Richard Sherman expects to be back with the Seahawks in 2018.
When asked if he had any doubts about returning to the Seahawks next season, Sherman said, "not in my mind." Coming off a torn Achilles that cost him the final seven games of 2017, Sherman will represent himself in contract negotiations. The 29-year-old will earn $11 million in the final year of his deal.

Contract-year CB Richard Sherman plans to represent himself in negotiations with the Seahawks.

"I'm sure we'll have some communication," Sherman said of offseason talks with the 'Hawks. "I'm representing myself. The whole agent thing is really overrated at this point." It's a bold gambit from an unconventional player. Sherman and the Seahawks have appeared headed for a divorce at the end of his current deal but there is plenty of time for that to change. Sherman turns 30 in March.

Recovering from a torn right Achilles' tendon, Richard Sherman will undergo a "clean-up" procedure on his left "ankle/heel area."

Sherman is believed to be dealing with bone spurs. The operation comes with a 4-6 week timetable. If that's all Sherman were recovering from, he would be ready for the offseason program. With his Achilles', Sherman will be questionable for the beginning of training camp. Sherman turns 30 in March, and has one year remaining on his Seahawks contract.
Jan 2 - 2:22 PM

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman (Achilles) mentioned May or June as a possible timetable for his recovery.

Sherman underwent surgery to repair a ruptured Achilles on Wednesday. The operation was performed by Dr. Bob Anderson in Green Bay. If Sherman's timeline is correct, he would likely miss most if not all of OTAs before hopefully returning for the start of training camp. Monday night will end Sherman's streak of 105 consecutive games played.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman has been diagnosed with a ruptured right Achilles' tendon, and is done for the season.

What Sherman seemed to know immediately was quickly confirmed by the Seahawks' team doctors. Sherman said after the game he had been playing through the injury nearly all year, and had been trying to avoid hard cuts. Football players are warriors. Even though Sherman hadn't appeared quite in top form this season, he was still operating as one of the league's best corners. It's a brutal, brutal blow for the Seahawks, who will now move forward with Shaq Griffin, Justin Coleman and Jeremy Lane as their top three corners. Turning 30 next spring, Sherman will also be headed into the final year of his contract.

Richard Sherman suffered a heel injury in Thursday's game against the Cardinals, and is doubtful to return.

The Seahawks announced it as Sherman's heel, but the corner himself was seen mouthing multiple times on the sideline that it was his Achilles'. It certainly looked that way on the field. Sherman was held out of practice this week with an Achilles' issue. If that's indeed what it is, it would be a bitter pill to swallow for a player who has been critical of the player-safety issues presented by Thursday Night Football. It would also be a hammer blow for the Seahawks' defense. Despite a minor drop off in his play, 29-year-old Sherman has remained one of the league's best corners.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Richard Sherman (Achilles) will play Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Sherman is ready to roll for Thursday Night Football despite not practicing this week. He hasn't missed a game since entering the league as a fifth-round pick in 2011.
Thu, Nov 9, 2017 02:08:00 PM

Richard Sherman (Achilles) didn't practice on Wednesday.

This appears to be a new injury as Sherman had previously been listed with a hamstring issue. Sherman hasn't practiced much this season, though he's yet to miss a game or even a defensive snap (204-of-204). In fact, he's never missed a game since entering the league as a fifth-round pick in 2011.

Richard Sherman (hamstring) is active for Week 2 against the 49ers.

Despite sitting out Wednesday and Thursday, this was always the expectation. Sherman being active is a downgrade for Pierre Garcon. Seattle declared OLB Terence Garvin (shoulder), Eddie Lacy, RB J.D. McKissic, OG Jordan Roos, OG Oday Aboushi, FS Tedric Thompson, and OT Isaiah Battle inactive for Week 2.

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (hamstring) is expected to play Week 2 against the 49ers.

Coach Pete Carroll said as much on Friday, so this is not a surprise despite Sherman sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Sherman's presence is a big downgrade for Pierre Garcon, although the veteran receiver should still be fed targets.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects LCB Richard Sherman (questionable, hamstring) to play in Week 2 against the 49ers.

Sherman missed practice early this week, but his status was never in doubt. His presence is a downgrade to Pierre Garcon's matchup. The Seahawks plan to start Michael Wilhoite with OLB Terence Garvin (doubtful, shoulder) sidelined.

Richard Sherman (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Sherman rarely misses practice for any reason, so it's certainly notable. Sherman has never missed a game since entering the league in 2011, but perhaps the 'Hawks will decide to hold him out for what should be an easy victory over the 49ers.
Thu, Sep 14, 2017 07:54:00 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Sherman played all 82 snaps in Sunday's loss to Green Bay, so this is probably just a maintenance day. He's appeared in 97 consecutive games and should extend that streak to 98 Sunday against the Niners.
Wed, Sep 13, 2017 07:38:00 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (thigh) is questionable for Week 1 against the Packers.

He's listed with a thigh injury but practiced fully on Thursday and has never missed a game in his career. If for some reason Sherman can't get the green light for Sunday, it would obviously be an upgrade for the fantasy outlooks of Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams.
Fri, Sep 8, 2017 04:55:00 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman denies having requesting a trade.

Sherman also said he was "not upset" the Seahawks allegedly considered trading him, adding reports of locker-room division in Seattle are "overblown." Sherman took ownership for last year's repeated sideline rants, admitting he "might have gone over the top." Sherman has two years left on his contract.
