Tweet link: Sherman nearing an extension?

Jason La Canfora of CBS is reporting talks between the Seahawks and cornerback Richard Sherman have been productive.[HTML1]

Signing Sherman and free safety Earl Thomas to extensions continues to be among the offseason priorities for the Seahawks.

At $13 million annually, Sherman would be the highest-paid cornerback in the league in average annual salary. Darrelle Revis has a two-year deal with the New England Patriots that calls for him being paid $25 million next season, thanks to a $12.5 million roster bonus. Even then, Revis will average $12 million annually in the two-year deal. Sherman could easily become the highest-paid corner in average salary and total value.

Of course, the thing that matters most is guaranteed money.

The NFLPA says the Seahawks have $14.9 million remaining in salary cap space.
