One of the top storylines among these news stories and rumors stems from Richard Sherman’s press conference, where he defended himself for negotiating his own contracts. Sherman has received criticism for not having an agent -- most notably from former Pro Bowl tackle and member of the Cleveland Browns, Joe Thomas. Sherman recently signed a 3-year deal with only $5 million guaranteed, which may seem low for a player of Sherman’s caliber. However, the cornerback is coming off an Achilles injury, and Sherman noted he’s getting more guaranteed money than what he would have received with the Seattle Seahawks.
