Richard Sherman has sign one-year deal with Tampa Bay Buccaneer worth the sum of $2.5million.
Sherman broke the news via his own podcast on Wednesday, with the team – who lost starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting to a dislocated elbow in Week One.
The 33-year-old had held talks with both of his former employer, the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks, but chose the Bucs.
“I finally had enough conversations and came to a decision that I’m going to play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Woo!” Sherman said.
“All the craziness and then all the hate and all the tweets, and then everybody’s mad because I didn’t go to their team. I’m sorry.”
“I went with the best offer I had, the best opportunity to go out there and put some great tape on, to lead another group,” Sherman said on his podcast.
“I feel comfortable and confident in my abilities to go out there and execute and help that team win. This was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”
