Richard Sherman thanks fans for support after release

2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Richard Sherman

Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Sherman's first free agent visit will not be to Gillette Stadium.

Sherman's release was a cost-cutting move.

It's also questionable when Sherman would actually be available to play.

Sherman, 29, is coming off a 2017 campaign that saw him miss seven games with an Achilles injury. Or perhaps it's Sherman, a rangy 6-foot-3 cornerback who looks to recapture his top form after tearing his right Achilles tendon in November.

The release means Sherman - who is acting as his own agent - can get a head start on finding his next team. And Schefter says it's possible that Sherman, who grew up in California, will stay in the area after his visit.

Sherman was part of five Seahawks playoff teams, appeared in two Super Bowls, and helped Seattle win Super Bowl XLVIII.

But Sherman said at the Sports Star awards he thought he would be ready for the beginning of mini-camp.

At the end of the day, while Sherman certainly would be great addition to the Pats, the team might elect to enter the 2018 Season with a cornerback depth chart headlined by Stephon Gilmore, Eric Rowe and Johnathen Jones. Saleh has implemented a defensive system that is similar to the Seahawks. It is worth noting they have the most cap space in the National Football League, so having the money to sign Sherman should be no problem.

If Melvin doesn't re-sign, the Colts will need to bring in at least one solid cornerback in free agency.

The shedding of Sherman, Bennett and Lane means the Seahawks now have just eight players left on their roster from the 2013 team that won the Super Bowl under contract for the 2018 season - quarterback Russell Wilson, receiver Doug Baldwin, linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright, Chancellor, Thomas, Avril, and punter Jon Ryan.
