Some great news came across the wire during Wednesday's training camp press conference.

It was reported by 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan that star free agent cornerback Richard Sherman has been 100% medically cleared for training camp.


Back in March, Sherman agreed to a three year, $27.15 million contract. Betting on himself in a big way, Sherman would only be paid a $2 million roster bonus if he was medically cleared before training camp from an Achilles tear suffered in 2017.

The day has come and now cleared, Sherman is $2 million richer, which serves as a big vote of self confidence that has paid off in a big way for Sherman.

Getting Sherman back at full health before camp even starts could be a tremendous help for the defense moving forward.
