Free agent cornerback Richard Sherman may be heading back to Seattle.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told reporters today that he has talked to Sherman “quite a few times” this offseason about the possibility of Sherman signing with the Seahawks.

Sherman has said he thought he’d sign with someone after the draft, so with the draft wrapping up, now is the time to keep an eye on which teams are showing interest in Sherman.

As we noted the last time talk of Sherman returning to Seattle came up, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and Sherman reportedly had a strained relationship the last time they played together. It’s unclear how Wilson would feel about Sherman returning, but if Carroll wants Sherman back, he’ll be back.

A 2011 fifth-round pick of the Seahawks, Sherman played seven years in Seattle before spending the last three years in San Francisco.

  1. What a crock. Yip Yap has lost three steps since he left his jock on the field during the Snoopy Bowl in the fourth quarter. This clown is great at cashing checks his body cannot earn.

  2. This could be a really good win/win for everyone. It starts with an attitude Sherman brings and could end with having a quality Vet to help bring the young guys along.

  3. Remember when Pete and john shipped off the handful of professional malcontents known as the “legion of boom”? Richard Sherman,Earl Thomas, Brandon Browner and Michael Bennett. Why in the world would you bring back a clearly declining headache like Richard Sherman?

  4. Should have went last year. He packed it in and didn’t play once he wasn’t on a contender

    Remember when Pete and john shipped off the handful of professional malcontents known as the “legion of boom”? Richard Sherman,Earl Thomas, Brandon Browner and Michael Bennett. Why in the world would you bring back a clearly declining headache like Richard Sherman? —————————————————————————————————— First of all Pete didn’t shipped any of these guys off. Second, Michael Bennett was never part of the LOB. Lastly, if you’re going to state something as a fact please check said facts before posting baloney for lunch.

  6. Waste of money – best days are past him. Hall of Fame talent, but guy cannit stay healthy.

  7. I hate it when folks make a statement without facts to back it up. Well here are some facts: Fact- Yes he was injured for much of last year like many players throughout the NFL.
    Fact- In 2019 he had 61 tackles (second most in his career) with 11 passes defended and 3 interceptions. IMO I would say that is a pretty good year.

    Fact- Next time you say a player is done or not good anymore look up the facts before typing.

  8. If he agrees (on minimum veterans Pay) to come back & use #25, I’m okay with that. I have his Jersey & haven’t worn it for quite awhile.

  9. I think he is still a better than above average cornerback..a lot better than the ones that left to go elsewhere..go hawks !!

  10. He is definitely not the same guy he was before……… but When healthy you could do a lot worse. Plus he brings brilliant leadership. Seriously never thought the day would come I typed those words lol

  11. Sherman was never very good without Earl Thomas back there helping him. I distinctly remember Sherman struggling when Earl went down

  12. Sherman has great technique and can help the rookies along, but he’s too slow. HE got burned a a lot of deep passes last year and it will only be worse.

    As a Niners fan, I hope that Seattle picks him up.

  13. Are you really surprised with this story?
    Sherm signs with the Seahawks 4 days from now.

  14. It would be a nice reunion, but they really need to sign K.J. Wright first. Really, K.J. should be their top priority.
