RICHARD SHERMAN JOINS SAN FRANCISCO 49ER'S
Richard Sherman has agreed to a three-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers worth $39 million plus incentives including a $5 million signing bonus. He spent the bulk of Saturday meeting with 49ers officials before hammering out a deal. The eighth-year veteran doesn’t have an agent, but instead represented himself in negotiations.
In signing with San Francisco, Sherman remains in the NFC West and will face his former team the Seattle Seahawks twice a year. He also reunites with 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, who served as a defensive assistant in Seattle from 2011-13.
