Payback and pay: 'Vengeful' Richard Sherman defends contract with 49ers

It was such a great opportunity. Earlier that day, the three-time All-Pro cornerback quickly came to an agreement with the San Francisco 49ers on a contract, a three-year deal worth up to $39.15 million. People are out there burning my jersey.

Well here's a twist in the Richard-Sherman-to-the-49ers saga.

"I don't think any agent in the business could have done a better job of negotiating this contract", Sherman said.

Sherman, of course, will turn 30 on March 30 and tore his Achilles tendon in November, factors which prompted his release from the Seahawks and impacted his market value.

Nokia 9 To Feature In-Display Fingerprint Reader?
In terms of specs, Nokia 8 Sirocco runs on Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, coupled with a 6GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. Rumors are rife that it can feature the same 12-megapixel dual camera module which has been made available on Nokia 8 Sirocco.

And some of the incentives initially reported as being tie to the Pro Bowl are instead tied to making the All-Pro team, a much tougher task - $1 million for making it to the Pro Bowl and $2 million for making the All-Pro team.

The Seahawks released Sherman last week, and he signed with the 49ers without meeting with any other teams.

"We had something no other team could offer", Lynch said.
And the 49ers can get out of the deal before April 1, 2019, even if Sherman makes the Pro-Bowl guaranteeing his base salary for that season. "It gives me the ability to control my destiny".

Making things even more painful, 49ers GM John Lynch trolled the Seahawks for their painful Super Bowl XLIX loss to the Patriots, a game that featured the Seahawks losing because they made a decision to throw from the one-yard line instead of running Marshawn Lynch. I have skin in the game. The 10-year pro was due to make $6.5 million in salary, with a cap hit of $8.5 million. In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year. I couldn't feel secure in my contract.

The Seahawks surely know as well as anyone how Sherman's recovery is going and may well have viewed it as likely being at least a $10 million deal, assuming he gets and stays healthy.
