"Speaking to John Lynch, he made it sound like - remember, the Niners have a boatload of money under this salary cap to pursue free agents - that they are not going to go after any of what Lynch likes to say, 'the splash names, '" Wyche reported on Monday.
Shead tore his ACL in Seattle's playoff loss to the Falcons in 2017 and only played in two games a year ago.
Sherman shouted. "When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that's the result you gonna get!"
"I'm vengeful that way ... vengeful", Sherman said in an interview with Peter King of the MMQB.
Sherman, however, suffered a ruptured Achilles last fall, and whether he'll be able to return to top form is unknown.
"I've spent a lot of time wearing a red jersey in the Bay, so I'm sure I'll figure that out", he responded, via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.
Sherman's decision was made not long after Seahawks officially announced that they have released Sherman on March 9. "It was such a great opportunity".
Injuries aside, Sherman - once considered enemy No. 1 of the 49ers fanbase - was asked how he'd adjust to a once-hostile crowd. Though the $2 million in per-game compensation is high, his earning potential is about $1.5 million-$2 million higher than that of the standard contract.
Sherman also took to Twitter earlier today to address all the backlash he has gotten so far in the wake of going from the Seahawks to their hated rival in the 49ers. He has been an All-Pro selection three times and was named to five straight Pro Bowls before an Achilles injury ended his 2017 season.
The San Francisco 49ers and Richard Sherman agreed to a heavily incentivized three-year contract. "He was a guy who came out with similar measurables to me, you know, height and weight, and things like that". I helped the organization get to a great place and stay there. "And now they've got to build it all the way back up and are energized, I think from the inside, to do so". Sherman waves goodbye to 49ers fans filing out of Levi's Stadium.
One angry fan posted a video of himself burning his Richard Sherman Jersey. "I didn't abandon anybody". "I'm thankful, and it's motivation for me".
The most enduring image of Sherman for 49ers fans, though, is from a Thanksgiving game at Levi's Stadium in 2014. He's familiar with the defensive scheme and the coordinator running it, Robert Saleh, a former Seahawks assistant who joined Sherman, Sherman's fiancee Ashley and coach Kyle Shanahan at Friday night's recruitment dinner in Los Gatos.
