Packers Have "Preliminary Interest" in CB Richard Sherman

Packers Have

That visit will continue through Saturday. This dinner wasn't a friendly chit-chat, either, and that's because the 49ers appear to have some serious interest in bringing Sherman to San Francisco. Also pursuing Sherman are the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions.

According to the report, the 49ers want to make sure that Sherman is healing from his ruptured Achilles and if both teams are pleased, they will try to get a contract completed.

Reports Saturday morning indicated it may not take long for Richard Sherman to find a new home after he was released by the Seahawks on Friday.

As for what Sherman is stating about his injury, he has already told reporters that he will be on the treadmill running next week.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Sherman's first free agent visit will not be to Gillette Stadium. "So that might ameliorate people's concerns a little bit".

Seattle chose to officially sever ties with the four-time All-Pro defender on Friday for a variety of reasons. But the seven-year veteran doesn't mind.

It's easy to stay pessimistic after watching a franchise great be forced out the door, but the team's faith in Griffin and a host of other young defenders drafted recently provides a glimmer of hope that the Seahawks will only be in a temporary rebuild before returning to contention.

Sherman himself alluded to his release with a Tweet showcasing his impressive stats in the NFL. Some of the moves the 49ers have made this season indicate they're trying to do just that, including signing Jimmy Garoppolo to a five-year, $137.5 million contract last month.

Somewhere comfortable? 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh runs a defense similar to Seattle's. He finished the year 25 tackles and two interceptions in nine starts.

The 49ers attempted to work out a trade with the Denver Broncos for cornerback Aqib Talib, but could not get the deal done.
