Richard Sherman expects the San Francisco 49ers to pursue Earl Thomas in free agency.
“If they need me to be, I have no problem with it,” Sherman told reporters on Thursday.
“I think this is a pretty attractive destination as is. But money is the best recruiter. I’ll give my two cents. I’ll give you my best recruiting pitch.”
The 49ers are expected to have $70 million in cap space.
“Would I love to play with Earl Thomas III? I would love to,” Sherman said. “I would love to have him back in the locker room. But I’m sure he’ll have a plethora of opportunities, and I’m sure we’re going to throw our hat in the ring.”
The 49ers have a group of young safeties, but no guaranteed starters among the group that includes Jaquiski Tartt, Adrian Colbert, Marcell Harris and D.J. Reed.
