Richard Sherman likely to be released soon by Seahawks

Richard Sherman was in Las Vegas Thursday attending NFL Players Association meetings and also — according to a few pictures on social media, anyway — trying his luck at a craps table.

What he also figures to soon be is an ex-Seahawk with the team remaining expected to release him in the next 24 to 48 hours.

The Seahawks have explored trade options for Sherman but nothing appears to have materialized — at least as of Thursday morning — and Seattle is likely to instead release Sherman ahead of the beginning of the new league year on Wednesday. Sherman isn’t apparently attracting much of a trade market because teams know he is likely to be released and because of his $11 million salary and coming off an Achilles injury.

Because Sherman is a vested veteran his contract would officially be terminated and he would immediately become a free agent.

The Seahawks would be open to re-signing Sherman at a lower salary than the $11 million he is due in 2018. But how eager Sherman would be to return to Seattle at a lower salary is hard to tell. Conventional wisdom is Sherman would likely want to move on.
