Veteran cornerback Richard Sherman has been on the open market for close to a month and he doesn’t expect much to change until after the draft.
Sherman gave the following update on The Cris Collinsworth Podcast featuring Richard Sherman.
“Well, apparently we got to wait ’til the draft happens before anything else shakes out, because everybody has their hopes and dreams in the draft, which is understandable,” Sherman said. “You turn 33, and then it’s like, ‘We’ll wait until we get a young pup; and if we can’t get a young pup, we’ll take an old fool.’ So that’s where we’re sitting.”
The Draft is scheduled for April 29 – May 1 in Cleveland.
Sherman said after the season that he doesn’t expect to be back in San Francisco due to cap reasons. The Saints were mentioned as a team that could have interest but not much has transpired.
Sherman is one of a handful of players in the league without an agent. He represents himself in negotiations.
He played just five games last season due to injuries. He had one interception and one pass defensed. He appeared in 14 game in 2018 and 15 in 2019 with the 49ers.
