Former Seahawks CB Richard Sherman Inks with the Rival 49ers

Friday the Seahawks dumped former defensive captain Richard Sherman, and as expected it didn’t take long for him to find a new team.

Many probably didn’t think he’d end up with one of Seattle’s biggest rivals.

Sherman Saturday agreed to a three-year deal with the up and coming San Francisco 49ers, a deal that could come back to bite the Seahawks considering the two teams play each other twice a season.

“I’m thankful to John [Lynch, 49ers GM] and Kyle [Shanahan, 49ers coach] for believing in me,” Sherman told ESPN’s Josina Anderson. “Some smaller details still getting ironed out, but #ShermInTheBay.”

The three-year deal is worth $39 million, with a five million dollar signing bonus.

The 49ers had met with Sherman earlier Saturday and wanted to make sure he is healing well from a torn Achilles in one leg and a bone spur in the other. On Friday, Sherman told Anderson that he will be back running on the treadmill next week.

Sherman and the 49ers both expect that he will be ready for training camp, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who first reported the agreement between the sides
