NFL Notes: Richard Sherman, Chargers, Cowboys, Eagles

Richard Sherman

Seahawks GM John Schneider told reporters on Monday that they’ve “kind of moved past” the possibility of trading CB Richard Sherman.

Right now we’ve kind of moved past it,” Schneider said, via Stephen Cohen of SeattlePI.com. “If someone calls and goes crazy with something, we’ll discuss it.

Schneider also explained that they’re not just going to give Sherman away when he’s one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL.

He’s one of the top cornerbacks in the league,” Schneider said, per Curtis Crabtree. “You don’t just give him away, you know.”

Eagles

Eagles veteran S Malcolm Jenkins told reporters on Monday that he’s well aware of how the NFL works and that no player is irreplaceable.

Jenkins also mentioned that the Saints have been interested in bringing him back, which explains the trade rumors from earlier this offseason.

“I’ve been in the game long enough to know that there’s no such thing as an irreplaceable player, just depending on what that price tag is,” said Jenkins, via PhillyVoice.com. “I know the Saints have been active in trying to get me back in that building. That’s before those trade rumors, probably during the season. The fact that conversations are being had surrounding me doesn’t bother me because I understand the business.

“Howie and I talked and he (said) that he wanted me to be a part of what we’re doing here. He wants me to be an Eagle. They need the leadership and what I bring to the field, and I understand everything, so I’m good.”
