This opens a three-week window of time for the Patriots to activate him from injured reserve and add him to their 53-man roster.

Sherman, 32, is a former fifth-round pick of the Seahawks back in 2011. He was entering the final of his five-year, $58.789 million contract when the Seahawks released him during the 2018 offseason.

The 49ers signed him to a three-year, $39.15 million contract. He is entering the final year of the deal and is set to earn a base salary of $8,000,000 this season. 

In 2019, Sherman appeared in 15 games and recorded 61 total tackles, two tackles for loss, three interceptions, 11 pass defenses, and scored one defensive touchdown.
