One team with rumored interest in Sherman, the New England Patriots, has reportedly stepped back now.

If you haven't heard yet, the Seattle Seahawks are dangling cornerback Richard Sherman as trade bait prior to the 2017 NFL Draft. Sherman has slowly softened to the idea of being traded, at least publicly, pointing to the realities of the business. This report followed acknowledgement from Seahawks general manager John Schnieder that the trade talk surrounding Sherman was real. New reports emerged on Friday that it's the star cornerback who has requested a trade from the start and the Seahawks are just following through his trade demands. Now, another element has been added. So this wasn't just a question of whether Richard Sherman be a good addition for the Colts but more specifically about whether the Colts should pursue him in a trade, assuming a similar asking price to what the Revis trade brought. For those reasons, it's being said that Sherman will agree to be dealt, but only to a contender. The Atlanta Falcons and the Oakland Raiders immediately come to mind, along with the Green Bay Packers and the Carolina Panthers. "He was the one that wanted to be traded initially", said Adam Schefter.

The 29-year-old veteran cornerback - was drafted by the Seattle Seahawks in the fifth round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Stanford - dealt with an MCL injury in the most recent season but still manage to play in all 16 matchups and registered four picks.

Walker said there was "great consensus" on high-risk pools for people with pre-existing conditions, but he didn't go into detail. Lower insurance premiums, Meadows said, "has been, will be, always will be" the primary objective.

"The Seahawks have let it be known they would consider trading Sherman, but only for 'a very good player plus a high draft pick, ' according to an National Football League source", wrote Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald. The truth is quite different though.

Richard Sherman was a key part of the Seahawks squad that won Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014.

The Seahawks still hold all the leverage, with Sherman only able to hold out if he is unhappy.
