Sherman signs with 49ers

Rams rivalry with 49ers gets more interesting thanks to Sherman

Richard Sherman has revenge on his mind.

Now he has made a decision to join the enemy, signing a three-year contract with the 49ers nearly immediately after being let go by the Seattle Seahawks last Friday. Seattle defeated San Francisco, 23-17. They did lock up defensive tackle Justin Ellis to a three-year deal, but other than that, they appear to be getting their ducks in a row.

Sherman said: "I'm vengeful in that way". I helped the organisation get to a great place and stay there. As with any free agent, money played the biggest part in the deal, and Sherman said he got the best terms from the Niners after also talking to the Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders and offering the Seahawks a chance to match what the Niners offered. He's mad about falling to the fifth round of the 2011 draft, and about the quarterbacks who didn't take him seriously at first, and about the opposing fans who tell him to shut up.

"‏Welcome back to the Bay and to Santa Clara @RSherman_25!" "He was a guy who came out with similar measurables to me, you know, height and weight, and things like that".

But the Seahawks aren't doing it because they don't want Shead on the team any longer. He railed at the 49ers for daring to test him with a "sorry" wide receiver like Michael Crabtree, and warned Crabtree, "Don't you ever talk about me!"

Sherman acted as his own agent, as he's done throughout his career.

Sherman agreed to the incentive-laden deal on Saturday and signed that contract Sunday.

After a seemingly amicable parting between the four-time All Pro and the Seahawks organisation, Sherman revealed to Peter King of the MMQB that his reasons for linking up with the 9ers were "vengeful". "We've got a lot of work to do, but we feel like we're well on our way".

Sherman is mad, but he's also smart.

He has a $7 million base salary in the final two years of the deal, which goes to $8 million if he makes the Pro Bowl the previous year. Because of his veteran status, he was able to immediately sign with the 49ers rather than wait until Wednesday's start of the league year, which is when free agency otherwise commences.

Think of it this way, Seattle fans: It's time again to get out the Sharpie and circle the dates for 49ers games. Sherman has been a locker-room leader and mentor to younger players. The news that he was signed by the 49ers, though? The fan called Sherman a "traitor".

So why would the 49ers take in Sherman? No player with 300-plus targets has allowed a lower completion percentage (47.4) or passer rating (50.9) over the span either. His best seasons came in 2013 and 2014 when Seattle made two Super Bowl appearances and he has 32 interceptions.
