Report: Cornerback Richard Sherman Arrested, Denied Bail

Veteran cornerback Richard Sherman was reportedly arrested early Wednesday morning.

Veteran cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested early Wednesday morning, according to a report from ESPN.

Per ESPN, "The spokesman for the Redmond PD said a 911 call from the residence was received at 2 a.m. PT. The person calling said that an adult male family member who did not live at the residence was attempting to force his way into the home.

"When police arrived, the suspect was outside the home. He fought with police but was eventually apprehended and taken to a local hospital to be checked. After he was cleared medically, he was booked into the King County Correctional Facility."

The veteran defensive back was a fifth-round pick of the Seattle Seahawks in the 2011 NFL Draft. 

In 2020, Sherman battled a variety of injuries, and finished the season with 18 tackles, one pass defensed and one interception for the San Fransisco 49ers.

Pro Football Focus graded the 33-year-old the 38th-best cornerback in the league, as he earned a 67.7 grade. 

Back in early 2020, it was reported that Sherman turned down a lucrative offer from the Detroit Lions.

The Detroit Lions finished with a record of 9-7 back in 2017.

He was reportedly guaranteed $20 million as part of Detroit's contract offer.

After spending time with 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, Sherman realized that San Francisco was a better fit for him than Detroit.

“But, that’s not the kind of football I want to play. The way you run their scheme, your culture. You want to do it the Patriots’ way, and that’s really not the way I do football," Sherman said via The Athletic.

He added, "Hey, I can get this $20 million guaranteed and be in Detroit and lose football games. Or I can go to a place where I’m very comfortable with the scheme, coach and culture. And I’m very comfortable with the things they do, and I really believe we can win."
