Seahawks CB Richard Sherman Considered Cowboys Amid Trade Rumors

As trade rumors swirled during the NFL off-season, Seattle Seahawks defensive back Richard Sherman reportedly thought about life as a Dallas Cowboy.

According to a story by ESPN's Seth Wickersham, Sherman told friends he allowed himself to imagine playing for the Cowboys.

The Seahawks were rumored to be open to trading the All-Pro cornerback — who was open to being traded — ahead of the 2017 NFL Draft in April.

The move would have made sense for the Cowboys. Sherman is an ideal fit in the coverage schemes most used by Dallas and the team had needs throughout the secondary after losing Brandon Carr, Mo Claiborne, J.J Wilcox and Barry Church to free agency.

Dallas, though, chose to address the unit by selecting three cornerbacks and a safety in the draft.
