There could be some sleepless nights in Seattle for Richard Sherman.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Sherman is bracing for an exit from the Seahawks.

One of the biggest Seahawks rumors this offseason has been if Seattle Seahawks star cornerback Richard Sherman will return in 2018.

However, Sherman was scheduled to meet with coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider Wednesday afternoon, presumably to talk about his future with the team, NFL Media's Tom Pelissero reported. Cornerback Jeremy Lane tweeted: "That text message got my heart hurting. damn 25 [Sherman] was my Dawg #WhatsNext".

The former Stanford cornerback's future is uncertain with the Seattle Seahawks.

Last season, Sherman played in just nine games before tearing his Achilles.

Kam Chancellor was less obvious with an Instagram post simply thanking Sherman for coming up with his nickname.

However, Sherman also told ESPN nothing is going on. "Haven't been told anything", he reportedly said.

With Sherman's mother letting the word know her son is no longer with the Seahawks, it appears to be only a matter of time before the move is made official by the team.

If Sherman is moved, the Seahawks would clear $11 million in cap space.

Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has always showered Sherman with praise, calling him a "great" player in this video and touting that since he's come into the National Football League that he's had more interceptions than any other player. The likelihood is that he becomes a free agent by next Wednesday, March 14, and the potential is there for the Patriots to take a look.
