What would the Steelers have to give up for Richard Sherman?


The Seattle Seahawks have made no secret of making cornerback Richard Sherman available for a trade. That may not have been the case. This report followed acknowledgement from Seahawks general manager John Schnieder that the trade talk surrounding Sherman was real.

"It has been my understanding all along that Richard Sherman was the one who initiated this".

While Sherman doesn't have a no-trade clause like the NBA's Carmelo Anthony, he does have the right to not cooperate or even try to obstruct a trade to a team he doesn't want to join. "The Seahawks were obliging him and his request".

It's also not as if Sherman would come cheaply, trade-compensation-wise. If you bring in Richard Sherman, you'd have to move one of those three inside to play nickel, which means you put Aaron Colvin on the bench.

Sherman, 29, is due $11.4 million this season. "And that's just the team-to-team cost of a potential deal". Any team that wants to sign him would have to give New England a first-round pick.


"I wouldn't want to leave this city and my guys, but I understand it's a business and organizational philosophies change", Sherman said about the recent trade speculation. The Chargers hold the 38th overall pick in the draft, which perhaps would get Seattle's attention - especially if the situation has gotten to the point at which the Seahawks will simply take the best offer they can get. Now, watching Sherman on another team, I love him. This NFL draft is loaded with talent at cornerback and safety, and the Seahawks could potentially use any pick they net in a Sherman deal, as well as the first rounder they already have, to draft some promising young corners.

That's where I would project Sherman going prior to the draft, although I still think he'll remain in Seattle after the two sides work out their problems. The asking for Sherman is high as the team is looking for a draft pick and player in return.

He's proven to be a good player and you'll need all the help you can get in the secondary with how lackluster this Jaguars pass rush is going to be this year and possibly next.
