What Would You Give up for Seahawks CB Richard Sherman in a Trade?

New, comments

The Seahawks seem willing to trade their star corner, but what would he be worth to the Chargers?

There has been persistent trade talk about the Seattle Seahawks cornerback for some time now and it is beginning to look more likely that Richard Sherman will find himself traded away.

When the news that he was potentially available first surfaced we reviewed the Chargers cap situation and found that it would be very difficult for them to find the cap room necessary to accommodate Sherman’s $13 million cap hit in 2017. Still, it would not be impossible if they were motivated to do it. Perhaps Gus Bradley might feel that his defense needs the likes of Sherman to work. That in mind, what would you give up for Sherman in a trade if you were Tom Telesco and the Chargers?

Jason Verrett and Casey Hayward are already a fantastic cornerback pairing, but they do not necessarily fit the mold of a Gus Bradley corner. Verrett also has a bit of an injury history. Richard Sherman would be pretty nice to have.

Still, he isn’t coming to Los Angeles unless something crazy happens. But let us know in the comments how you voted in the poll and why.
