Richard Sherman said Friday that he had been released by the Seahawks

Sherman, for his part, says he wants to play for a contender, and the 49ers could be one of the NFL's up-and-coming teams after winning its last five games behind QB wunderkind Jimmy Garoppolo. 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.

He's currrently meeting with the San Francisco 49ers' brass and will undergo a physical with the team. For one, he would get to play the Seahawks twice a year.

The Seahawks officially announced the move Friday and thanked Sherman in a statement that read: "Thank you for helping win championships, shape our culture and define success in Seattle".

Per Anderson, Sherman said he will start running on a treadmill next week.

Kristen Wiig To Join Cast Of 'Wonder Woman'
We noticed some chatter about Kristen Wiig ( Bridesmaids ) possibly signing on for a major role in the sequel to Wonder Woman . Director Patty Jenkins confirmed the news on Twitter and said she 'can't wait to finally work with one of my favourites'.

Sherman was due $13 million for the 2018 season and his release gives Seattle a salary cap savings of about $11 million.

Sherman is recovering from two separate surgeries on his left and right Achilles tendons. If the 49ers sign Sherman, it's the strongest sign yet that the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry is back in a big way.

NFL Network also noted that Sherman "has a strong affinity for the West Coast", and San Francisco is close to Stanford, where Sherman went to college. That could go to bringing in a player like Sherman, though all that would change if the team inks Johnson, who appears to be their main target this free agency season.

Sherman, if healthy, could be an immediate starter in a 49ers scheme that resembles the Seahawks' version under 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, a former Seahawks assistant.
