that cap space and they now have a need for a replacement. I suppose the cattle, not just the grass, is better on the other side.

  3. I would have never thought this.

    The Saints are on the other side of Drew Brees….who was an absolute gamble when they signed him. It paid enormous dividends….but…only (1) One Superbowl tells a different story….so the Saints did not get players or at least the right players. Welcome to the post Brees era. It will not be kind to you all Saints fans..get use to it Who Dey Who Dey without Drew Brees?
