REPORT: Seahawks willing to TRADE Richard Sherman

35 posts in this topic

Probably not for what they will want IMHO.  Now if it was say just a 3rd or 4th rounder, then perhaps.  But I doubt they will just let him walk for that low of a pick.  I would assume at least one 1st rounder would have to be offered?  I'm not sure how well he fits our scheme either.

We seem to have a need at CB high on our draft board, from what I've read. Sherman is also age 28, which fits Ballard's apparent trend of recent signing's (excluding Butler), so it wouldn't be completely unusual for the Colts to pursue him. It would take probably a 1st rounder though, but if we're using that on a CB anyways, for an age 28 player, maybe it wouldn't be too crazy.

Highly doubt it lol plus there'd have to be something wrong for them to trade thier best corner

I think Sherman was also hurt for several weeks to end the year last season.

 

Also no way this happens with us, I highly doubt Ballard would go there......like really doubt it.

You have to ask why they are open to trading for him. It's either 1) he's not as good as perceived or 2) they see the CB talent in this draft and know they can replace him with a 1st round pick from a trade.

So if they want a first round pick for him I would pass and potentially use that pick on a CB

I'll trade Dwayne Allen straight up for Richard Sherman.

 

Oh wait.........

 

 

(sorry I promise sometime this offseason I stop with the Allen jokes)

We are not in win now mode, so we are probably not adding salary.

Would he fit our man to man scheme? We don't really have any outstanding safety's that will help him out like Seattle does.

That's a good point.

He's a good player though but I would just be worried how he would fit in our defense. I'm pretty sure we take a corner in the lower rounds of the draft. We're kinda wide open there.

For a second rounder, yes. Like Superman pointed out, he does not have much guaranteed money left on his contract and I believe he can give us 2 years easily. Besides, it is not like we play man-to-man all the time. Even Vontae Davis gets safety help (however good or bad it might be) sometimes and there is plenty of zone that we play, mixing up Cover 2 and Cover 3 at times, IMO.

 

Some of you guys act like he is a bum without good safety help which he is not. The bigger issue, more than his money and skills, would be whether he fits in the Midwest profile of laying low, which he hands down WILL NOT. :)  However, for a soft team like ours lacking attitude on D, he might be good.

Doesn't Sherman excel at zone defense while we use a man to man philosophy with our corners?

 

I don't think he'd fit into our defense all that well.

 

I'd much rather go to the draft.

The David Parry profile of laying low?

If he leaves Seattle, he loses out on getting ignored for pass interference calls at home in their stadium.

Seahawks play mostly pattern matching cover 3. Sherman's role is closer to man to man corner than typical zone corner.

 

I'd rather go to the draft but not because I'd have doubts about Shermans abilities outside of Seattle.

That actually sounds funny but it's true. Seattle gets BIG TIME CALLS in Seattle. And we saw it vs. Atlanta last year in Seattle.

id give our second for sherman, i dont see why the seahawks would take it though

 

i would not give our first for him at this time, i would want to wait until draft day and see what the board looks like

 

we could get a good corner with that pick ourselves

 

plus sherman mostly plays zone

I am actually surprised the Texans dont entertain offers on Watt.  He has back issues and he may never be the same.  They could get some value out of him. A 1 and a 3 or something like that.  And they were pretty good without him.

I agree...but Ithink he could adjust to being on 'an island'

   He was hurt late last year....and his attitude is  well.....volatile.....

.....but what's our pick...#15?    I'd take that trade if Seattle really wants to move him;

I believe he is the best corner in the league and his man coverage ability is underrated. He has been used to shadow opponents' number one and has been great in that role, he's just better as a cover 3 left cornerback. That said, I wouldn't want to give up a first for him. I would for a second, but I doubt Seattle would take anything less than a first.

why wouldnt you give up the 15th pick ion the draft for a 'lets just say above average' starting cornerback in his prime?

I think that's sarcasm, but he's definitely better than above average. He may be in his prime but how long does that prime last? He'll be turning 29 in a few days and corners tend to start falling off a bit around 30. He has a cap hit of $13 million for the next two years, then when he's 30 he'll still cost a lot of money to keep. It's just too much of a risk for me. It may be cliche, but I want to build through the draft. Trading for him would not be what puts us on top so I wouldn't be willing to offer more than a second.

And the Buffalo game too where Sherman tried to kill the field goal kicker and no call. 

 

 

This past year, Seattle was heavily penalized repeatedly against the Saints on the road in the Superdome. They lost that game and Sherman complained about the refs. They also had similar calls against Green Bay. When Seattle is at home, they can get away with murder.

Swap of #1 picks with MAYBE a 5th thrown in. It's not just the talent it's the big contract to.

No thanks.

 

Not worth the loss of draft picks, the big contract (11/12m per the next 2 years), the headache of having him in the locker room, his media coverage, the constant PI calls he'd get for the assault and battery on wideouts that he somehow gets away with in Seattle.

 

The CB class is loaded. We don't need a high priced, grabby 29yo CB.

Maybe a few years ago.. but not now. Not unless they would take a mid round pick.

    • This info came out this week.     This is the first chance I've had to post it as I do every year.         Here is the actual roster with updated weights.       I printed out a roster after the draft and have now made notes about how much weight has been either lost or gained by our players.   http://www.colts.com/team/roster.html   I'm also going to write it up here....    the roster is for you to use as a cross reference...   Hope you enjoy!                 Aiken                  216      +1 Alie-Cox             267      +7 Anderson           301      +1 Ayers                 247      -8 Banner              358       -2 Basham             266      +4 Binford               185 Blackmon          185   Bond                 299       -3 Bostic               245   Boyd                 293      -17 Bray                  183      -3 Briggs                230 Brown                196 Butler                 192      +4 Castanzo            311 Clark                  311      -8 Cooper              311      +5 Crossan            203      +1 Daniels             246       -1 Davis                207 ]Dorsett            185 Doyle                262      -5 Edwards           271      -4 Farley               209       -1 Ferguson         205       +5 Geathers         220 George            234   Good               345     -10 G ore               212      -5 Graham          208 Green             211      +6 Haeg              305      +1 Hairston         195      +2 Hankins         325      +5 Hennessy      246 HIghtower     200 HIlton            178 Hooker          212      +7 Howard         214      -7 Hunt              298     +3 Jackson        234     +4 Jeter             251 Kelly             309 Langford      299      -6 Locke           208      +12 Luck             240 Mack           210        -3 McGill         299       -11 Melvin         196       +3 Mewhort      305       -7 Milton          196       +6 Mingo          239       -1 Mitchell        192       +9 Moncrief      216       -6 Morris         186        -2 Morrison      241      +6 Morris          219       +1 Mount         253        +4 Muir            309    Natson       153        -6 Parry          317       +7 Pope          205  Powell        211  Redmond   300       +5 Rhodes      238      -4 Ridgewawy 318     +1     Rogers        184     +4 Sanchez      195 Schwenke    310     -5 Sheard         265 Sickels         252     -9 Simon          250     -10 Smith           197     -8 Spence        231 Stewart        333     -14 Swoope       258     +1 Thomas       282    -10 Tolzien        215     +2 Ugokwe      315     -6 Vinatieri      212     +6 vujonvich    300 Walker        242     +7 Walker        216 Wlliams      260     +13 Wilson        206      -7 Woods       330      +23 Wylie          309   Griffey        209 Michael      220  
    • I love the talent in their def but I think luck had Wades number lol he's eaten up his defense  in wins/losses
    • A punch to the gut was how it was said to be by Pritchard. Bird sure left Pritchard a total mess. None of this is surprising to me about how the NBA direction is going. None of this is ever going to change as long as there is not a hard cap and the NBA gets paid for super stars getting put on the same teams. This started years ago with the Celtics. They always had the best teams money could buy and then when the cap come in they invented what is called the Larry Bird exception. Then the NBA seen the chance to cash in by letting teams pay them for going over the cap. Then the owners were getting paid by high dollar TV deals and couldn't care less about putting winners on the court as long as they were making money. Now the NBA is made popular by fans who really are not interested in watching basketball played in it's original form. All they want now is highlight dunks and three pointers. Defense has been lost forever right along with traditional basketball. Sad for those who remember the real basketball.
    • Fact is Pagano went 8-8 without Luck after using 5 different QBs with one of them coming right off the street. But it's things like this that gets overlooked by those who choose to. Moral superiority?? You have to be joking. That's even taking it over the top and is getting to the point of pure unaltered childishness.
    •     Sounds like we are seriously considering Lance Stephenson at starting point guard if Jeff Teague's     price is to high..   ..I know he's motivated to play hard and well but that's not something I'd be considering
