NFL cornerback Richard Sherman has never been afraid to speak his mind, and with a month before he is due to hit the free agent market, he’s at it again.

Sherman declared in December that it would likely require a “miracle” for the cornerback and 49ers to agree to a deal for 2021 and beyond.

The corner did say that he and head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch had a good chat about the team’s future.

“It was a good conversation, nothing crazy,” Sherman said, via Pro Football Talk.

“Just a good conversation about where they are and where I am, and their plans. We were both very positive and as good as you can be in a situation like this.”

Sherman played the first seven seasons of his NFL career with the rival Seattle Seahawks. After his release from Seattle before the 2017 season, he latched on with the Niners, where he’s played the last three seasons.

Last season, Sherman played in just five games and picked off one pass.

Now when he talks about the 49ers, it sounds very much like he knows that he won’t be a member of the team in 2021.

“Very positive. It was an incredible chapter in my career and I got to meet and play with some incredible human beings,” Sherman said.
