Richard Sherman to visit with the Lions

How does Richard Sherman signing affect 49ers plans for NFL draft

But Adam Schefter reports "there's a real chance" San Francisco will be his first and last visit.

In a vacuum, it makes sense: The Lions' second- and third-string outside cornerbacks are both entering free agency, and a big-name veteran like Richard Sherman could not only replace, but upgrade the platoon of Nevin Lawson and D.J. Hayden. The team followed up with a thank you note for Sherman's "immeasurable impact over the years".

Of course, this is all dependent on Sherman actually leaving Northern California without a contract. He tore his Achilles tendon in November.

Sherman turns 30 on March 30.

The talented, brash defender has been one of the faces of a team that appeared in two Super Bowls and won one, success built on a hard-hitting defensive identity and the vaunted "Legion of Boom" secondary.

He also has had a procedure to clean up bone spurs in his left Achilles.

"I plan on playing five or six more years whether it's here or elsewhere", Sherman said. Sherman expects to be ready for the regular season but could be limit in August for training camp and parts of the preseason.

Shaquill Griffin will return as the starter at right cornerback and the team is expected to tender restricted free agent Justin Coleman to return as the nickel corner.

The releases of Sherman and Lane leave Seattle's cornerback spot with some uncertainty heading into free agency.

He also turned his tongue to players. Saleh has implemented a defensive system that is similar to the Seahawks.

Sherman led the league in interceptions in 2013 and has been selected to the Pro Bowl four times.
