They reportedly had a meeting in place with Richard Sherman before the former Seahawks agreed to terms on a three-year deal with the San Francisco 49ers.

Sherman, who acted as his own agent, revealed to ESPN that his new three-year deal with the 49ers is filled with incentives and worth up to $39.15million.

As King points out, if Sherman plays 90 percent of the defensive snaps for San Francisco in 2018 and makes the Pro Bowl, he will earn the same $11 million he was scheduled to make with the Seahawks this year.

The Seahawks declined a chance to match the contract offer Sherman received from the 49ers, according to an account of the negotiations published Monday on Monday Morning Quarterback on (Sherman wrote for the site for a year or so during his Seahawks career).

The New York Giants have formally cut veteran cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie after the two sides were unable to rework his contract. It gives me the ability to control my destiny.

During his seven years in the Northwest, a handful of incidents involving Sherman and the 49ers incited bad blood between the two teams.

Offensive tackle Joe Staley: "As much as I disliked playing against him for years, I know I will love being teammates with him going forward".

Since entering the league in 2011, Sherman has been arguably the most dominant cornerback in the NFL. The Seahawks opted to release Shead and allow him to test free agency instead.

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

San Francisco was able to land Sherman because another deal for a top cornerback fell through. They let me go. This situation was fascinating from all angles, from Sherman's autonomous representation to 49ers general manager John Lynch's direct sales pitch.

"I don't think any agent in the business could have done a better job of negotiating this contract", Sherman told King on Sunday night.

Responding to Lynch's comments, Sherman said: "I'm vengeful in that way.", before explaining his sudden will to stick it to Seattle stemmed from some of the more questionable actions of fans who burned his jersey after learning of his departure. Paraag Marathe, San Francisco's executive vice president of football operations, said Sherman also studied 49ers contracts "and knew who we'd given real guaranteed money to".
