Richard Sherman meets with 49ers, signals free-agent tour has just begun

San Francisco is Sherman's first visit and Pelissero reports that meetings with the team will continue through the afternoon.

The Seahawks also released cornerback Jeremy Lane, another move that had been long rumored.

Sherman, 29, is coming off a 2017 campaign that saw him miss seven games with an Achilles injury.

Patriots fans hoping Richard Sherman would be on his way to New England woke up Saturday to some bad news. He tore his Achilles tendon in November.

Bringing in a player of Sherman's stature would send a strong message that the Panthers want to make another Super Bowl in the final season for Davis and center Ryan Kalil, both of whom have said they will retire after 2018.

"Would I go to a young secondary that is like we were when we were younger and help them grow and help them advance?"

But Sherman said at the Sports Star awards he thought he would be ready for the beginning of mini-camp.

Drafted in 2011, Sherman is a free agent for the first time in his career. Niners general manager John Lynch has plenty of salary-cap space to potentially sign Sherman - roughly $70 million, according to Over The Cap. He told SI.com'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". In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.

San Francisco started the offseason with a $137.5 million pact with impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo.
