The Seahawks said there is nothing to report about rumors circulating regarding the future of cornerback Richard Sherman Wednesday.

The Seattle Seahawks reign as an elite NFC team seems to be over as the franchise cut bait with Michael Bennett on Wednesday, trading him to Philadelphia, and now they are poised to do the same with Richard Sherman.

The strongest indications that Sherman's departure from the Seahawks is imminent have come from teammates on social media.

In addition, the NFL Network's Tom Pelissero tweeted that Sherman will meet with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider later on Wednesday to discuss his future.

Kam Chancellor also responded to Sherman's message, suggesting Sherman could be gone.

ESPN's Josina Anderson quoted Sherman as saying: "I'm good".

However, he played just nine games in 2017 before he suffered a season-ending ruptured Achilles tendon.

Sherman has been linked to the Patriots in recent years.

Earlier this month, Sherman underwent "minor surgery" to his left Achilles just a few months after a major procedure to fix a torn right Achilles.

But coming off an offseason in which he'll undergo surgeries to on both Achilles tendons, and entering a contract year with a cap hit of $13.2 million, Sherman's potential value on the trade market is unclear.
