Richard Sherman has been very outspoken when it comes to the behind-the-scenes of the NFL. He's been on twitter a lot lately talking about the possibility of himself and teammate Earl Thomas being traded.
Jeremy Lane tweeted something this morning that was pretty easy to decode: does this mean Sherm is leaving the Hawks?? What's the text he's talking about? Also.. why is he tweeting this out LOL
That text message got my heart hurting ... damn 25 was my Dawg #WhatsNext— jeremy lane (@StayingInMyLane) March 7, 2018
Shortly after Lane tweeted, Kam Chancellor shared this instagram post that's a little less obvious, but still a very clear nod to #25.
Richard reportedly has responded saying "I'm good. Not sure what that's about.. Haven't been told anything."
#Seahawks CB Richard Sherman just text me, "I'm good. Not sure what that's about...Haven't been told anything," in reference to Jeremy Lane's tweet.— Josina Anderson (@JosinaAnderson) March 7, 2018
Ian from our sister station KJR has some interesting insight. With Richard representing himself (no agent) he could be anticipating that he will not be with the Hawks and potentially has been letting his teammates know ahead of time.
Spoke to Seahawks spokesman. Nothing to report. Yet. Doesn't mean there isn't something coming soon re: Sherman. Also, remember he represents himself. Changes dynamic of relationship and any negotiations that may or may not be taking place.— Ian Furness (@IanFurnessSea) March 7, 2018
Is it all hear-say at this point?! Probably. But clearly something is stirring up all of these rumors and tweets.
#Seahawks CB Richard Sherman has told teammates goodbye over the past 24 hours, sources say, and that he won’t be on the team. Those close to him say nothing is set in stone and there has been no official word. But clearly bears watching.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 7, 2018
If Sherm really is meeting with Pete today, him supposedly saying goodbye to his teammates right now is no coincidence. Richard is a smart guy, and whatever he has planned, I'm sure he's thought through it completely.
#Seahawks star Richard Sherman is scheduled to meet with coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider later today to discuss his future, I'm told.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) March 7, 2018
It would be heartbreaking to lose #25 from our beloved Seahawks roster. With rumors of most of our LOB leaving, can you see the Hawks ever having another season like that 2013 run?
For now, all we can do is speculate and wait to see what unfolds!
UPDATED: Mama Sherman seems to have confirmed that her son will no longer be playing for the Seahawks.. do we take this as our answer?
