The chances of Sherman joining a team like the Rams after all of the years with the Seahawks sounds insane to say out loud, but also, how much would Sherman love to face his former team twice a year?
Sherman said at the Seattle Sports Awards last month that he is now acting as his own agent and expected to meet with Carroll and Schneider at some point to discuss his future.
However, a tweet from ESPN's Josina Anderson indicated that Sherman denied the reports.
Is Richard Sherman parting ways with the Seahawks? Even Jeremy Lane posted a message on Twitter over his "heart hurting" about No. 25, making it seem clear that it's only a matter of time before the Seahawks announce their plans to move on, whether it ends up coming through a trade or release.
In spite of that, Sherman's mother Beverly posted to her Facebook page on Wednesday saying she's "devastated to know" that Sherman will "no longer be a Seahawk". Injuries to Sherman, safety Kam Chancellor, and defensive end Cliff Avril left critics to question if the "Legion of Boom" might be over.
Sherman has a $11 million base salary and a $13.2 million cap hit in 2018.
Last season, Sherman played in just nine games before tearing his Achilles.
Sherman's future has been uncertain since a year ago when the team acknowledged it would consider trading Sherman, who had undergone a rocky 2016 season that included two on-field blowups aimed at coaches and for a while deciding he would not speak to local reporters (he later rescinded that and talked to all reporters throughout the 2017 season).
