According to Sherman, a return to the 49ers isn’t out of the cards at this time. He’s also spoken with the Saints, Seahawks and Raiders about a potential deal.
There hasn’t been a ton of buzz surrounding Sherman so far. The Saints were linked to him early in free agency and Sherman said previously that he wouldn’t rule out a return to the Seahawks.
Sherman had previously told ESPN that he plans to play until he is 35, and doesn’t rule out a potential switch to safety at the end of his career.
Sherman, 33, 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’s in the final year of the deal and is set to earn a base salary of $8,000,000 this season.
In 2020, Sherman appeared in five games for the 49ers and recorded 18 tackles, one interception, and a pass defense.
