Richard Sherman (hamstring) is active for Week 2 against the 49ers.
Despite sitting out Wednesday and Thursday, this was always the expectation. Sherman being active is a downgrade for Pierre Garcon. Seattle declared OLB Terence Garvin (shoulder), Eddie Lacy, RB J.D. McKissic, OG Jordan Roos, OG Oday Aboushi, FS Tedric Thompson, and OT Isaiah Battle inactive for Week 2. Sep 17 - 3:02 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (hamstring) is expected to play Week 2 against the 49ers.

Coach Pete Carroll said as much on Friday, so this is not a surprise despite Sherman sitting out Wednesday and Thursday. Sherman's presence is a big downgrade for Pierre Garcon, although the veteran receiver should still be fed targets.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects LCB Richard Sherman (questionable, hamstring) to play in Week 2 against the 49ers.

Sherman missed practice early this week, but his status was never in doubt. His presence is a downgrade to Pierre Garcon's matchup. The Seahawks plan to start Michael Wilhoite with OLB Terence Garvin (doubtful, shoulder) sidelined.
Sep 15 - 5:17 PM

Richard Sherman (hamstring) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

Sherman rarely misses practice for any reason, so it's certainly notable. Sherman has never missed a game since entering the league in 2011, but perhaps the 'Hawks will decide to hold him out for what should be an easy victory over the 49ers.
Sep 14 - 7:54 PM

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (hamstring) didn't practice on Wednesday.

Sherman played all 82 snaps in Sunday's loss to Green Bay, so this is probably just a maintenance day. He's appeared in 97 consecutive games and should extend that streak to 98 Sunday against the Niners.

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman (thigh) is questionable for Week 1 against the Packers.

He's listed with a thigh injury but practiced fully on Thursday and has never missed a game in his career. If for some reason Sherman can't get the green light for Sunday, it would obviously be an upgrade for the fantasy outlooks of Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams.

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman denies having requesting a trade.

Sherman also said he was "not upset" the Seahawks allegedly considered trading him, adding reports of locker-room division in Seattle are "overblown." Sherman took ownership for last year's repeated sideline rants, admitting he "might have gone over the top." Sherman has two years left on his contract.

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.

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.
May 4 - 1:39 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 2:23 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 5:45 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 12:54 PM

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.
Apr 12 - 8:55 AM

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.
