In a rare bout of candidness from an NFL executive, Seahawks general manager John Schneider acknowledged that his organization is open to the idea of trading Richard Sherman.

The star cornerback confirmed Thursday that both sides are listening to offers.


What would it take to pry the three-time All Pro away from a Super Bowl contender?

Appearing on Thursday’s edition of Total Access, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed Seattle is trying to set a “very high price” for Sherman.

What does that mean?

“Potentially a first-round pick,” Rapoport continued. “Potentially a very good player on a low contract and a pick as well.”

Rapoport emphasized that the two sides maintain a high degree of mutual respect, which is reflected in the price tag.

The Seahawks don’t feel pressure to deal one of their best players. If a desperate team is willing to make it worth their while leading up to a loaded 2017 draft class, though, Sherman could find himself in a different uniform this season.
