According to somebody who was at the restaurant, Shanahan dined with Sherman and his wife at Nick's Next Door restaurant in Los Gatos tonight. He then had a separate surgery to clean bone spurs out of his left Achilles last month. Sherman is also somewhat familiar with the scheme run by 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh. Now he may play against the Seahawks twice a year, with the 49ers.
He had one season remaining on a four-year, $56 million extension he signed in 2014 after the Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII.
But Sherman said at the Sports Star awards he thought he would be ready for the beginning of mini-camp.
If his recovery is going well they will try to get a contract done.
Will Richard Sherman's foray into free agency be brief?
While T.J. Carrie was the best cornerback the team had last season, he comes into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
Richard Sherman joining the Detroit Lions' secondary absolutely makes sense as pairing him with All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay and veteran safety Glover Quin would instantly make the Motor City a No-Fly zone. The Seahawks will add $11 million in salary cap space for 2018 with his departure. Maybe they were just asking to ask-after all, Quinn complained about not being able to interview troubled 2017 draft prospect Joe Mixon at the combine, even though the Lions were nearly certainly not going to draft him.
