What would you pay if you were another team for the services of Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman?
According to NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport last week, Seattle is trying to set a “very high price” for Sherman, Chris Wesseling of NFL.com reports.
“Potentially a first-round pick,” Rapoport explained. “Potentially a very good player on a low contract and a pick as well.”
Rapoport emphasized that the two sides maintain a high degree of mutual respect, which is reflected in the exorbitant price tag.
Appearing on Tuesday’s edition of Good Morning Football, NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo doubled down on that message, stressing that it will take a first-round draft pick and another mid-round pick to coax Seattle into parting with Sherman.
“We’re talking Darrelle Revis Jets-to-Buccaneers type of deal,” Garafolo added. “That’s what’s going to get this thing done.”
