Oddsmakers list Chargers as a suitor for Richard Sherman

Raiders Baby Reggie awakens solicits CB Richard Sherman's services

The Seattle Seahawks cut ties Friday with star cornerback Richard Sherman, who became one of the NFL's premier cornerbacks during his seven seasons with the team.

Drafted in 2011, Sherman is a free agent for the first time in his career.

Seattle Seahawks' Richard Sherman (25) eats turkey during a TV interview on the field after the San Francisco 49ers' lost 19-3 in their National Football League game against Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif., on Thursday, Nov. 27, 2014. Sherman was scheduled to earn an $11.4 base salary in 2018.

Now, there appears to be a real chance the 49ers are luring in Sherman after the Seattle Seahawks released him on Friday.

Sherman balked at that so the Seahawks instead explored trade options.

However, Sherman's Achilles injury makes him too much of a risk for the Colts, who aren't necessarily in a "win now" mode.

She also hugged Alice Thompson, the co-founder of a charity called Social Bite , on a visit to Scotland. The couple were greeted by students and other well-wishers, including pets.

If healthy, Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who excels in physical man-to-man coverage, would be an ideal fit for the 49ers' 4-3 defense.

But Sherman said at the Sports Star awards he thought he would be ready for the beginning of mini-camp.

- If there's one way to help ease the aftershock of losing arguably your top cornerback, pursuing a former All-Pro at the position may be the best route.

Sherman told the NFL Network's Tom Pelissero he was looking for a team that has a "great quarterback" and a place he will be comfortable.

And while that money means the Seahawks can be more active in free agency they also will need to use a significant portion of that money to re-sign some of their own players - free safety Earl Thomas is increasingly expected to get an extension prior to the 2018 season.

San Francisco started the offseason with a $137.5 million pact with impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo.
