Seahawks will 'explore trade options' for Richard Sherman

Richard Sherman, the four-time Pro Bowl cornerback and one of the NFL's biggest stars, appears to be on the way out of Seattle.

Reports that cornerback Richard Sherman may not be with the Seattle Seahawks much longer are swirling again.

In response, several Seahawks players have tweeted farewell messages to Sherman.

Speculation as to Sherman's future in Seattle ramped up after social media posts from two of his teammates, Jeremy Lane and Kam Chancellor, seemed to suggest that he could be on his way out.

However, a tweet from ESPN's Josina Anderson indicated that Sherman denied the reports.

"Chancellor of Operations" Thanks for the name @rsherman25", he wrote. "Sherman is set to make $11.4 million this year and $11 million in 2018 before he becomes a free agent", the outlet reported.

Sherman finished the season on the injured reserve after rupturing his Achilles tendon in a game against the Cardinals in November.

Schneider said last Friday at the NFL Combine that the team has no untouchables, a comment that came with the team heavily rumored to undergo a significant makeover this offseason as they attempt to right the ship following a 9-7 season in 2017.

Carroll called Sherman's recent surgery a "minor" procedure, but he had his left foot in a boot, and his health status for the 2018 season remains uncertain.

Sherman, who signed a four-year deal with the team back in 2014, ruptured his Achilles in week 10 this past season. If Sherman is cut by Seattle there would be a $2.2 million dead cap hit, a fraction of his 2018 salary.
