The Seattle Seahawks officially announced on Friday that cornerback Richard Sherman has been released from the team, as Seattle looks to free up cap space for the start of 2018 free agency.
We start off with the statement from the Seahawks organization thanking Sherman for his tremendous contributions over the past seven years.

The Seahawks later compiled this remarkable video tribute to #25, and it’s worth every moment of your time... and hopefully you have 2 minutes and 40 seconds to spare just to watch this.
For your immeasurable impact on this organization, this region, and this game, #ThankYouSherman. pic.twitter.com/a4NxveyGou— Seattle Seahawks (@Seahawks) March 9, 2018
His release has already garnered reaction from Seahawks players past and present, and presumably will continue to pour in throughout the weekend. We’ll update this post when more social media posts come in, but here’s what current Seahawks have already written.
No one better. Honor to share the field with you. @RSherman_25 pic.twitter.com/ei8LrFZu4K— Russell Wilson (@DangeRussWilson) March 9, 2018

(That’s WR David Moore, by the way)
Bag of Bones Sherm is what I call em!!!! (Inside) Business is business as usual. We battled like Gladiators for the same common goal and it was beautiful. Maybe we will get you back, who knows??? Thank you for bringing that sense of confidence to the team. Even if you were wrong, you did it with confidence . I admired that and it helped me along the way. All Love Brother. #LOB @rsherman25
A couple of former Seahawks also chimed in, and maybe we should pay a little attention to Oakland Raiders LB Bruce Irvin, whose emoji use seems to hint that he’d love to reunite with Sherman down in Northern California.
Man it's really crazy to see it all unravel in Seattle! Arguably the best defensive 3 year span ever 2013-2015! Man what a time!! Appreciate y'all @mosesbread72 @RSherman_25 !!— Dion Bailey (@dbailey_18) March 9, 2018
It’s crazy how things change...I feel beyond grateful to have gotten to play for the Seahawks the years I did....Good luck to @mosesbread72 and @RSherman_25— Clint Gresham (@Gresh49) March 9, 2018
Your best days are ahead
