"I want to go to a contender", Sherman told KIRO-AM in Seattle on Friday. "I didn't abandon anybody".

The San Francisco 49ers don't hand out bad contracts.

After being released by the Seahawks, Sherman said he wanted to sign with a contender.

The 49ers were interested in making certain Sherman is healing from his injuries, ESPN's Adam Schefter previously reported, and apparently are convinced that he will recover.

Sherman received an incentive-laden three-year, $39 million contract that he negotiated himself as his own agent.

New Alexa Feature Makes Follow-Up Commands Easier
Only available in US English and on Amazon Echo devices for now, Follow-Up Mode can be switched on via the Alexa smartphone app. It also won't activate while you're listening to music, streaming an audiobook or making an Alexa call.

Once the offer was on the table, Sherman called the Seahawks, who released him the day before, to ask if they could match the offer.

"Richard is one of the premier competitors Kyle and I have ever encountered", 49ers general manager John Lynch said in a statement. "Sure, if the number looks right and the situation is comfortable for me and my family". Unless a lowered down contract is accepted by Sherman, 2017 may be the last time Seahawks fans will see Sherman, and the entire "Legion of Boom" in action. That seems likely, assuming Sherman has been correct in saying he thinks he'll be fully healed by the summer.

Sherman also gets, as previously reported, a base salary of $2 million, gets $1 million if he takes part in 90 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps, and $2 million total if he is on the 46-man roster bonus each week (or, $125,000 for every game he is on the 46-man roster). And so the guy who kept the 49ers out of the Super Bowl four years ago now hopes to help them return ... along with one other incentive. He then told The MMQB it includes guarantees that roll over each season if he makes the Pro Bowl.

Sherman, at only 31 years old, could potentially have a lot left in the tank for a team that is willing to gamble on him. san Francisco is seemingly in a position where they feel they can afford to pay for a veteran who might not be on the team even two or three years from today. In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year. Obviously, Richard Sherman would also have to make it his entire contract without being cut to make the full deal.

All adding just that much more to a storyline that is nowhere near complete.
