Seahawks GM: I don't think the odds of a Richard Sherman trade are very good
John Schneider doesn't see Sherman going anywhere
Seahawks GM John Schneider, about the fact that the Seahawks were not only taking calls on Sherman, but making calls as well, said Friday on ESPN Radio that he does not foresee a Sherman trade happening at this point.
Sherman initiallyof a possible trade, but later began to . That was before it was reported that Sherman was the one that , and not the other way around. Even at that point, though, Sherman acknowledged that there was little chance of a trade.
"Very little chance [a trade] happens, but both sides are listening," Sherman said at the time. "I honestly don't have much more to say about it than what I've already said. We (Sherman and Seahawks management) have a great relationship. … There is a lot of love and respect. There is no bad blood."
Sherman is one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL, but it's possible that the offers in exchange for his services weren't quite up to snuff because there is a perception -- right or wrong -- that he is partly a creation of the Seahawks' system. Seattle plays a lot of Cover-3, so the in-breaking routes that give taller corners like Sherman trouble often aren't his responsibility in coverage. On another team, that might not be the case.
Still, the Seahawks may have tried at various times to deal him, but that doesn't mean they won't happily benefit from having him on the field next season.
