Online sportsbook BetOnline has unveiled props bet numbers for the ultimate destination of All-Pro Seahawks CB Richard Sherman, with 11 select NFL teams that may be candidates to acquire the former Stanford University star. Let’s compare the NFL odds speculate where the mercurial 29-year might end up, or if he may end up staying put in the Emerald City.

Despite Sherman Wanting Out, BoL Destination Prop Odds See Seahawks as Chalks

Popular online sportsbook BetOnline currently has odds posted on what NFL Roster Seattle All-Pro CB Richard Sherman will be on to start the 2017/18 regular Season with 11 teams, including his current Seahawks. They have odds on them with the current betting numbers much different than ones released by fellow offshore over a week ago. Although the 29-year-old Sherman (6-3, 205) has previously said that he wants to be traded from the defending NFC West champion Seahawks, the odds at BoL reflect a feeling the four-time Pro Bowler will be on the Seattle Roster when the new season kicks off Sept. 7.

“I don’t think it’s going to happen because they want a mint for Richard Sherman,” said Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald of Pro Football Talk Live, who indicated Sherman only wants to head to a contending team.

Here are fresh Sherman Destination Prop odds from BetOnline as well as the opening odds from fellow offshore BookMaker in parentheses:


Which NFL Roster Will Richard Sherman Be On To Start 2017 Season?

Seattle Seahawks -200 (+800)

New Orleans Saints +1000 (+300)

Oakland Raiders +1000 (+400)

Atlanta Falcons +1200 (+500)

Dallas Cowboys +1200 (+550)

Pittsburgh Steelers +1200

Green Bay Packers +1200 (+1600)

Tennessee Titans +2000 (+600)

Detroit Lions +2500

New England Patriots +2500 (+3000)

Philadelphia Eagles +2500

Jacksonville Jaguars N/L (+1200)

Field N/L (+350)


Conclusions, Two Possible Decent Big-Name Destinations

Despite sentiments, Sherman belongs in the Emerald City with his Legion of Boom buddies Kam Chancellor, Earl Thomas, DeShawn Shead and Jeremy Lane. The problems Sherman caused in the Seahawks locker room in 2016 were detrimental to the team and HC Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider have likely seen enough and want to cut bait on the veteran, but don’t want to be sold short despite reportedly dropping the asking price for Sherman.

With the NFL Draft coming up later this month and the Seahawks reportedly looking for a First- and a Mid-Round Draft Pick for Sherman who has said he doesn’t want to be dealt with a rebuilding team like the Saints, Lions or Titans, Seattle is the last place he probably wants to be. Looking to a logical contender which may be able to pull off a pre- or post-Draft trade like the Cowboys or Raiders seems more logical with both seemingly perfect fits and both Dallas and Oakland needing some more help in their Defensive Backfields. Sherman has an NFL-high 30 Interceptions since 2011.
