Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman became eligible for a new contract on December 29. He has made it clear on multiple occasions that he believes he’s the best cornerback in the game.

Sherman is due to make $1.389 million in 2014. Darrelle Revis makes $1 million. Per game.

And so it’s believed Sherman will ask the Seahawks to reconfigure his contract. Per a league source, the request has not yet come.

The thinking is that Sherman and his agent hope to let the Seahawks formulate a plan for keeping (or not) their impending free agents. With the 2014 offseason program still weeks away, which gives both sides plenty of time to address Sherman’s contract.
