ESPN's Seth Wickersham reports there are still major tensions between Richard Sherman and coach Pete Carroll.
Sherman believes the Seahawks should have won multiple Super Bowls by now, and is concerned about the team's chemistry. In particular, Sherman has been upset at Carroll's unwillingness to critique Russell Wilson and the offense while the defense is forced to play at near perfection. Sherman has been vocal since the Seahawks lost the Super Bowl, including telling friends that he imagined playing for the Cowboys or Patriots with Marshawn Lynch. Despite the long feud and trade rumors, Sherman remains on the Seahawks and will remain a leader on one of the league's best defenses. May 25 - 10:32 AM

Speaking Thursday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll classified the Richard Sherman trade talks as dead.

The draft was always the de facto deadline. Carroll did leave the door slightly ajar for a too-good-to-be-true offer down the road. "But people can always call you, and there were some people, there were some conversations," Carroll said. "I don't think they're going to change. I don't think anybody's going to offer us anything that would make it worthwhile because there's no draft involved and all that kind of stuff." 2017 will be Sherman's seventh year in Seattle.

Richard Sherman reported to Seahawks voluntary workouts on Monday.

Per GM John Schneider, Sherman also had a "great meeting" with coach Pete Carroll last week. Sherman was absent from the first week of voluntary workouts, but it didn't appear related to bad blood over trade talks. Both sides have been frank about a potential deal, at times appearing to welcome the idea, but it appears Sherman will remain in Seattle for 2017. Schneider said the organization has "kind of moved past" the possibility.

Speaking in a Thursday radio interview, Seahawks GM John Schneider downplayed the chances of Richard Sherman getting traded.

"Right now, I don't think the odds are very good," Schneider said. "But if somebody comes cruising along and something happens, and we do something, it happens." Schneider is correct that a trade remains unlikely, but it's remarkable how openly the Seahawks continue to talk about dealing their star corner. We wouldn't rule anything out ahead of next week's draft.

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports "nobody has come close to meeting" the Seahawks' asking price of a first- and third-round pick for Richard Sherman.

Per Garofolo, were a trade to take place, it would likely be during the first or second night of the draft. The odds continue to be billed as low that Sherman gets dealt, but the fact that things have gotten and stayed this public suggests a fairly strong possibility.

MMQB's Albert Breer reports Richard Sherman will not attend the Seahawks' voluntary workouts this week.

This will be blown out of proportion because of the trade talk surrounding Sherman, but the reality is many veterans choose to skip voluntary work every year. Breer reports Sherman will report to the team in "early/mid-May, before OTAs" begin. Despite the noise, it still seems unlikely Sherman is traded.

ESPN's Dan Graziano suggests the Raiders as a potential landing spot for Richard Sherman.

It was more of a "this team makes sense" statement from Graziano, as he notes Raiders DC Ken Norton coached the linebackers in Seattle before joining Oakland's staff. With Sherman, teams are going to want him to fit their scheme. Sherman has been playing Cover-3 his entire career in Seattle, and Norton runs a similar defense in Oakland. The Raiders are absolutely in win-now mode.

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo reports no one has "come close" to the Seahawks' asking price for Richard Sherman.

Per Garofolo, the Seahawks will not accept less than a first-rounder and "mid-round pick." As is almost always the case this time of year, Garafolo doesn't expect anything to happen before draft week.
Apr 11 - 6:04 PM

NFL Network's Mike Garofolo believes it would take a first-round pick and a "mid-round pick" to land Richard Sherman in a trade.

In Garofolo's words, it would be a Darrelle Revis Jets-to-Bucs type of deal. Tampa acquired Revis for a first-rounder and fourth-rounder that could turn into a third-rounder in 2013. Garofolo ultimately expects Sherman to remain in Seattle. That remains the most-likely outcome, but any time trade talks become this public, there's a real chance they come to fruition.

USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports Richard Sherman "isn't going anywhere" unless a team "blows away" the Seahawks with a trade offer.

"The Seahawks want a lot to part with Sherman," Pelissero writes. "I’ve heard it might take something like first- and third-round picks." Previous reports had Seattle looking for a high pick and a "very good player," but two high picks would likely get the job done. That said, Pelissero does not expect those offers to come, and he reports both sides are "good" with staying together for another season. The 29-year-old corner is owed $22.4 million over the final two years of his contract.

ESPN's Rich Cimini doesn't see Richard Sherman as a fit for the Jets.

Neither do we. Sherman reportedly wants out of Seattle but acquiring an expensive 29-year-old would do little to help the Jets' rebuilding movement. The Jets do have a need at corner but they're more likely to address it in the draft than through a blockbuster trade. Sherman is due $22.4 million over the final two years of his contract.

Appearing on SportsCenter, ESPN's Adam Schefter said "it has been my understanding all along" that Richard Sherman "initiated this" and asked to be traded.

"The Seahawks were obliging him and his request," said Schefter. A bit of a hot-head, Sherman likely was still upset with coach Pete Carroll for getting after him a couple of times, or Sherman may have asked for a contract extension behind the scenes and was denied by GM John Schneider. Either way, it doesn't sound like Sherman is going to be dealt this year, but it's possible this is his last season in Seattle.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport confirms the Seahawks are likely seeking a high draft pick and "potentially a very good player on a low contract" in Richard Sherman trade talks.

The Miami Herald had it first on Thursday morning. Even for a player of Sherman's caliber, teams will almost never part with both a premium player and pick. It's one or the other, typically a pick. A first-rounder could be the best Seattle could hope for.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports the Seahawks are not just fielding calls on Richard Sherman, and have "initiated trade talks."

Per Fowler, the talks have "ranged from fact-finding to more serious discussions." Fowler reports "multiple people in the league have concluded" acquiring Sherman would likely require parting with a high draft pick. The Miami Herald has reported it would take both a high pick and "very good player." The Seahawks are wise to set an initial high price, but seem more eager to move Sherman than they've been letting on. A divorce could be becoming inevitable.

The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports the Seahawks want "a very good player plus a high draft pick" for Richard Sherman.

The trade cost is in addition to the $22.4 million Sherman is owed over the next two years and the long-term extension the 29-year-old likely would request from his new team. Salguero also believes Sherman "has some leverage in deciding where he would play," which likely eliminates any non-contenders from the running. Considering the price, Sherman's assertion there is "very little chance" he gets traded seems well founded.
