Report: Sherman Says Bucs Are Interested

March 10th, 2018

Jason Licht is sniffing

Free agency already started for stud but injured cornerback Richard Sherman, who was launched from the Seahawks yesterday.

Coming off a blown Achilles last season, plus an additional surgery designed to prevent another blown Achilles, Sherman is a wounded 30-year-old corner. Obviously, he could heal and regain his stardom, and Sherman possesses the intense, vocal edge the Bucs appear to need a lot more of on defense.

Frankly, Joe would steer clear of the guy. Injured and 30 is what it is, and any amount of pretending won’t change that. But he’s certainly worth a good sniff and the Bucs are doing just that, per BSPN NFL superinsider Adam Schefter.

@Adam Schefter – Free-agent CB Richard Sherman told @JosinaAnderson that he has received preliminary interest from the Titans, Lions, Raiders, Texans, Bucs and Packers. But 49ers are his first visit, with meetings today. noted the following on Sherman’s resume.

Since he entered the league in 2011, the erstwhile Seahawks superstar leads all players in interceptions (32), passes defensed (99), completion rate allowed (47.4) and opposer passing rating (50.9).

On the other hand, he turns 30 later this month and is coming off surgeries to both Achilles. Although he started playing more man-to-man defense in recent years, the peak of his career was spent in Seattle’s trademark zone scheme.

The only thing that could possibly get Sherman to Tampa is a gargantuan sum of money to outbid whatever he’d get elsewhere — from a better team and closer to his west coast roots. Joe can’t see any reason to invest that way in an old and injured corner.

    I honestly hop not. Joe you just wrote an article about people actually watching games. Well I’ve watched Seattle and Sherman to me is what people thought of barber. A system guy. But barber could do alot more than Sherman. I don’t want a “#1 corner” that doesn’t follow the opposing teams best receiver all over the field. It’s easy to be a good corner with the pass rush they had. He won’t have that in Tampa

    Hes too loud talks to much with no action to back it up. There are better corner out there who would be cheaper and less of a locker room presence.

    The headache doesn’t equal the play on the field. Just my opinion

    pass on sherman

  4. donuts Says:

    Sherman is Baker 2.0; will blame others when he gets toasted and this version has 2 broken wheels and is a zone CB. Gaines/Grimes is better option for cover corners in NFC-South.


  5. Joeypoppems Says:

    They should be interested. Sherman could be out there with both his achilles torn and he would still give up less yards than VH3.

  6. ZK Says:

    F Sherman!

  7. tmaxcon Says:

    No way Sherman can coexist with cancer93 running the bucs defense. Unlike cancer93 Sherman is highly intelligent and will not tolerate the soft lackadaisical approach cancer93 takes and demands of his defensive minions.

  8. webster Says:

    Wait a minute….30 is old to joe but you have begged for the bucs to sign 37 year old peppers, 36 year old grimes, 32 year old bennett and talib, 34 year old roddy white among numerous other plus 30 year old players. You guys are funny

  9. BritishColumbiaBuc Says:

    Joe, you’re saying Sherman is 30 and too old to bother signing..? Didn’t you want Julius Peppers, Michael Bennet, Aquib Talib, and a re-signed Brent Grimes? (All older than Sherm) Sherman would be great fire for our defence. Maybe even passionate enough to get the ice cream man fired up too. Would be great to have him on our team.

  10. El_Buc941 Says:

    Get Sherman and ink him to a 3 year deal at $31mil/21mil guaranteed and draft Minkah Fitzpatrick,keep Hargreaves on the inside and sign another CB in FA and our secondary should be for the pass rusher,pray to God that Noah Spence AND Robert Ayers miraculously turn back the clock of father time and are the answer because I doubt we will have signed any pass rushers by the beginning of week 1.although there still is a chance in preseason during team cuts.

  11. El_Buc941 Says:

    Also Sherman could help land other FAs in Tampa

  12. webster Says:

    There goes those uneducated buc fans again. 4 or 5 years ago the knock on sherman was he did not travel with the best reciever. As of three years ago, that changed, but lets continue to use an outdated knock on a player as a reason to not want him. Loud? Is that code for minority who is too confident and that makes little old me uncomfortable? No action to back it up? Lets see, the man since 2011 is 1st in ints, 1st in pass defensed with 99, 1st in completion %, 1st in ratings. Sure seems like a lot of action to me. But yea, lets continue to be the uneducated buc fan and just spew jibberish.

  13. tmaxcon Says:

    Bucs were interested I’ve read several reports this morning saying Sherman will be a 49er…

    No player with a CHOICE will pick bucs.

  14. Not there yet Says:

    Oh and don’t forget they wanted 36 year old Cameron wake. Multiple teams are interested but Tampa shouldn’t sign him because he’s old and injured? Ok

  15. BetterBuccinBelieveIt Says:

    Now…THIS is a source. Some tenacity, and fire for the secondary might not be such a bad thing on a 1 year, incentive-laden deal up to $7 million all in. Someone will likely take him off the market first though.

    Mine as well trade for Earl Thomas here too, would make some sense bback there.

    Leave enough picks for Saquon!

    We’ll see.

    Go Bucs!

    Jesus Christ himself could not help persuade free agents to come to this sh!t show franchise ran by gglazers. It certainly will not be Sherman seeing He will never choose Tampa…. 49ers will sign Sherman

  17. webster Says:

    Come off it tmax. Ive already gave you many free agents that were rated the best free agent at their position that have come to the bucs since 2012. Why do you keep spewing false statements? Just last year djax came here. Come off it already

  18. Joe Blahak Says:

    He’s damaged goods…no way!

  19. tmaxcon Says:


    You listed many of free agents yes but you failed to mention they all regresses when arriving and NOT ONE OF THEM ACCOMPLISHED ANYTHING BUT LOSING

  20. tmaxcon Says:


    The goal is to win not collect a bunch of basement dwelling losers…

  21. Buccaneer scotty Says:


  22. SCBucsFan Says:

    Ah Tmax, I really feel sorry for you. You must be a miserable person to be around. I really feel sad when I see all the hate in you.

  23. VA BUC Says:

    Like i said a while ago JOE is a Hypocrite the biggest one ever…@Webster i agree with you all he does is beg for grandfathers but doesnt want Sherman when he begged for Grimes back when he tore his Achilles b4 he went to Miami. Now @Joe stories b good sometimes n sometimes you can see the full of Sh!+ journalist ish he does i dont think he’s a true Bucs fan, doing it for the mula. Cause he wanted Robert Quinn who has back problems💁

  24. tmaxcon Says:


    Again if all these great free agents chose Tampa and all our drafted players are keepers as you suggest why has this team embarrassed itself for over a decade. You do realize the only thing that matters is win losses. Feel good stories are for losers….


    No need to feel sorry for me I’m not the low stand azzclown trying to justify failure by this incompetent owners

  25. webster Says:

    @ tmax

    Thats not the point. You said no top free agent will come here. They will come here. Now the regression you speak of, thats something for the organization to work on. But they will come here period.

  26. SCBucsFan Says:

    So sad for you

  27. Frank Pillow Says:

    Settle down everyone…We are merely bargaining leverage- like always. Sadly, Sherman on two bad legs and 30 is still better than any CB we have on the roster.

  28. Lamarcus Says:

    VA BUC

    Like i said a while ago JOE is a Hypocrite the biggest one ever…?????


  29. webster Says:

    And multiple time pro bowlers and all pro free agents who have played in the super bowl and playoffs prior to the bucs are not losers. What are you smoking?

  30. Lamarcus Says:

    We are resigning our talent. I can’t see how we afford Sherman. It has to be a one to two year deal Mega dollar. It won’t happen

  31. tmaxcon Says:


    Once they get to Tampa they become losers RESULTS PROVE IT…. No one can suck the life and desire to win from free agents, draft picks and coaches like the doll playing locker room cancer captain blowout cancer93

  32. tmaxcon Says:


    There is nothing positive about bucs. keep trying but the only stat that matters is wins and you have no defense or BS spin that can justify how pathetic bucs have been.

  33. tmaxcon Says:


    Your defense of bucs his similar to guy who catches the clap and is excited its not herpes.

  34. SCBucsFan Says:

    Tmax please seek help. You might be a good guy if you shed all the hate.

  35. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    We need a CB and some firey players, especially on defense. He fits the bill.

  36. ChanEpic Says:

    Sherman is better @80% than most of our CBs @ 100%. But he brings the biggest intangible that the Bucs need more than talent. Leadership! And intellectual leadership at that. He takes media heat off of Winston, Evans, McCoy.
    He’s won an SB. If the Bucs are lucky enough to get him, it’s the biggest no brainer in the world.

  37. Aristotle Says:

    Richard Sherman!!!! You are Welome in Tampa!!!!

  38. darin Says:

    Still no idea why the bucs seem more interested in corners than DEs. If the qb gets enough time for his wrs to find the soft spots in the weak zone its 1st and 10 again. Average corners look great with a pass rush and great corners look below average without. I sure hope some other DEs become available in trades or get cut because FA and the draft are slim pickins. Gona be a long year watching a 4 man “rush” in a weak zone without guys who can at least get pressure. Unless of course Licht is proactive and does something about it.

  39. Eric Says:

    Get him if you can. Only costs glazer money, not ours.

    He hates losing, that’s a good start.

  40. William Says:

    Need to sign Sherman AND Gaines, and either draft Fitzpatrick or James at #7. This secondary is we have is below Busch League ! Nobody in the DL is gonna get to the QB when they can literally just toss the ball anywhere on the field and complete a pass !

  41. Debilah Says:

    Webster: Grimes is still 34😱

  42. Tony from Los Angeles Says:

    I’m at a loss. Joe pines for a bunch of vets many years older – several who had injuries last year – but thinks Sherman is too old and injured despite the fact he’s several years younger than those other vets. This isn’t complicated. Sherman is injured now. Serious surgery. Joe isn’t clamoring for guys off major injuries at all.–Joe


    The Bucs blew the trade opportunities to make big improvements because they REALLY value the random special teamers they’ll end up drafting with those late picks more, apparently.

    Licht has one shot left. Norwell.
    Stick to the lines and really build a winner the right way.


  43. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    I read somewhere that Sherman followed 5 Bucs players on Twitter. That’s what sparked this rumor.

    To be honest, I would have preferred him over Talib, but really, I don’t like the guy. I think he’s a punk without respect for others.

  44. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Although, I have to say, the in thing for players this year seems to be claiming the Bucs are interested so that they get offers elsewhere.

  45. First Down Tampa Bay Says:

    Sherman isn’t coming to us. He’s a lock to go to SF as long as his injuries check out

  46. tmaxcon Says:


    and you sir might be a man if you had standards and lived in reality…. there is NOTHING positive about the last 16 years as a buc fan. living in denial or your safespace does not make you a better fan it makes you clueless.

  47. tmaxcon Says:


    twitter followers spraked this rumor… really??? Your assumptions and stupidity never ceases to amaze me. Sherman’s own words had nothing to do with it… You might be more of a clown than that career loser you worship.

  48. NFLNut Says:

    I think Sherman ends up in either Frisco (to stick it to his old team twice a year – which wouldn’t actually happen) or Oakland … he probably wants to go to the Patriots or Steelers but nether has expressed any interest yet I guess … as for Tampa … I’d rather get a younger, non-injured CB.

  49. Mike Johson Says:

    I don’t care about any of this, I want to see..what improvements we are going to make along that Defensive line. If you cannot get a pass rush,,some pressure..some hurries? You are going to be the same ole Bucs team as before. You can get Sheman, General Lee, and the con-fed-eracy!! It won’t matter. No pressure and the opposition is going to score more than you everytime.

  50. donuts Says:

    On Sherman-

    If you look closer at those numbers he has had 12 INT in last 4 years. 3 ints per year for 10-11 Million is not value. His numbers before 2014 are unmatched; no doubt. Its a what have ya done recently league. He had 2 INTs last year in 9 games and is coming off a serious leg/achilles injury. The achilles might be the most impt muscle for any CB.
    There is risk for sure with Sherman.

  51. Pickgrin Says:

    Signing 30 year old Richard Sherman for $11Mish per makes a hell of a lot more sense to me than paying $11M + a 5th rd pick for 32 year old Talib.

    Dude has the stats and the ‘tude and the winning pedigree and would be a GREAT addition to our defensive backfield. If the health prognosis is that Sherman’s achilles will be fully healed in time for training camp – I would not hesitate to go after this player with full intent to sign him – as long as he is willing to be reasonable on his $ demands.

    Grimes and Sherman would be an awesome starting duo – even if just for a year or 2.

  52. USFBUC Says:

    So I don’t know if Sherman is coming here or not but given his history of being a solid CB in both zone and man coverage he could be a good addition for the Bucs.

    For people criticizing his attitude, I don’t think you understand the CB position. That position is one of the ones that requires players with big egos because they have the job of taking on the WRs typically on an island where blown coverage often means a big play or TD. You need guys with big personalities at the CB position, who expect that they are going to neutralize the best WR the other team has all on their own.

  53. tmaxcon Says:

    Sherman will NOT leave the 49ers without an gig…. Eagles, Browns, Niners all KILLING the off season…. yet the glazers shop for left overs, has beens and injury prone gambles to ensure the buccaneer basement streak stays intact. So much hope! So much to be positive about! LOL Glazers are simply the worst owners in all of sports…

  54. Pickgrin Says:

    Bonzai – I think you would warm up to liking Sherman pretty quickly if he were to come in here and play like he is capable of playing.

    Nobody on other teams or other teams fans liked Sapp and his loud, brash ways either – but Bucs fans sure did like him as a player and a leader of other players.

  55. NFLNut Says:


    In other news, I think the Browns landing Tyrod Taylor makes it nearly 100% likely that SAQUON BARKLEY will indeed be the #1 overall pick … and that they’ll wait till their 4th pick to take a QB, which I believe will be Josh Allen.

    The Giants are the team that is extremely hard to predict. I think #1 is Saquon, #3 is Chubb, #4 is Allen, #5 is Darnold and #6 is either Rosen or Mayfield but it all depends on what the Giants do with the #2 pick.

    Right now, I’m thinking they will trade the #2 pick to the Broncos or Jets and then take Quenton Nelson at #5 or #6.

    Also, the Bills now have a ton of picks to move up into the top 7 so if they don’t trade into the #2 or #3 spot, there is a great chance they call Licht and offer a King’s ransom for the #7 pick to take their new QB.

    If I had to put $$$ on it, I’d say this is how the top 7 plays out:

    1. Browns: Saquon Barkley
    2. Broncos (trade with Giants): Sam Darnold
    3. Colts: Bradley Chubb
    4. Browns: Josh Allen (the perfect guy to sit for 1 year behind Tyrod)
    5. Giants: Quenton Nelson
    6. Jets: Baker Mayfield
    7. Bills (Trade up with Bucs): Josh Rosen

    21-22 BUCS (pick two). Viti Vea, Arden Key, Sam Hubbard, Maurice Hurst, Ronnie Harrison, Derrius Guice, Carlton Davis, Will Hernandez, James Daniels, Billy Price

    Note: If Rosen, Darnold, Mayfield or Darnold is still on the board and that is who the Bills are trading up for, I actually think we could get MORE than just the #21 and #22 as the Bills are now DESPERATE for one of the top 4 guys and have a ton of picks to play with.


  56. NFLNut Says:



    Browns killing the offseason? WHAT?????????????

    They made a GREAT trade for Jarvis Landry but then made TWO HORRIBLE TRADES!!!!

    1. Gave up the first overall pick in the 3rd round (basically a late 2nd) for Tyrod Taylor who many thought the Bills were just going to cut after they got their QB of the future in the draft … HORRIBLE TRADE for Cleveland that would have been akin to us trading a 3rd overall for Richard Sherman just before he was cut

    2. Gave up DeShone Kizer and the better picks (pick swap) to the Packers for a CB they benched who the Browns apparently will try to move to an entirely new position next year … you don’t give up a talented QB with potential (and as bad a rookie year as he had, everyone saw the arm talent and potential and the Packers obviously are willing to dump their own 2015 rookie QB investment just to land Kizer) and swap multiple better picks with another team for a benched CB that needs to move to safety



  57. KZ Says:

    Revis came for a season after he blew out his knee and we were so sad to see him go. Same situation will occur here. Sign him! Cause there’s such an abundance of CB’s on our roster right??

  58. Wausa Says:

    Bucs signed Javien Elliott to a 1 year contract

  59. Not there yet Says:

    Now than anything else they need a guy like Sherman in the locker room, to many weakness so called leaders on this team and the real leaders are guys who have done nothing in this league yet. I’d love to see Sherman challenge McCoy for leadership on defense even if he’s not 100% they need his edge

  60. tmaxcon Says:


    you are entitled to your opinion on whether they made a bad trade or not. They did what was right for their rosters and team…. When they hang 50 on Cancer93 and his girls this year I guess you can take back they had a bad off season while bucs remain permanently in the nfc south basement with left overs, has beens and injury prone gambles. But you can be sure of one thing they will lose quietly and with dignity. I’d rather a team take a chance and gamble then conitnuely lose out and never really compete for anything.

  61. tmaxcon Says:


    You might be the only person outside of his mother to use DeShone Kizer and talented qb in the same sentence. Nice Job!

    At least the browns are making moves bucs are standing pat with the worst and softest defense in the NFL

  62. Pa Privateer Says:

    If it is a “prove it” deal then it doesn’t hurt anything. If I was Licht I would sign Sherman to a prove it contract, but still attack FA and the Draft as if he wasn’t going to play……as long as we are NOT counting on Sherman being the #1 corner this year, then I am fine with this.

  63. BuccLuck Says:

    This would be a waste of money…

  64. Eric Says:

    I recall we got rid of Lynch cause we thought he was damaged goods.

    Went on to several more great seasons with the Broncos.

    Sometimes you got to roll the dice. This guy would become the immediate leader of our defense. We need that.

  65. Red86 Says:

    Sherman is similar to Darrell Revis in term of play and when we had interest in him. Revis wasn’t healed from his injury when we got him. Sherman can shutdown TEs like Olson with his height. He could be a pest for Julio Jones. I want my favorite cb of this era on this team.

  66. aussieBucfan Says:

    I am not sure how this team gets better if we do not change the current talent level? It’s like being in the matrix and people are stuck in a loop program.

    Complain about current team, an alternative is mentioned, create regency bias based on the following factors (age, salary, personality, a projection of future production), deny alternative, blame management are asleep at the wheel, complain about current team, repeat hmm..

  67. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    tmaxcon Says

    twitter followers spraked this rumor… really??? Your assumptions and stupidity never ceases to amaze me. Sherman’s own words had nothing to do with it… You might be more of a clown than that career loser you worship.”

    Hey stupid. The rumors started before he said anything. They were the reason he was asked about it. Thanks for proving you are an idiot.

  68. tmaxcon Says:


    what is the color of the sky in your world?

  69. Charles Stevens Says:

    I have to agree.Losing long enough,somewhere near 30 pct winning percentage.ughh .!!

  70. NFLNut Says:


    The Browns made one good trade and two BAD ones … that’s what you want from the Bucs? Um, okay …

    Quick, let’s trade the #7 to the Bills for the #21 and #22 (good trade) and then let’s trade that #21 for Dee Ford (bad trade) and the #22 for Jerry Hughes (bad trade) … would that make you happy? Of course not.

  71. NFLNut Says:

    An interesting tweet just popped and the article it links to is interesting:

    Personally, I love Bell and the trade in the article linked to in the tweet is a very good one … but … I think the $14+mil he wants could be better spent on Carlos Hyde AND a starting DE/CB, with us keeping the #7 …

  72. tmaxcon Says:


    It’s your opinion they are BAD… They may work out just fine for browns. One thing we know for sure is this team has NOT gotten any better and more aggressive winners are making moves.

  73. JonBuc Says:

    Sherman would turn malcontent quickly under The Dirk and Smiley Smith. He would be going from The Legion of Boom to The Legion of Gloom/Dome.

  74. JonBuc Says:

    Doom that is 🙂

  75. AlteredEgo Says:

    Achilles injuries are over rated….hecked … in addition to the Achilles injury, Sherman played the 2016 season with an undisclosed MCL injury….Dr Tom Stimus have him a clear title

  76. John meeks Says:

    He would have to be checked out by our medical staff,at his age it’s a gamble if he could come back and play at his highest could be worth a gamble,can’t be any worse than what we have right now.i like tremaine Johnson better,he is younger and healthy!

  77. JimmyJack Says:

    Ok let me get this right……Richard Sherman has played in every game of his career until his injury last year. He had a bad injury last year and didn’t make the pro bowl. Every other year of his career(except rookie year) he was a pro bowl/all pro player.

    Richard Sherman is a motivated warrior on the field. He’s also a guy who demands accountability from his teammates. He’s a field general and a leader. This franchise has spent over a decade looking for leaders on the field like this. Now there is one on the market and some fans are not intrested because he had one injury in his career and may miss(worst case scenario) 3 games. His best case scenario is he is ready for mini camp which he has said he expects to be.

    Make no mistake Sherman is a durable player. He’s missed 7 games in his career which all came last year. He is also coming off of the same injury that Kobe Bryant suffered…..I didn’t bother looking up multiple examples.

    If you don’t want Sherman in Tampa Bay you don’t want a contender. You want a few cheap wins in 2018.

  78. John meeks Says:

    Jimmyjack, the thing you might have missed is Sherman is coming off surgery of “both”Achilles. That has to be a concern,but in my opinion if our medical team thinks he can be back in 2018 then it’s worth a gamble to get him to Tampa if they can come to a sensible contract agreement.

  79. NFLNut Says:

    Kobe is my fave BBall player ever and his competitive fire makes Sherman look like a pansy … and Kobe was a SHELL OF HIMSELF after his Achilles injury …

  80. Reach87 Says:

    Webster, great points. Don’t worry, moron is off his meds again. Go Bucs!

  81. JimmyJack Says:

    Meeks….I could be wrong but I think he only tore one Achilles.

    Nut…maybe Kobe was a bad example. I follow very little basketball. I guess we will see if Sherman’s career is finished. Either way I would still take a guy that can bring leadership to your team like Sherman could.

    It’s just my opinion but the losers mindset this team has is the main thing that has to change. Sherman is maybe the only guy that I see available that could change that.

    You bring in a Trumaine Johnson and when the guys around him get caught running half speed like I saw last year his talent makes little impact. You bring in a guy like Sherman and I believe he would not tolerate unmotivated players lining up next to him. No brainer IMO

  82. NFLNut Says:


    If we did sign Sherman, would you be in favor of trading a 3rd and 6th for Earl Thomas as well, or would you rather just fill the safety spot in free agency with a guy like Tre Boston or Eric Reid or a guy in the draft like Ronnie Harrison or DeShone Elliott?

    I understand your point of view on Sherman; I just don’t know if he’d be as good a leader as Kwon already is, or if he’d just be a malcontent that would screw with team chemistry … Kobe is a good comparison as the guy was a jerk but it worked because he was also the best player on the team … if Sherman isn’t as good as Kwon I don’t know why Kwon would let him be the alpha leader of the defense …

  83. Max Says:

    Only way he comes to Tampa is if we overpay a LOT more than the competition. Not worth it for us.

  84. Rod Munch Says:

    The Bucs need to resign Grimes no matter what else they do, but I’d certainly have no issue with them also signing Sherman, I just don’t know if he’d actually be all that great of a player at this point in his career and I doubt in Tampa he could get away with holding on every play. The Bucs have the money to throw around and Licht is a year away from getting fired unless there is a big turnaround, so if it was me running the team I’d sign every vet I could like my name is Jon Gruden.

  85. JimmyJack Says:

    Nut….I think Kwon and Sherman could easily co exist.

    I don’t think they would ever butt heads because our linebacker corps comes into every game prepared. With Kwon and LDV their is a lot of determination and accountability in our LB group…..even when bench players come in they play with an air of confidence and play fast(even if they don’t make every play)…….But Kwons leadership doesn’t seem to rub off on the rest of the defense. This is where I think Sherman would be a huge addition. First off he would demand a lot more from our secondary, you would never catch a guy, like Ward last year, play in Sherman’s secondary and play half speed.

    Sherman wouldn’t have to say a word to any of our linebackers because those guys come hard every game. You would have two units of your defense playing hard…..Eventually it would have to either rub off on the Dline or the rest o& the defense would probably start demanding more production.

  86. JimmyJack Says:

    Nut that sounds like a great trade on paper. I’m always in favor of trading picks for proven players but that’s probably cause I don’t follow much college. I also dont think 3rd rounders are that valuable but remember if I were a GM you can pretty much bet I’d be a colossal failure in running a draft.

    But really when you look at this team our defensive line gets stood up way too easily. The pocket they give literally has a ten yard radius on most downs. Whatever time we are giving for QBs to throw has to be in the bottom of the league but it gets worse then that……Giving them time is one thing, but even when the QB released the ball there usually was still not a lineman anywhere the QB.

    If we are trading anything and it’s not for something to help the passrush it maybe a big mistake.

  87. NFLNut Says:

    ^ I just know Earl Thomas is gettable … I don’t know any more pass rushers that are being offered up … I’d consider a trade for the Bills Jerry Hughes and the Jaguars Dante Fowler though

  88. JimmyJack Says:

    Alright Nut you talked me into it. Earl Thomas is a baller. I can’t pass.

    What? Now a third is no good? Ok, fine take my second and fifth.

    ^^see, I told you. I’d be an abomination as a GM

  89. Duke Says:


    Nice call! SF closed the deal. coffee for you.

    Brett Grimes was the same age as RS is now, had the same surgery……3 pro bowls later He seems to have recovered.

    I don’t know how the leadership of Kwon could be in jeopardy because He’s not the leader yet. The bigger issues would probably be from GMC because Sherman isn’t a guy who would stand back ever. That’s what a natural leader does vs a leader by his position.

    For those thanking God Sherman didn’t sign… just a reminder, Ryan Smith is at the top of the current depth chart. He’s literally the worst corner in all of the NFL, and he’s currently the top guy with a contract on the team.
