Report: Bucs spoke to Richard Sherman after Sean Murphy-Bunting injury

  Report: Bucs spoke to Richard Sherman after Sean Murphy-Bunting injury The Buccaneers put cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting on injured reserve this week due to the elbow injury that knocked him out of the opener and it remains unclear how long he will be out. Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said this week that the team was still waiting to find out if Murphy-Bunting will be able [more]Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians said this week that the team was still waiting to find out if Murphy-Bunting will be able to return this season and they reportedly looked into some options to fill out the position group while he’s out of the lineup. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports the team reached out to free agent Richard Sherman in the wake of the injury.

Five-time Pro Bowl cornerback Richard Sherman was an absent free agent throughout September before he put pen to paper on a contract with the reigning Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier this week.

There's now some information about that agreement.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reported early Friday evening that Sherman is set to earn a prorated $1.2 million salary, or $1 million for the rest of the campaign. $500,000 of that cash is guaranteed to the veteran, and he can also add up to $125,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

Richard Sherman rumors: Buccaneers, 49ers, Seahawks have reached out to free-agent CB

  Richard Sherman rumors: Buccaneers, 49ers, Seahawks have reached out to free-agent CB Tampa Bay could use some cornerback help, and they are one of multiple teams that has an interest in Richard Sherman.Sherman was arrested during the 2021 NFL offseason and has been undergoing therapy, as NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Multiple teams across the NFL are showing an interest in Sherman in wake of his progress. That includes the Buccaneers, 49ers and Seahawks, all teams that have a need at the cornerback position.

"I went with the best offer I had, the best opportunity to go out there and put some great tape on, to lead another group," the 33-year-old said earlier this week. "I feel comfortable and confident in my abilities to go out there and execute and help that team win."

Interestingly, Sherman stated Wednesday he required "at least a week of practice to really hone things in, to play at the level that I’m capable of," and head coach Bruce Arians hinted at that time he'd activate the new acquisition only in case of a secondary emergency. On Friday, however, Arians confirmed Sherman will be active for Sunday's matchup at the New England Patriots, meaning the cornerback can start collecting some of that roster bonus money.

It's still unclear if Sherman will face a potential suspension via the NFL's personal conduct policy regarding his disturbing July arrest. For now, however, he and his teammates are concentrating on a trip to Gillette Stadium.

Richard Sherman reportedly meeting with Buccaneers

  Richard Sherman reportedly meeting with Buccaneers The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be adding yet another veteran player looking for another championship. The team is reportedly meeting with former Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman on Tuesday, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Sherman played four games before re-aggravating the injury, causing him to miss the final two games of the season. The Buccaneers are hoping Sherman still has that ability after dealing with an injury-riddled season last year. Sherman has reportedly drawn interest from a number of teams, so he may have other meetings lined up if he leaves Tuesday's visit with a contract from the Bucs.
