Richard Sherman, San Francisco 49ers to meet today

Richard Sherman was released by the Seahawks on Friday, but his time in free agency may be brief. "This is just another chapter in the journey".

Sherman is now an unrestricted free agent and free to negotiate and sign with another team.

Sherman, who turns 30 later this month, was released after seven seasons in Seattle.

The 49ers want to make sure Sherman is healing from his injuries and if both sides are pleased with the meeting, they will try to get a contract done, sources tell Schefter.

State officials to give statement on fatal shooting of Clinton police officer
The police officers were shot at when they entered the home, the Missouri State Highway Patrol said. Clinton Police Officer Ryan Morton was killed in the line of duty after responding to a 911 call.

But add in all the context, and Josina Anderson's report that the Lions reached out to Sherman and expressed preliminary interest is a bit of a head-scratcher.

However, this isn't a done deal as Sherman is coming off of two surgeries on a torn Achilles tendon - which happened just in November - and it is now unknown what type of an asking price Sherman is presenting.

If he joined the 49ers, Sherman would also be reunited with his partner for one of the most famous plays in Seattle sports history - Malcolm Smith. While that still leaves room for at least one veteran, it would be odd for Detroit to go for a big-money veteran cornerback when there are much bigger needs elsewhere.

If healthy, Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who excels in physical man-to-man coverage, would be an ideal fit for the 49ers' 4-3 defense. Sherman went viral in January 2014 for using that same quote, which comes from Game of Thrones. Saleh has implemented a defensive system that is similar to the Seahawks. In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.
