Sherman: Garoppolo played big part in my 49ers choice

DeShawn Shead warms up before the game at AT&T Stadium. Shead was re-activated by the Seahawks and is expected to play Sunday

"Instead of getting upset with me for a going to a new team", Sherman tweeted, "how about you get upset with the people who forced me to go".

- November 27, 2014: Sherman intercepts two passes in Seattle's 19-3 Thanksgiving eve win over the 49ers. But the trade-off is huge, because it locks him into $9.05 million per season in 2019 and '20. He's coming off a torn Achilles so it'll be interesting how effective he'll be this season. Schneider declined but told him it was a solid deal, although he might want to tinker with the roster bonuses.

The 49ers didn't want him, either. That has been true since the first start of his National Football League career back in 2011 when he lined up against A.J. Green.

Along the way, Sherman was a thorn in the 49ers side with great plays and pointed comments.

That NFC West certainly has evolved, and while the Seahawks appear in deconstruction mode, Sherman is embracing other drastic changes to a division now championed by the Rams, who acquired their veteran cornerbacks themselves in trading for Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters. That was March 8. And that's when the 49ers became interested in him. But now it's like I abandoned them. "I really appreciated that because it showed their commitment, their excitement". But I wanted to make sure. I had dinner with (head coach) Kyle (Shanahan) and his wife. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh later joined, according to Sherman. It felt natural. It felt good on both sides.

That Detroit wouldn't be willing to pony up for that puts a slight (but strong) limit on how far they're willing to go to upgrade the No. 2 cornerback position.

Deported Odinga ally slams peacetalks with Uhuru as a betrayal
He said they have agreed to stop any dissent immediately and not to allow the country's diversity to kill their nation. Odinga has further stated that the "conflict is over" and called on the country to "reconcile and move on".

He underwent medical tests Saturday before going to the 49ers facility for five hours of negotiations. "We came to an agreement and it was awesome".

The 49ers said Sherman came to the negotiating table prepared: he read through the contracts of all the other top cornerbacks in the league.

Joining the Seahawks most bitter divisional rivals, with whom he's shared multiple fearsome battles, gives him the chance to face his old team twice a year. A three-year deal was finalized over the weekend including a physical in which medical personnel signed off on Sherman's surgically repaired Achilles. And the 49ers easily can cut him after 2018.

On Monday morning, Sherman spoke with Bay Area reporters via conference call and elaborated on the many layers involved in the splashiest move of the early offseason.

I would venture a guess that, given his status as a better player, Sherman on a prove-it deal would have received a one-year offer in the ballpark of $6 million to $7 million with $750,000 to $1 million tied to his being active; maybe another $2 million in high-end incentives.
