Richard Sherman reveals 'vengeful' 49ers signing

Richard Sherman reveals 'vengeful' 49ers signing”

That Detroit wouldn't be willing to pony up for that puts a slight (but strong) limit on how far they're willing to go to upgrade the No. 2 cornerback position.

Sherman signed a highly incentivized three-year contract that could be worth more than $39 million if he appears in every game, plays 90 percent of the defensive snaps and is named to the Pro-Bowl and All-Pro teams. "I didn't abandon anybody".

Among the reasons Richard Sherman agreed to join the 49ers a day after being released by the Seahawks was the chance to get back at his former team.

The story reveals that after hammering out the details, Sherman called the Raiders and Lions - two other teams he had expected to visit after being released by the Seahawks on Friday - as well as the Seahawks. Sherman didn't force his way out of Seattle. Sherman called Oakland GM Reggie McKenzie, who said he wasn't going to have the cap money to compete for him.

Lynch said: "I promise you, we won't throw it this time".

While percentages that agents are paid is largely not regulated, and depends on the contract between each athlete and their agent, it can amount to millions of dollars for the athletes who are able to earn the most lucrative deals. That seems likely, assuming Sherman has been correct in saying he thinks he'll be fully healed by the summer.

Sherman then celebrated a Thanksgiving night win in a road game against the 49ers the following season by eating a turkey leg on the 50-yard line. The 49ers have skin in the game. They refused and will now have to look at Sherman on the opposite sideline at least twice in 2018.

The base value of Sherman's deal is $21.15 million ($7 million guaranteed), with another $18 million tied to roster bonuses and incentives, per Pro Football Talk. It becomes fully guaranteed on April 1, 2019. San Francisco hopes he can make a big impact even as he turns 30 later this month and is coming off an Achilles tendon injury that cost him half of the 2017 season.

Sherman told The MMQB that the contract contains guarantees that roll over to the following year if he makes the Pro Bowl.
