San Francisco 49ers: Pros & cons for signing cornerback Richard Sherman

His first stop is Santa Clara, Calif., and Adam Schefter of ESPN reported Saturday that it could very well be his only visit with the expectation the 49ers are ready to write a check if Sherman's surgically repaired Achilles passes inspection.

Sherman, who turns 30 this month, said Friday on KIRO-AM in Seattle that he wants to go to a franchise that's building a championship team.

The Seahawks also released cornerback Jeremy Lane, another move that had been long rumored. Ahkello Witherspoon, a third-round pick who played well in nine starts as a rookie, and slot corner K'Waun Williams, who received a midseason contract extension, are the only corners who are clearly in the 49ers' 2018 plans.

Yet, the 49ers are expected to be cautious when evaluating Sherman after an Achilles injury sidelined him for the final seven games last season.

Even if Sherman does not sign with the 49ers immediately it seems pretty clear a return to the Seahawks on a lesser deal than he had isn't first on Sherman's agenda.

The talented, brash defender has been one of the faces of a team that appeared in two Super Bowls and won one, success built on a hard-hitting defensive identity and the vaunted "Legion of Boom" secondary.

The Seahawks could also re-sign DeShawn Shead, who like Maxwell is also an unrestricted free agent. The Seahawks will add $11 million in salary cap space for 2018 with his departure. In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.
