Richard Sherman called Raiders, but McKenzie said no cap room

DeShawn Shead warms up before the game at AT&T Stadium. Shead was re-activated by the Seahawks and is expected to play Sunday

Sherman noted to Sports Illustrated that it was a key selling point for the 49ers.

Richard Sherman doesn't think it will take him too long to get comfortable with the 49ers. It gives him only a $3 million signing bonus, but another $2 million if he's medically cleared come training camp as well as a $2 million base salary for 2018. It says, if I make the All-Pro team, if I start every game, if I play this many snaps, and if I'm a Pro Bowler, I get extra bonuses.

Garoppolo fueled that closing act, and with him locked in last month on a NFL-record contract, his presence helped lure Sherman. Through six National Football League seasons, he has two interceptions, 24 passes defensed and 154 tackles in 54 games (22 starts).

Along the way, Sherman was a thorn in the 49ers side with great plays and pointed comments. The best comparison this year would be Vontae Davis, a lesser corner than Sherman. A restricted free agent last offseason, Shead signed a one-year deal worth $1.2 million. High-end incentives can increase the value to $8 million.

"I don't think it's going to be a transition at all", Sherman said.

The last time the duo went on tour together was in 2014 for On The Run but this will be their first United Kingdom tour together. Citi cardholders, Tidal subscribers and Beyhive members will have access to a pre-sale that begins on March 14.

At the end of a prove-it contract, one of two things happen. "Sometimes contract offers sting the player", Lynch said. Byron Maxwell and Justin Coleman will both hit unrestricted free agency on Wednesday. Talib, who ranks second with 34 interceptions since 2008, is 32, but he's also healthier, with Sherman still recovering from a ruptured Achilles tendon - the same injury that plagued cornerback Kayvon Webster and prompted the Rams to get so aggressive at this position in the first place.

ESPN reported that after Sherman was released, he was contacted by Tennessee Titans, Detroit Lions, Oakland Raiders, Houston Texans, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Green Bay Packers and 49ers. None of the money is guaranteed at signing, and about 22 percent is tied to his being active. "Here, in the inner sanctum of the team Sherman kept out of the Super Bowl four years ago, the most hated rival in recent San Francisco history spent four hours on Saturday afternoon negotiating his own contract with no agent".

And some of the incentives initially reported as being tied exclusively to the Pro Bowl are instead tied to making the All-Pro team, a much tougher task - $1 million for making it to the Pro Bowl and $2 million for making the All-Pro team. And millions more were guaranteed at signing in those cases.

"We had something no other team could offer", Lynch said.

Sherman said of his call to Seahawks general manager John Schneider: "They said they wouldn't be able to match that and he thought it was a solid deal".
