Report: Seahawks, Richard Sherman haven’t made as much progress as people think

richard sherman 2Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Tuesday that the Seahawks and Richard Sherman have been making significant progress towards a new contract.

Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that isn’t the case.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, multiple reports of significant progress aren’t accurate.  A consensus hasn’t been reached on dollars or terms.

The discussions on a new contract began before the Scouting Combine.  The goal is indeed getting something done before the draft, which starts in 16 days.

It could indeed happen.  As the source explained it, progress has been made but it’s “nowhere near what has been reported.”
