It is getting him attention doe so he's all for it but how many teams would shy away from dude if he was a free agent? Quite a few?
if sherman was a FA, he be on a lot of teams lists, including the 49ers....
I seriously doubt this.
I had reflected on this issue and the Niners roster make-up this past season. Womdering why Harbaugh would not have picked Sherman up in the draft when he knew him better than any other coach (having recruited and coached him at Stanford). It comes down to one thing: CHARACTER.
Sherman has a poisonous character that neither Ballke nor Harbaugh want contaminating the Niners locker room. A certain degree of deviance is, and has to be, tolerated. But there is a line that has to be drawn too. Sherman (and others) cross that line and will never be part of the Niners. I can think of several examples of the top of my head of free agents and draft prospects, excellent players, who can be, or could have been, had but will be, or were, passed on by the Niners. But that's another subject.
It's pretty obvious that the Seahawks have no such scruples, and especially their coach, being evidently cut from the same cloth. They aren't the only ones, either.
