Seahawks GM: We're past Richard Sherman trade talk

Print

Richard Sherman reported to voluntary workouts with the Seattle Seahawks.

General manager John Schneider told reporters Monday that the cornerback is at the facility working out after skipping last week's conditioning sessions.

As for the much-discussed issue of Sherman being on the trade block this offseason, Schneider said the team has pretty much closed the book unless they are bowled over by an offer.

"Right now we've kind of moved past it. If someone calls and goes crazy with something, we'll discuss it," Schneider said of a Sherman trade, via SeattlePI.com's Stephen Cohen.

The update shouldn't come as a surprise.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported earlier this month that the Seahawks were seeking a "Darrelle Revis Jets-to-Buccaneers type of deal," in which Seattle would receive at least a first-round pick in exchange for Sherman.

With the Seahawks still boasting a Super Bowl-caliber defense, parting ways with an All-Pro talent like Sherman never made sense unless a team was willing to pay through the nose. With no club stepping to the plate, Seattle will simply move forward with Sherman as they prepare to defend their NFC West title.
