Richard Sherman has been one of the most talented, yet outspoken, cornerbacks in the NFL for years now. However, his tenure with the Seattle Seahawks might not be secure as the team let owners know at the NFL owners meetings this week that Sherman was available at the right price. However, the chances of the Seahawks trading Sherman is minimal.

Richard Sherman and his distractions

There is no argument concerning the talent of Richard Sherman on the field, the biggest problem has always been Sherman's actions off the field. Sherman doesn't get into trouble like many players but he is one of the brashest and most outspoken players in the NFL.

He will say anything he has an opinion of and won't hold back no matter how controversial it is. He has faced fines and disciplinary measures for his words and one of the things that anger many fans is that he is incredibly intelligent and well-spoken when he speaks, which makes his words mean almost more. The most recent example of the Seattle Seahawks superstar's mouth was when he was asked about Colin Kaepernick and Sherman didn't hold back. According to Richard, the NFL and many teams have blackballed Kaepernick because of his silent protest last year and refusal to stand during the National Anthem. Much like everything that he says, those words were magnified because of who they came from.

The future of Richard Sherman in the NFL

There is little chance that the Seattle Seahawks trade Richard Sherman. The Seahawks owe Sherman $11.431 million guaranteed this season and $11 million in 2018. That is a hefty sum for a team to take on in a trade. There is also the fact that Sherman struggled in 2016 and Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said that was because Richard went through a lot during the season and was unable to "reset" like he usually does.

According to Carroll, there is little chance that the Seahawks move Sherman to another NFL team but they are always competing and that means moving pieces around. As for Richard Sherman himself, he said he just laughs it off and will let the chips fall where they may.
