Profootballtalk reports the Seahawks and LCB Richard Sherman have yet to engage in contract extension talks.

Sherman, a fifth-round pick in 2011, became eligible for a new deal on December 29 when his third regular season in the league came to a close. He has one year left on his rookie deal at $1.389 million. Negotiations are expected to take place this spring. It would be surprising if an agreement isn't reached. Sherman will likely become the highest-paid cornerback in the league.

Richard Sherman would have missed a few weeks if he sustained his ankle sprain during the season.

Sherman was diagnosed with a second-degree high ankle sprain following the Super Bowl and will be healed in plenty of time for OTAs in May. Pro Football Focus' No. 6 corner will be angling for a contract extension this offseason. Sherman is set to make just $1.389 million in 2014, the final year of his rookie deal.

Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman was carted off the field with a right ankle injury in Super Bowl 48.

The injury didn't appear particularly serious on the field, but Sherman was limping around for much of the second half. We suspect he'll be alright. Sherman put clamps on Eric Decker in the Super Bowl, holding him to one catch for six yards before exiting midway through the fourth frame.

Richard Sherman's brother says Michael Crabtree tried to start a fight with Sherman during a charity event last summer.

The 49ers threw at Sherman one time on Sunday, the memorable play that saw the All-Pro corner break up a potential game-winning pass intended for Crabtree with 22 seconds remaining. After that, things got ugly. Sherman drew a penalty flag for giving the choke sign to Crabtree and called the receiver mediocre in various post-game rants. The antics have become standard for Sherman, but apparently there's some personal history here dating back to Larry Fitzgerald's charity event. After that dust-up, Sherman vowed to "make a play and embarrass him."

Richard Sherman said he asked coach Pete Carroll to shadow Anquan Boldin in Sunday night's Week 2 win over the Niners.

The Seahawks normally just play sides with their corners. But with Brandon Browner (hamstring) sidelined, Sherman took on the challenge of stopping Boldin and humiliated the veteran. Boldin finished with just one catch for seven yards on four targets. Sherman, a first-team All-Pro last season, is clearly the most dominant cover corner in the league this side of Darrelle Revis. Cecil Shorts and all Jaguars will be hands-off fantasy plays in Week 3.

Updating a previous item, ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms that Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman won his four-game PED suspension appeal.

Sherman originally tweeted out the news saying, "Thank you NFL for upholding the truth... I won." Schefter and multiple national writers have also confirmed the news, along with the NFL Players Association. Sherman hasn't denied that he tested positive for amphetamines, but he has indeed won the appeal based on the "specimen collector screwed up" argument. Any way you slice it, it's huge news for Seattle. RCB Brandon Browner will serve the final game of his four-game ban in Week 17 before the shutdown duo will be back on the field together for the first round of the NFL playoffs.

Seahawks CB Richard Sherman tweeted Thursday that he won an appeal of his four-game suspension.

Sherman, who was snubbed from the Pro Bowl team, argued that the cup used for his urine specimen was contaminated because it was "leaking." The NFL apparently agreed that the "chain of custody" was broken and the positive test for Adderall was invalid. It's massive news for the Seahawks, who will now have their elite corner duo available for the playoffs as Brandon Browner's four-game suspension will be up after Week 17.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that the decision on Seahawks LCB Richard Sherman's four-game PEDs suspension appeal is expected to be announced Thursday.

Per Schefter, Sherman is arguing that his urine specimen was contaminated while being collected for drug testing. Sherman claims the cup was "leaking," which led to the collector placing a second cup underneath it to capture the leakage. Sherman's argument hinges on the "chain of custody" being broken due to the fact that the second cup's "seal had already been broken," and the urine was contaminated. "It should go well," Sherman said confidently. "There was a chain of custody mistake. There were mistakes made by the tester." Sherman tested positive for Adderall.
