Richard Sherman became eligible for a new contract back on Dec. 29, but as of now, he has not discussed a new contract with the Seahawks, according to ProFootballTalk.
Sherman is due to make $1.389 million in 2014 and has one year remaining from his rookie contract. Sherman was a fifth-round pick out of Stanford in 2011.
Earl Thomas is also in the final year of his contract and, per NFL.com, Thomas will be a priority over Sherman for a “big-money deal.” Many Seahawks called Thomas, not Sherman, the “leader” of the best defense in the league, according to NFL.com.
Michael Bennett could also be due big money, but he said on Tuesday that he would not be willing to take less money to stay with the Super Bowl champs.
“There is no such thing as a discount,” Bennett said on the NFL Network. “This is not Costco, this is not Walmart — this is real life.”
There are a lot of players who want big money on the Seahawks right now. Time will tell who gets it and who doesn’t.
