Did you buy a Richard Sherman Seahawks' jersey, only to find out this week he was released and then signed by the 49ers?

Sherman, arguably the most hated opposing player in recent 49ers history, signed a three-year deal reportedly worth up to $39.1 million with the 49ers on Saturday.

Sherman, who negotiated his own contract, described the few days after being released by Seattle as "chaos".

Whether or not you agree with the deal Sherman secured, there's plenty of debate over how it was constructed and negotiated, and it seems at least one National Football League player isn't afraid to voice his opinion.

The announcement came after they apparently reached the opposite conclusion of the USA intelligence community. Joaquin Castro, D-Texas, told NPR's Morning Edition on Tuesday, criticizing Republicans' approach.

Richard Sherman's departure from Seattle hasn't been without fireworks.

On his first conference call with the Bay Area media on Monday, Sherman was asked about Witherspoon.

"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". According to Spotrac.com, they should have more than $50 million to work with after Weston Richburg's signing.

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. "So I appreciated him being willing to give me a chance at it". If he's named an All-Pro, which is slightly more hard then getting voted to the Pro Bowl, then Sherman will earn another $2 million. "He and [Rams coach] Sean McVay, and I told him such".

WICKET! Williamson's starting to find his timing, hitting Wood for a handsome square drive for his first boundary. At one stage he pumped five sixes from eight balls off Ish Sodhi who finished with one for 78 from 7.4 overs.

But in evaluating the Niners' ability to become a contender, Sherman saw an ideal match between Garoppolo and coach Kyle Shanahan.

General manager John Lynch and the entire 49ers front office have kept themselves busy this offseason. In discussing what he was seeking in his next team, Sherman made it abundantly clear he wanted to go only to a team he felt could contend.

Not too long ago, San Francisco was considered a cellar-dwelling franchise devoid of talent with a long road ahead to relevance. The 49ers have skin in the game. "If one job fires you and another job offers you a great position I highly doubt most ppl would go back to the old job for a lot less money".
