Amazon is growing its presence with the NFL and is the exclusive home for Thursday Night Football starting this season. They need on-air talent and have been linked to a number of high-profile names this offseason. 

Rapoport adds Sherman will stay in shape for a potential NFL opportunity but at this point it does seem like his future may be brighter in broadcasting than it is as a player. 

Sherman, 34, 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 and he was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent in 2021 before signing a one-year, $2.25 million deal with the Buccaneers.

In 2021, Sherman appeared in five games for the Buccaneers and recorded 11 tackles, one interception and one fumble recovery.

We have him listed in our Top 100 Available Free Agents list.
