Sherman dined Friday night in Los Gatos with his wife and Shanahan, as first reported by The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II. This will be an ongoing process and I am excited to take on this challenge.

Imagine pondering this thought back in 2014 - the San Francisco 49ers sign cornerback Richard Sherman.

Sherman made it abundantly clear that he wants "to go to a contender" after he was released by the Seahawks with a failed physical designation on Friday.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that "San Francisco is first up on former Seahawks' CB Richard Sherman's visit list - and there's a real chance it's his last visit, too".

The 29-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his National Football League career with the Seahawks, including their Super Bowl winning season of 2013.

Fransen said authorities were working to establish a secure perimeter around the facility, which is home to about 1,000 residents. The Napa County Sheriff's Department issued an alert to residents at 10:30 a.m. warning them to avoid the area.

They've also been linked to Trumaine Johnson, one of the top free agent corners available, and might consider Patriots cornerback Malcolm Butler, Rashaan Melvin of the Colts or Washington's Bashaud Breeland.

The Seahawks on Wednesday traded Michael Bennett to the Eagles and are also expected to soon release defensive end Cliff Avril, who may not be able to play football again after suffering a neck/nerve injury in October that required surgery.

Cap space isn't an issue for the 49ers, who have $70 million, more than all but four other teams, even after recently re-signing quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to a five-year, $137.5 million deal. He told's Albert Breer the Seahawks "wanted the financial flexibility going into free agency but expressed that they wanted me to return and will be in contact".

While T.J. Carrie was the best cornerback the team had last season, he comes into the offseason as an unrestricted free agent.
