Should the Jaguars trade for Richard Sherman?

Richard Sherman

In case of "everybody is available for the right price", it was easy to dismiss initial rumors the Seattle Seahawks would trade cornerback Richard Sherman.

For weeks, Richard Sherman has publicly wanted out of the Seattle Seahawks organization, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Sherman seems to want to be traded as well. "The Seahawks were obliging him and his request", Schefter says. Financial details aside, I would give a first and a sixth for Sherman, but wouldn't give anything higher than that. Now 29 years old might not be old by normal standards, in fact it's not even THAT old by football standards, but in terms of being an elite level defensive back it's fair to question how much he has left in the tank. Also, as we've mentioned above, the Jaguars just signed A.J. Bouye to a $67.5 million contract with $26 million fully guaranteed, and adding Sherman's $11.4 million to that in 2017 might be overkill at the position. I just figured the Seahawks were just doing what all smart teams do and keeping their ears open. Getting Sherman would have been redundant and the Patriots are contented with having Gilmore as their starting CB plus possibly another top defensive player in Malcolm Butler. Also, it will take a first-round pick and likely another pick (Tampa Bay gave up a first and a fourth for Darrelle Revis in 2013) to get Sherman. Sherman is a four-time Pro Bowler and a three-time first-team All-Pro, and he's been terrific during his six seasons in Seattle.

Sherman will probably end up suiting up for the Seahawks next season if they fail to find a serious trading partner, but anything can happen this offseason.

Sad that Sindh is not a part of India: LK Advani
The PM reportedly offered prayers for the prosperity and harmony of her country, and for strong bilateral ties with India. Mamata's opposition to water share appears to be the biggest stumbling block to reaching an agreement on the Teesta River.

That's where I would project Sherman going prior to the draft, although I still think he'll remain in Seattle after the two sides work out their problems.

Then there's Sherman's contract.

New England Patriots- After giving up their first round pick to the Saints for Brandin Cooks the Patriots are empty when it comes to the picks, but the Patriots are one of the teams that expressed interest in Sherman. As well, if the Seahawks are looking to continue this run of success, they need to accumulate some draft capital or acquire some promising young players. What you've seen lately in the news is real.
