It sure sounds like it.

There are some interesting Tweets coming out of Seattle:

So you have Jeremy Lane and Kam Chancellor saying goodbye to Richard Sherman on Twitter. There have been rumors swirling around Sherman being traded or released in Seattle for what seems like the last 5 years. It never actually happened though because Seattle couldn’t get a package that they were willing to take for Sherman.

Things have changed now, though. Sherman is coming off an Achilles injury. That injury is especially tough for a guy that is about to be 30 years old. There is no guarantee that he will ever have the speed and explosiveness that he did before the injury again.

Before anyone asks the question, no, the Titans should not pursue Sherman. His skills were declining before the injury. Also, do you remember the game the Seahawks played here last year where Sherman yelled at an official with his helmet off for like 10 minutes after a play? Yeah, well I do. They don’t need that dude here.
