Last week both parties said a reunion was possible, this week discussions have begun.
That’s according to a report from Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee, who says that Richard Sherman and the 49ers are talking about the possibility of him coming back for the 2021 season.
A signing is not imminent according to Biderman, but it would not be surprising if Sherman is back in Red and Gold this season after hitting free agency. Sherman’s market has not been what he thought it was going to be, the 33-year-old coming off an injury plagued year that shrunk his value.
Sherman played just five games last season while dealing with calf issues, but made the All-Pro team with the 49ers the season before. The 49ers drafted two cornerbacks last month, adding Ambry Thomas out of Michigan in the third round and Deommodore Lenoir out of Oregon in the fifth.
