Seahawks GM not crazy about players acting as own agents

Seahawks GM not crazy about players acting as own agents

The Seattle Seahawks have been burned a couple of times when players represent themselves in contract negotiations. It first occurred when offensive lineman Russell Okung acted as his own agent back in 2016 and ended up signing with the Denver Broncos. Then, two years later, cornerback Richard Sherman went into contract talks without representation, and […] The post Seahawks GM not crazy about players acting as own agents appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Seahawks DL says Weston Richburg cried during a game

Oh boy... If you’ve followed the San Francisco 49ers long enough, you know the Seattle Seahawks love to get under the skin of players and fans. I don’t need to bring up the feud that started everything with Richard Sherman and the NFC Championship game and things spiraled from there. After Jim Harbaugh left, the rivalry started to simmer a bit and when Richard Sherman left it outright died. Well, this ought to bring things up a notch. 950 AM KJR, a Seattle sports station had Seahawks defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson on their Cliff and Puck show. Where it gets interesting is when...

And maybe Tre Flowers could in fact become great

And maybe Tre Flowers could in fact become great

Tre Flowers recorded zero interceptions as a rookie for the Seattle Seahawks in 2018, but as time passes, theories evolve, and understanding of the game grows, we know as we get older that cornerbacks shall not simply be judged on their interception totals. We know that it may in fact be good to have fewer interceptions if it is a byproduct of quarterbacks being afraid to throw your way; making it all the more incredible that Richard Sherman could have multiple eight-interception seasons while being one of the least-targeted starting corners in the NFL. Flowers never got the chance to play...

Who will be the 49ers most improved player in 2019?

Who will be the 49ers most improved player in 2019?

There are quite a few realistic options Because the San Francisco 49ers suffered a ton of injuries in 2018, they were forced to play a ton of players that weren’t ready. So when I ask who the most improved player on the team will be in 2019, there are plenty of options. Jimmy Garoppolo is an option. Shoot, Richard Sherman can even be an option if he truly only played at 80% last year. That’s not the options we’ll talk about today, though. Fred Warner Warner has already gotten better this offseason by changing his number. When watching him, one thing that really stood out to me was...

Cap Classroom: PUP and tolling contracts

Cap Classroom: PUP and tolling contracts

As the 2017 season wore on, one question fans and observers asked over and over was regarding the status of cornerback DeShawn Shead, who had opened the year on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list while working his way back from a torn ACL suffered in final half of the final game of the 2016 season. The reasons fans were so interested in Shead’s status was due to the team’s loss of multiple defensive backs during the Week 10 game against the Arizona Cardinals, as both Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor went down with injuries. With the benefit of nearly eighteen months of...

NFL Draft Profile: How Deandre Baker fits with 49ers

Today we take a closer look at Georgia cornerback and the 2018 Jim Thorpe Award recipient Deandre Baker as the San Francisco 49ers may look to the second round to address their secondary. Greetings Faithful! We are back with another scouting report. Today our focus turns to the secondary and the cornerback position with Georgia product and 2018 Jim Thorpe Award recipient Deandre Baker. The San Francisco 49ers may be wise to address a position currently comprised of aging veterans (Richard Sherman), players coming off major injuries (Jason Verrett & Jimmie Ward), and unproven young talent...

49ers CB Richard Sherman was only at 80 percent in 2018

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman brought a sense of stability in his first season with the team. It appears they are expecting even bigger things from him moving forward. Sherman dealt with his fair share of injuries in the 2018 NFL season. According to Albert Breer of the Monday Morning Quarterback column, he was […] The post 49ers CB Richard Sherman was only at 80 percent in 2018 appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Report: Richard Sherman played at 80% for the 49ers in 2018

Report: Richard Sherman played at 80% for the 49ers in 2018

The team expects an even better version of Sherman for 2018 Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated had an interesting tidbit in his MMQB this morning. He noted that San Francisco 49ers CB Richard Sherman was never really healthy in 2018. Here’s the excerpt: One thing to watch: I’m told that Richard Sherman was at no better than 80% last year, and he only got there after significant improvement in early November, right around when the Niners played the Giants. As such, San Francisco expects a much improved version of the former All-Pro, which would give the roster a boost at a position where...

NFL Draft Profile: How Nasir Adderley would fit with the 49ers

With the 49ers needing all the help they can get in the secondary, it would make a lot of sense for John Lynch to take a flyer on this up-and-coming prospect It was a swing and a miss for the 49ers in their pursuit of the newly-acquired safety for the Baltimore Ravens Earl Thomas. It would have been a seemingly perfect match, especially having Richard Sherman, his former teammate, locking down one side of the field. Oh, what could have been! Instead of landing Thomas - or any of the other available free agent safeties - San Francisco now turns its gaze towards April’s draft. The 2019...

Report: 49ers workout CB Jimmy Moreland of James Madison

The team continues to look members in the secondary The San Francisco 49ers aren’t done looking at the cornerback position, apparently. We figured there was going to be a lot of competition opposite Richard Sherman. The team signed Jason Verrett on a prove it deal during free agency. Bringing in a draft pick later on makes sense as well to really solidify the depth of the position. On Saturday, the team worked out CB Jimmy Moreland of James Madison, per Aaron Wilson. Moreland played on the South team in January at the Senior Bowl. The same team that the 49ers coached. You may not be...

There’s a chance of it passing and the 49ers cornerback highlighted a potential issue with the rule. The extent of pass interference has yet to be decided in the NFL, but the players it affects are speaking out.

Newly-adopted player-safety rules, while wholly necessary, already make one aspect of the job asked of defensive backs close to impossible.

Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes is unhappy; should the 49ers trade for him?

The relationship looks like it’s over in Minnesota. Is Rhodes worth the money? There are a good amount of fans that think the team should still add another cornerback. As of now, Kyle Shanahan said that Jason Verrett, Ahkello Witherspoon, and Tarvarius Moore will compete for the starting spot opposite of Richard Sherman. The question for the San Francisco 49ers becomes, can they do better? Should they do better? You never can have enough good players on the roster. Especially considering the injuries the team suffered in 2018. What makes the decision so difficult is it’s not just as cut...
