Richard Sherman says move to 49ers adds fuel to his fire

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) Richard Sherman spent seven years tormenting the San Francisco 49ers with his lockdown coverage, colorful trash talk and celebratory turkey eating at midfield.

Now he has decided to join the enemy, signing a three-year contract with the 49ers almost immediately after being let go by the Seattle Seahawks last Friday.

”It’s a little odd to put on a different jersey. I’m sure it will take some getting used to for me,” Sherman said Monday. ”I’ve spent a lot of time wearing a red jersey in the Bay so I’m sure I’ll be able to figure it out.”

The former Stanford star has returned to the Bay Area since he wanted to stay on the West Coast to be close to his parents in Los Angeles and his soon-to-be wife’s family in Seattle.

Getting the chance to stay in the NFC West and play the Seahawks twice each year was an added bonus.

”It definitely had a part of it,” he said. ”I’d love to get to play in that stadium again in different colors. I’m going to try my best to ruin their day. I do want a chance to show what I can do out there.”

Sherman, who turns 30 later this month, is coming off an Achilles tendon injury that cost him half of the 2017 season.
