Richard Sherman is probably one of the most high-profile free agents now sitting on the market and his release from Seattle merited immediate attention from just about every team in the league.

Paraag Marathe, executive vice president of football operations for the 49ers, said Sherman was prepared to leave with the best possible offer.

"I'm vengeful in that way", Sherman said.

Once the offer was on the table, Sherman called the Seahawks, who released him the day before, to ask if they could match the offer.

"Vengeful", Sherman said. "I love the fan base to death, and I loved playing there". Come on. I'm not the one who let me go.

Sherman agreed to a three-year, incentive-laden deal worth up to $39.15 million, the 49ers announced Sunday. They let me go.

Stokes to miss India Test after trial date set
The cricketer will have to attend the trial of court starting from August 6 which is expected to last for five to seven days. Stokes, 26, missed the Ashes series during the winter after being arrested while on a night out in Bristol last September.

The Seahawks released Sherman last week, and he signed with the 49ers without meeting with any other teams. "I didn't abandon anybody".

Shead tore his ACL in Seattle's playoff loss to the Falcons in 2017 and only played in two games a year ago.

Sherman also gets, as previously reported, a base salary of $2 million, gets $1 million if he takes part in 90 percent of the 49ers' defensive snaps, and $2 million total if he is on the 46-man roster bonus each week (or, $125,000 for every game he is on the 46-man roster).

The San Francisco 49ers are running dangerously close to becoming the NFL team that has the biggest off-season glow-up, but they'll have to outdo the Cleveland Browns who appear to be shaking up the entire league. Though specific terms of the contract have not been made public, Sherman disclosed certain guarantees can roll over into the next year should he make the Pro Bowl. "Now, if I play the way I know I'm capable of playing, I know I'm going to get paid".

Sherman noted he'll be well-compensated if he plays as well as he has throughout a seven-year career that includes four Pro Bowls.
