NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport says that they’re finalizing a 4-year contract that will make him the highest-paid cornerback in the league. The news comes two weeks after they wrapped up a 4-year, $40 million deal with Earl Thomas. That deal makes him the highest-paid safety in the league.
Sherman tweeted he signed a new deal. It’s a four-year, $57.4M extension with Seahawks that includes $40M guaranteed, according to his website.
