Report: Richard Sherman expected to ask for a new contract

richard shermanAccording to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, with Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman scheduled to go into the final year of his current deal,  he’s expected to ask Seattle for a new contract.

Sherman is due to make $1.389 million in 2014. Darrelle Revis makes $1 million.  Per game.

And so it’s believed Sherman will ask the Seahawks to reconfigure his contract.  Per a league source, the request has not yet come.

The thinking is that Sherman and his agent hope to let the Seahawks formulate a plan for keeping (or not) their impending free agents.  With the 2014 offseason program still weeks away, which gives both sides plenty of time to address Sherman’s contract.

Seattle needs to take care of Sherman at some point this offseason.  Without his dominant play on the field, they don’t win the Super Bowl.
