Seattle Seahawks officially release CB Richard Sherman

Seattle Seahawks officially release CB Richard Sherman”

The Seattle Seahawks released cornerback Richard Sherman on Friday night and according to Marcus Thompson of The Athletic, the San Francisco 49ers may already by trying to court the seven-year veteran. "For that, you will always be a Hawk!"

However, Sherman is saying that the team wants him to return after he explores free agency, per USA TODAY Sports' Mike Jones.

Even with the news in the past few days that the two sides were set to part ways, it still marks a shocking end to a terrific run for one of the best cover cornerbacks on one of the more dominant defenses in the National Football League the past several seasons. Sherman - who, for what it's worth, serves as his own agent - also has made it seem that he'd be open to a return to the Seahawks, although it's unclear how likely that is as they reboot their roster.

The team said Wednesday as word spread of the meeting that it would have no announcement, but Seahawks defenders Jeremy Lane and Kam Chancellor went online to post tributes to Sherman.

Sherman was released with a failed-physical designation, which allows him to be eligible for a $1.15 million injury guarantee if he never plays again.

This may not be an end for Sherman and the Seahawks, depending on what he finds in free agency.

But Sherman should still have a competitive market, presuming his health holds up.

Sherman turns 30 this month and is coming off a November Achilles tear that ended his streak of 105 consecutive games dating back to when he entered the league in 2011. The Seahawks could look to re-sign defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson or work on safety Earl Thomas' contract. The brash cornerback famously batted a pass from Michael Crabtree on a last-minute touchdown attempt in the 2013 NFC championship game, triumphantly ate turkey at Levi's Field after a Thanksgiving win against the 49ers and otherwise has been a twice-a-year thorn in San Francisco's side since joining the Seahawks in 2011.

The Seahawks could also re-sign DeShawn Shead, who is an unrestricted free agent.

The cost-cutting moves (if you assume Avril will be released) will give the Seahawks an estimated $38 million in available salary-cap space.

If Melvin doesn't re-sign, the Colts will need to bring in at least one solid cornerback in free agency. The move appeared to be building after he met with the team Wednesday.
