Sherman: ‘Very little chance a trade happens’

Despite GM John Schneider’s confirmation that a trade of Richard Sherman remains a possibility, the cornerback said Thursday there is very little chance of that happening.

Richard Sherman responded to trade rumors.

At first, Richard Sherman laughed off the notion that the Seahawks might trade him. But Sherman wasn’t laughing Wednesday when Seattle GM John Schneider confirmed to 710 ESPN Seattle that a trade was a possibility. But the cornerback still believes that such a development is unlikely to occur.

“What you’ve seen lately in the news is real,” Schneider told 710 ESPN Seattle’s “Brock and Salk” show. “That’s on both sides.

“(Sherman) knows what’s going on. We know what’s going on. I don’t know if anything would ever happen. But like I tell people all the time, 98 percent of the deals that we’re involved with, we don’t follow through with. But at least we’ve opened that door, gone down the road and seen what’s behind Door A or Door B.”

Sherman responded publicly Thursday.

“Very little chance it happens, but both sides are listening,” Sherman told Albert Breer of The MMQB.com in a text message. “I honestly don’t have much more to say about it than what I’ve already said. We have a great relationship. There is a lot of love and respect. There is no bad blood.”

Sherman also told Breer that he doesn’t believe the Seahawks are “sending him a message.”

“Not at all,” Sherman wrote. “I’m not in the least bit concerned about that.”

According to Pro Football Focus, Sherman ranked 10th among all cornerbacks last season, but earned the lowest pass-coverage grade of his career. PFF says Sherman’s pass-coverage grades have declined in each of the past three seasons. Sherman also played at least half of last season with a then-undisclosed MCL injury, which might explain some of his struggles, especially in changing direction.

Sherman turned 29 last week and has two years left on a contract that carries cap figures of $13.6 million in 2017 and $13.2 million in 2018.

Sherman had two notable sideline blowups last season that led to what coach Pete Carroll described as “internal” discipline.

    Last season got ugly, but Richard Sherman has credit in the bank with regard to deserving getting another chance. He’s our very own classic shut down corner, he’s a hell of a good kid and citizen, we’re proud to have him and those that can’t let his immature or questionable behavior go need to back off. He will come around.

      No coach in the NFL gives more rope than Carroll. if that isn’t enough for Sherman, he’s leaving Seattle with little choice.

    If the Seahawks are interested in dealing how about a package of Marshawn Lynch and Richard Sherman to the Raiders for cash, draft choices, and a player or two. Go large or go home. Seahawks, stop the tease.

      The Seahawks aren’t teasing. They’re responding to their players. If Sherman doesn’t want to play here, of Lynch doesn’t want to play here, then the Seahawks need to make the best of it.

        Do you know Sherman doesn’t want to play for the Seahawks? Does he see greener grass with another team?

        I think it’s clear Lynch would like to play for the Raiders. Seems the Hawks want his signing bonus and other compensation.
