2018 Colts Possible Free Agent Targets: Cornerback Richard Sherman

SEATTLE, WA - OCTOBER 29: Cornerback Richard Sherman
SEATTLE, WA - OCTOBER 29: Cornerback Richard Sherman /

Richard Sherman has become the biggest name on the free agent market this offseason after his release from the Seahawks. Should the Colts take a look at signing him?

The Legion of Boom seems to be over in Seattle after the Seahawks released Richard Sherman on Friday. Sherman’s free agency will be complex as he is coming off of a serious Achilles injury, and he’ll turn 30 years old before the beginning of next season.

The Colts may be looking for a number one cornerback in free agency. General manager Chris Ballard said the team will let the market decide what Rashaan Melvin’s value is, which means they may not bring him back if the price climbs too high.

If Melvin doesn’t re-sign, the Colts will need to bring in at least one solid cornerback in free agency. This year’s market has some solid young cornerbacks, but none of them are as decorated as Richard Sherman.

However, Sherman’s Achilles injury makes him too much of a risk for the Colts, who aren’t necessarily in a “win now” mode. Chris Ballard would be better served to take a look at some of the younger cornerbacks on the market if they are unable to re-sign Rashaan Melvin.
