Richard Sherman reportedly asked Seahawks to trade him

Richard Sherman: Report: Sherman initially asked to be traded 7 intriguing landing spots for Seattle Seahawks CB Richard Sherman

I don't see a deal getting done, but if it doesn't, this is probably Sherman's previous year in Seattle.

While Sherman doesn't have a no-trade clause like the NBA's Carmelo Anthony, he does have the right to not cooperate or even try to obstruct a trade to a team he doesn't want to join.

"It has been my understanding all along that Richard Sherman was the one who initiated this", Schefter said, according to his colleague Sheil Kapadia.

Like most players, Sherman in not all that well-versed in roster building, and the last thing a smart National Football League decision maker wants to do is give up two valuable assets who would be under cost-effective contracts for one who projects to be one of the highest paid at his particular position. The New England Patriots have reportedly backed off their interest and are expected to retain Malcolm Butler. The Seahawks will likely demand a first round draft pick, and possibly another player, or more picks, in the draft. Sherman lashed out, apparently at defensive coordinator Kris Richard, after the defense gave up a big play during an October game against the Atlanta Falcons.

Simon Gotch Has Officially Been Released From WWE
WWE made a big announcement on Wednesday when it was revealed that former NXT Tag Team Champion Simon Gotch had been released . Poor booking choices and the nearly extinct division on Smackdown Live hurt any potential the two had as a team in the WWE .

As early as Tuesday, there were already confirmed reports that the Seahawks were aggressively looking for trades involving Sherman.

"I think we're a very unique organization in that regard".

Meanwhile, Seahawks GM John Schneider was not shy in admitting that they are open to trading their top corner. While sometimes you can chalk news like this up to nothing more than rumor mill fodder, both the Seahawks and Sherman have stated a trade could happen. We know what's going on. The combination of a Super Bowl contender with the cap space to take on his current contract, the willingness to part with significant assets and then consider a contract extension is going to be tough to find.
