Richard Sherman and Seahawks still a ways apart in contract talks

While cornebrack Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks have made progress towards a new deal the two are not on the verge of a new deal.

Sherman and the Seahawks have been talking about a new deal since the Scouting Combine began but NBC’s Pro Football Talk says that earlier reports about the level of progress have been overstated. The two sides have not reached a “consensus” on the “dollars or terms.”

The two sides have over two weeks to get something done prior to the NFL Draft.

Sherman is on the verge of cashing in on a huge payday which should allow him to become the highest paid corner in the league, topping Darrelle Revis’ current $12 million salary.

Sooner or later the Seahawks will also be forced to sign quarterback Russell Wilson and safety Earl Thomas to new deals.
