In one of those stunning offseason moments, it’s been reported that the Seattle Seahawks are open to moving Richard Sherman.

Of course, only serious offers would be considered for the All-Pro cornerback.

Sherman, a Super Bowl champ who has been named to four Pro Bowls and three First-Team All-Pro squads, is still one of the NFL’s most feared cover cornerbacks.

Even playing with an MCL injury last year (more on that here), he started in all 16 games, coming up with four interceptions and 13 defended passes. Over the course of his six-year career, all spent in Seattle, Sherman has racked up 30 interceptions and 97 defended passes, making him one of the NFL’s most prolific pass defenders in that time.

Sherman is set to earn a base salary of $11.43 million and count $13.63 million against the cap in 2017.
