49ers questions, needs in free agency, NFL Draft after Richard Sherman signing

The San Francisco 49ers signed cornerback Richard Sherman to a three-year contract prior to the start of free agency proper, and it means we should be expecting a lot of different things as a result. San Francisco was expected to be in on guys like Trumaine Johnson and Malcolm Butler, but instead are unlikely to pursue another big-name at the position, at least in free agency.

San Francisco’s deal with Sherman includes a lot of incentives and bonuses that rely on Sherman seeing the field and playing. Some of them even require him to play well — imagine that. And while his recovery time is still a moving target, many have suggested that he will be ready to go by training camp.

It’s probably safe to say the 49ers consider that likely, making the acquisition of a potential emergency fill-in something that might be better-suited for the NFL Draft, where the 49ers have plenty of capital, than free agency, where the market is always fierce at cornerback.

Sherman will likely pair with Ahkello Witherspoon, and the two will be ahead of nickel cornerback K’Waun Williams on the depth chart. Add safety Jaquiski Tartt and Adrian Colbert to the mix, plus Jimmie Ward … wherever, and the 49ers are looking pretty good in
