After the Seattle Seahawks made Earl Thomas the NFL's highest-paid safety on Monday, Marc Sessler pointed out that All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman is next in line for a payday.
Sherman's lucrative contract extension might come sooner than expected.
"Make no mistake," Rapoport emphasized, "Richard Sherman is next for the Seahawks and their contracts.
As for Sherman's asking price, Rapoport says don't be surprised if he eclipses Darrelle Revis' $12 million in the 2014 season.
By virtue of his age, leadership, playmaking prowess and ability to shut down No. 1 receivers, Sherman deserves to become the NFL's highest-paid cornerback.
