"I guess I'm more ahead of schedule than they thought I was", Sherman said then of his progress in recovering from Achilles surgery. He took to Twitter on Saturday to provide an update on his free agency.
San Francisco started the offseason with a $137.5 million pact with impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo.
Richard Sherman joining the Detroit Lions' secondary absolutely makes sense as pairing him with All-Pro cornerback Darius Slay and veteran safety Glover Quin would instantly make the Motor City a No-Fly zone. Also on the roster are DeAndre Elliott, who saw some action as a rookie in 2016 before spending all of last year on Injured Reserve, and Mike Tyson, a sixth-round pick in 2017 who spent most of last year on the practice squad. The move was to save a lot of money and get the team under the salary cap.
A deal with the 49ers is no certainty, as Sherman has plenty of other options.
He also turned his tongue to players.
