LOS ANGELES CA – DECEMBER 31 Aldrick Robinson

Richard Sherman on Monday said his recent release and doubts whether he can regain his Pro Bowl form have reignited "that gasoline fire that I've always had burning".

"Vengeful", Sherman said. "I love the fan base to death, and I loved playing there". "I'm thankful, and it's motivation for me". Though specific terms of the contract have not been made public, Sherman disclosed certain guarantees can roll over into the next year should he make the Pro Bowl. For 2019, his base salary would jump another $1 million if he were to make the upcoming Pro Bowl. The swift nature of the process - within 28 hours of being released, Sherman had joined a division rival - left many questions regarding the thought process behind the first splashy transaction of the offseason.

Although Sherman's effectiveness at getting a maximum contract may be questionable - his signing bonus with the 49ers was a mere $3 million - the money he saved by acting as his own agent may make up for what he wasn't able to get from San Francisco. I helped the organization get to a great place and stay there.

Last season, the 49ers' pass defence ranked 24th in the league in yards allowed per attempt with 7.2, 22nd in yards allowed per game with 235 and 24th in passer rating allowed with 93.9. I have skin in the game. John had already informed DeShawn that his contract was expiring after this year, and the Seattle Seahawks are just living up to their word. I couldn't feel secure in my contract.

"We had something no other team could offer ... the ability to play Seattle twice a year".

The Niners are making moves to become contenders again and are looking for a big comeback year from Sherman.

The 49ers are in an awkward spot on this. They refused and will now have to look at Sherman on the opposite sideline at least twice in 2018. Instead, the move is created to keep a favor to a player who has been a favorite of coaches and teammates since arriving in the league as an undrafted free agent in 2012 and Foster said the Seahawks have made it clear they hope to keep Shead in Seattle.

Consider this quote from Marathe: "This is how much Richard studied this". "We know he can play corner and we like the way he plays at corner, but everything is open".

That Detroit wouldn't be willing to pony up for that puts a slight (but strong) limit on how far they're willing to go to upgrade the No. 2 cornerback position.

Hang on a second, Paraag.

After a seemingly amicable parting between the four-time All Pro and the Seahawks organisation, Sherman revealed to Peter King of the MMQB that his reasons for linking up with the 9ers were "vengeful".

No one knows for sure how Sherman's voice will represent this new era of 49ers football.
