CB Sherman opens up about trade, QB Wilson

RENTON, Wash. — Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said Wednesday that he did not request a trade this offseason and that he has a “fantastic” relationship with quarterback Russell Wilson.

“It’s just a conversation they have every year,” Sherman said. “I guess this year, more people knew about it. It’s a conversation they have every year — everybody’s open, everybody’s available. They just made sure I knew, and you guys found out. Pretty open about it. It was never a situation where anybody asked for it. It was just a conversation.”

Throughout the offseason, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider said publicly on multiple occasions that Sherman was available, but they never made a deal.
