The voice of reason: John Clayton “The Professor” on Richard Sherman trade possibility

seahawks article

“The problem with trading Sherman and replacing him with a rookie is the expected drop off in that first year for Seattle’s defense. Let’s say the Seahawks can get a first-rounder and something else for Sherman. Unless they land an experienced starter, they would go into the season with Jeremy Lane, their third corner back last year, as the No. 1. Neiko Thorpe, Perrish Cox, DeAndre Elliott and Pierre Desir would be the main options for the No. 2 and No. 3 spots. Subtract Sherman and the Seahawks might have to get two corners out of this draft.” John Clayton

“Sherman likely staying put. Even though the relationship between Richard Sherman and the front office is strained, don’t expect a trade. Sure, Carroll and Schneider said they’ve heard from teams that checked in to see if he’s available in a trade. Schneider said the team involves itself in a lot of discussion for players. But the Seahawks need to rebuild their cornerback position. Trading Sherman would hurt the team more than help it.” John Clayton
