Sports briefs: Seahawks lock up Sherman for four more years
First Published May 07 2014 10:42 pm • Last Updated May 07 2014 10:42 pm

NFL • Richard Sherman is the latest member of the Seattle Seahawks secondary to be locked up for the long term. The All-Pro cornerback is getting paid the best of anyone. Sherman signed a four-year contract extension Wednesday, a deal that makes him one of the highest-paid cornerbacks in NFL history. Sherman announced the deal on his website. Sherman wrote that the extension is for $57.4 million with $40 million guaranteed. It’s unclear whether the deal incorporates the final year of his rookie contract in 2014 or is a new deal starting in 2015. Sherman wrote on his website that there is no other team or city that he would want to play for.
