NFL Notes: Richard Sherman, Arm Wrestling, Draft, Ravens


Richard Sherman

  • Albert Breer reports that the Patriots’ interest in Seahawks CB Richard Sherman was prior to them signing Stephon Gilmore at the start of free agency and he would be shocked to see them revisit a potential deal this offseason.
  • According to Breer, the Patriots were in the market for a big, long cornerback after losing Logan Ryan, which is why they had interest in Gilmore and Sherman.

Arm Wrestling

  • Ian Rapoport reports that the NFL plans to fine the current NFL players who participated in an arm wrestling event at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino for violating league policy.
  • Steelers OLB James Harrison, Dolphins WR Kenny Stills, 49ers LB NaVorro Bowman and Raiders P Marquette King.
  • Retired RB Marshawn Lynch also took part in the event, but he won’t be fined given that he’s currently on the reserve/retired list.


  • The Steelers have scheduled a pre-draft visit with Minnesota CB Jalen Myrick for this week. (Adam Caplan)
