Sherman has a full interview with Gee Scott on KIRO 97.3 at 9:15PM tonight. Some clips have been released where he mentions the things that lead to his release; age, injury, cap, salary spent on other players, poor drafting, etc. He confirms that he has a great relationship and that they were able to release him now to get him the best opportunity to talk to other teams before Free Agency starts.
