Free-agent cornerback Richard Sherman, acting as his own agent, suggested Saturday he is not close to making a decision about his future.
Sherman spent Friday night with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan at a Los Gatos restaurant. He was scheduled to meet with 49ers officials on Saturday, and was expected to take a physical.
At noon on Saturday, Sherman updated his situation via social media.
“Thank you to everyone for the kind words,” Sherman wrote on Twitter. “This is just another chapter in the journey. This will be an ongoing process and I am excited to take on this challenge. To the fans urging me to join your team, I am humbled but I can only look at the teams that have reached out.”
Sherman has a visit scheduled next week with the Detroit Lions, the NFL Network reported.
He had dinner Friday night with 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan.
“Just doing our due diligence,” Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area. “Nothing to report, yet.”
Sherman, who turns 30 later this month, was selected to the Pro Bowl in four of his first seven NFL seasons. He was a first-team All-Pro three times.
The Seattle Seahawks released/failed physical on Friday to avoid paying his scheduled $11 million salary for the 2018 season. He underwent season-ending surgery to repair his right Achilles tendon. Sherman also recently underwent “clean up” procedure on his left Achilles.
