Seahawks GM acknowledges Richard Sherman on trade block

Seahawks GM acknowledges Richard Sherman on trade block

"What you've seen lately in the news is real", Schneider said Wednesday morning on "Brock and Salk", via The Seattle Times. At the end of March, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported that the Patriots asked the Seahawks about Sherman before they signed Stephon Gilmore in free agency.

"This isn't a secret like this just came out of nowhere", he said. We know that. Hypothetically, what would you give up for Sherman? Now, according to the Boston Herald, the Patriots are interested in trading for Sherman if they can't sign Malcolm Butler. It goes through player development, it goes through our sports science group. He's coming off his most volatile season that included two sideline blowups during games when he clashed with coaches and had to be pulled aside by teammates. The Seahawks are not expected to act on it. Pete Carroll downplayed the situation recently, "There have been some teams that have called, and so we've talked about it", "But he's extremely important to our football team".

It also makes sense that the Patriots would only get serious about acquiring Sherman if they lose Butler. "There's a lot going on there", said Schneider.

The company's margins have also taken a knock as department stores discount heavily to get rid of excess inventory. Ralph Lauren shares fell almost 4 percent Tuesday to $78.22.

The Patriots don't have a first-round pick this year, but that could change depending on what happens with Butler.

Even though Butler is a very good cornerback, Sherman is one of the best in the league, and the Seahawks are willing to listen to offers on him. They want 2017 to be far less tumultuous for and from their megastar than 2016 was. Will Sherman continue to wear the Seahawks jersey for years to come? The coach and GM who champion individuality and personality with his players - remember this, from Christmastime? - are fine with that colorful side of Sherman. At the same time, ponder this: You could argue that just three years ago, the best cornerbacks were Darrelle Revis, Josh Norman, and Sherman. He's recorded 332 tackles, a sack, 92 passes defensed, 30 interceptions, and five forced fumbles in his career and has established himself as one of the NFL's top corners. All $11,431,000 of his base pay for this year is guaranteed. His dead money against Seattle's salary cap, should he no longer be on its roster, goes from $15.8 million this year to just $2.2 million in 2018.

Schneider made his comments in an interview with KIRO-AM.
