NFL Notes: Richard Sherman, 49ers, Trumaine Johnson, Giants

     

Richard Sherman

Multiple league sources tell Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk that the reported three-year, $39 million contract CB Richard Sherman signed with the 49ers Saturday night is likely to end up being “a mirage.

  • Jeff Howe reports that the Patriots never reached out to Sherman about coming to New England after he was released by the Seahawks.
  • Howe says that Sherman wants to play with Tom Brady, but the 49ers were able to close the deal after they presented him a heck of an offer yesterday.
  • According to Adam Schefter, Sherman and the 49ers both expect him to be ready for the start of training camp this summer, despite his Achilles injury.
  • Jason La Canfora heard that the Seahawks rejected a potential trade that could have sent Sherman to the Dolphins for WR Jarvis Landry last year.
