Richard Sherman Update By: Stephen Siracusa

Updated: March 9, 2018

The Seattle Seahawks have informed perennial Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman that he will be released to test the market.
The eighth year veteran confirmed the news on Friday. The move was expected after Seattle’s efforts to trade Sherman was proved unsuccessful.
The Seahawks have been working to clear salary-cap space in advance of next week’s free-agency signing period in hope to make some big moves,
which begins Wednesday 3/14/18. This comes in the midst of an off-season overhaul, which has featured replacing their offensive coordinator,
defensive coordinator and offensive line coach.
The 29-year-old posted statistics on Twitter to increase his chances to land a contract on Friday with a new team, showing that he leads the
league in several major statistical categories since entering the league in 2011.
