Sherman dined Friday night in Los Gatos with his wife and Shanahan, as first reported by The Athletic's Marcus Thompson II.

Richard Sherman was released by the Seahawks on Friday, but his time in free agency may be brief.

The lawyer told her that Simpson was willing to confess, but only under the condition that they present the confession as a "what if".

Sherman's release was a cost-cutting move. Signing with the 49ers would keep him on the West Coast and also near where he went to college.

However, Sherman's Achilles injury makes him too much of a risk for the Colts, who aren't necessarily in a "win now" mode. Smith, who caught Sherman's tip of a Colin Kaepernick pass for a game-clinching interception in the 2014 NFC title game, is under contract with the 49ers through 2021 after signing with them past year. He then had a separate surgery to clean bone spurs out of his left Achilles last month.

The 29-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his National Football League career with the Seahawks, including their Super Bowl winning season of 2013. Sherman calls his free agency an "ongoing process". On March 1, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said he expected Sherman to remain in walking boot for a few more weeks. The team has a talented corner in Darius Slay.

San Francisco started the offseason with a $137.5 million pact with impending free agent Jimmy Garoppolo. Sherman was scheduled to earn an $11.4 base salary in 2018.

I'd ask us to do one more thing: think of this police department and all police departments throughout our state. It is not yet known if the suspect died as a result of the gun battle with police or if it was self-inflicted.

The shedding of Sherman, Bennett and Lane means the Seahawks now have just eight players left on their roster from the 2013 team that won the Super Bowl under contract for the 2018 season - quarterback Russell Wilson, receiver Doug Baldwin, linebackers Bobby Wagner and K.J. Wright, Chancellor, Thomas, Avril, and punter Jon Ryan.
