Richard Sherman vs. NFL Player: Want a bigger deal? Willing to strike

Posted on by

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman says NFL players would have to be willing to strike in order to get huge guaranteed contracts like the ones being signed this offseason by NBA players.

On Saturday, NBA free agents agreed to deals totaling nearly $1 billion in the first 24 hours of free agency.

In an appearance on the ESPYS Red Carpet on Wednesday, Sherman was asked by ESPN’s Jalen Rose if NFL players would have to consider striking to get similar deals.

“Oh, 100 percent,” Sherman said. “If we want as the NFL, as a union, to get anything done, players have to be willing to strike. That’s the thing that guys need to 100 percent realize.

“You’re going to have to miss games, you’re going to have to lose some money if you’re willing to make the point, because that’s how MLB and NBA got it done. They missed games, they struck, they flexed every bit of power they had, and it was awesome. It worked out for them.”

Sherman also said NFL players have to re-evaluate how they look at contracts and longevity, pointing to deals signed by the Golden State Warriors’ Kevin Durant and the Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James.

“NBA players like KD and LeBron are sitting there taking two-year deals like it’s nothing,” Sherman said. “They figure, ‘I’ll take a two-year deal because I’m going to wait for the salary cap to increase and get another bite at the apple.’ In our sport, they won’t do it.”

CB DeShawn Shead, Seahawks agree to the terms of the one-year transaction

Posted on by

The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms on a one-year deal with cornerback DeShawn Shead, per a league source.

The deal is worth $1.5 million with $1 million guaranteed at the time of signing, per a league source.

710 ESPN Seattle was first to report the Seahawks’ agreement with Shead.

Shead started 15 games opposite Richard Sherman last season and played at a high level, but he suffered a torn ACL and meniscus in his left knee in the divisional round of the playoffs.

He finished last season with an interception, forced fumble and 14 passes defended.

Shead was originally a restricted free agent, but the team did not tender him, making him an unrestricted free agent. He took a free-agent visit to the Buffalo Bills but is returning to Seattle.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider said at the combine that Shead would have a hard time being ready for the start of the 2017 season, but coach Pete Carroll said Shead had a chance to return for Week 1.

“DeShawn is a great kid. He’s got really strong faith,” Schneider told reporters. “You’d want him to be your son — you know what I mean? His mindset is like, ‘Hey, I’m going.’ I say he’s probably not going to be there right away; that’s just me. He’s probably got a different mindset. He’s crushing his rehab right now.”

Shead, 28, began his career on the Seahawks’ practice squad before working his way into a starting cornerback role in 2015. He also served as Seattle’s special-teams captain last season.

When healthy, Shead will have a chance to compete for the starting cornerback job.
