Richard Sherman isn’t done talking about his abrupt release from the Seahawks, and he still appears to be upset with how his time with Seattle ended.
“You just expect that after you’ve done so much for a franchise that they wouldn’t cut you while you’re hurt,” Sherman told reporters Thursday, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “It’s kind of more of a respect thing than anything. But they did. So you’ve kind of got to roll with the business.”
Sherman’s comments come three days before the 49ers cornerback makes the trip to Seattle for the first time as a visiting player. The Seahawks waived the three-time All-Pro cornerback in March while he was recovering from a torn Achilles. Sherman then signed a three-year deal with the 49ers.
Former teammate Doug Baldwin also talked about Sherman’s release, saying he wasn’t happy with how the cornerback’s time ended with the franchise.
“I thought it was really sh—y, to be honest with you, how it ended,” Baldwin said, per The News Tribune. “I would really have liked for him to stay here, and have an opportunity to finish his career with this organization.
“But it’s part of the business. Doesn’t work out that way.”
The 49ers (2-9) will travel to Seattle on Sunday to face the Seahawks (6-5) with kickoff set for 4:25 p.m. ET.
