Richard Sherman, Seattle Seahawks agree to four-year, $57.4 million extension

Wednesday afternoon just a little over 24 hours until they pick 32nd in the NFL Draft, the Seattle Seahawks dropped some major news on the league as they have signed CB Richard Sherman to a new four-year, $57.4 million extension, effectively making him the highest paid at his position in the entire league.

Sherman confirmed the news via his twitter account.

This is the second big signing the Seahawks have made for their secondary this offseason, just a few weeks removed from making Earl Thomas the highest paid safety in the NFL. The ‘Legion of Boom’ is not going anywhere, anytime soon.

For as much as people may not like some of his antics when a microphone is in front of him, there’s no doubt that Sherman has earned the distinction since coming into the league of being looked at as the best at his position.

With this being out of the way now, Thomas and Sherman being signed, the team can now make another run toward a Super Bowl title which would be their second in a row. Next year, financially, their attention will turn to quarterback Russell Wilson as the franchise continues to try and build this generation’s NFL dynasty.
