Sherman opts for three-year deal with Niners

Richard Sherman has agreed to a three-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers. The free-agent cornerback told ESPN’s Josina Anderson that the incentive-laden deal is worth up to $39.15 million.

“I’m thankful to John [Lynch, 49ers GM] and Kyle [Shanahan, 49ers coach] for believing in me,” Sherman told Anderson. “Some smaller details still getting ironed out, but #ShermInTheBay.”

The 49ers had met with Sherman earlier Saturday and wanted to make sure he is healing well from a torn Achilles in one leg and a bone spur in the other. On Friday, Sherman told Anderson that he will be back running on the treadmill next week.
