    Richard Sherman has agreed to a three-year contract with the San Francisco 49ers. The free-agent cornerback told ESPN's Josina Anderson that the incentive-laden deal is worth up to $39.15 million.
    "I'm thankful to John [Lynch, 49ers GM] and Kyle [Shanahan, 49ers coach] for believing in me," Sherman told Anderson. "Some smaller details still getting ironed out, but #ShermInTheBay."
    The 49ers had met with Sherman earlier Saturday and wanted to make sure he is healing well from a torn Achilles in one leg and a bone spur in the other. On Friday, Sherman told Anderson that he will be back to running on the treadmill next week.
    He also told Anderson on Friday night that he had received preliminary interest from the Titans, Lions, Raiders, Texans, Buccaneersand Packers.
    But San Francisco ended up being the choice, which means two games against his former team, the Seahawks, each regular season.
    Sherman, who is serving as his own agent, had made it abundantly clear that he wanted "to go to a contender" after he was released by Seattle on Friday with a failed-physical designation.
    In adding Sherman, the 49ers filled what was arguably the biggest hole on their team with the most proven veteran cornerback on the market. San Francisco allowed a total QBR of 87 last season, second-worst in the league. At the NFL scouting combine, Lynch said it didn't take a "savant" to see the team's need at the position.
    With Dontae Johnson, who started all 16 games a year ago, set to become a free agent, the Niners entered this offseason with Ahkello Witherspoon and nickel back K'Waun Williams as their only corners under contract with extensive league experience (four years between them).
    Sherman has a long history with the Bay Area, playing his college football at nearby Stanford before going on to become one of the Niners' biggest adversaries during the heated Seahawks-Niners rivalry that spanned from 2011 to 2013.
    Upon arrival in San Francisco and a return to health, Sherman will be expected to hold down a starting cornerback spot opposite Witherspoon in coordinator Robert Saleh's defense. Saleh and Sherman have a previous relationship from Saleh's time as a defensive assistant in Seattle.
    Because Saleh runs the same Cover 3 defense Sherman spent most of his time playing with the Seahawks, the Niners don't expect the veteran cornerback to have to make much of an adjustment in terms of scheme fit.
    One of the most accomplished cornerbacks of his generation, Sherman made four Pro Bowls and was named a first-team All-Pro three times during his seven seasons with the Seahawks, who drafted him in the fifth round out of Stanford in 2011. His 32 interceptions in that span are first among NFL players, as are his 99 passes defended, according to the NFL.
    Sherman was an instrumental figure in Seattle's historically good defense, which allowed the fewest points in the NFL every year from 2012 to 2015. During his seven seasons with the team, the Seahawks made five playoff appearances, reached two Super Bowls and delivered Seattle its first NFL championship.

    49ers will still suck. The guy is thug life. Sherman won b/c he was on a Carrol team. It was not b/c Carrol was lucky enough to have Sherman.


    Sherman will bitch and complain while he is in SF b/c that is what he does.

    I think he's probably paid about right. However, all top athletes are paid way too much.

    He's smart. There are no star WRs in this division. He knows that. And clearly holding a grudge.

    Fitz the best one and he's on his last year maybe.

    You'll laugh at this but Doug Baldwin is a very good NFL WR. Not a star.

    Been to two pro bowls and led the league in TDs in 2015.

    Lockette is good if he can stay healthy. Made the pro bowl as a rookie.

    I like paul Richardson. But same issues can't stay healthy.

    Everyone will panic about lane and sherman but they have guys ready. Griffen is good but the dude who really looked good was the S/cb Mcdoungh or whatever his name is. He will make a name for himself.

    Defense was getting to the qb slower and slower right after they won it. The better qb's were able to pick them apart. Russell wilson is amazing. If he's not a top 10 qb why is he like the 3rd/4th qb off the board over the last few years in fantasy football?

    Brady. Rodgers. Cam. Wilson. That's how it goes in fantasy and reality.

    Yeah, ok. He's been an MVP candidate every year in the league. Won a SB and should've won 2 if it not for that dickhead Bevel.

    Here are the only QBs better than Russell Wilson in the NFL.

    Brady, Ryan, Roeth, Rodgers and maybe Brees and Wentz. That's it.
