During his seven years with the Seattle Seahawks, Sherman became regarded as one of the best corners in the game and now leads the league with 32 interceptions since entering the NFL as a fifth-round draft pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
Much has been made of the Achilles tear, but it's not as if players can't return from such an injury.
That's due to a clause in the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement that states that players not activated off the Physically Unable to Perform List until after the sixth game of the season in the final year of their contract must have their contracts tolled (Shead was not activated until December 23).
The tolling rule applies to players who, in the final season of their contract, remain on PUP as of their team's sixth regular-season game.
"Richard has always been looked at as the prototypical corner in our scheme and the opportunity to have him mentor our players was one we needed to attack". Coming off a groin injury, Davis signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Bills that has $1 million tied to his being active.

Shead is now a free agent, too. Why? "And it matters that I need to be, to stay close enough to them to be able to see the kids and be able to come out and be comfortable".
While the Seahawks transition to a new era, the 49ers continue to build excitement around their franchise after closing out last season on a promising run with Jimmy Garoppolo. In my former contract, no matter what I did this year, nothing would be guaranteed to me next year.
After a seemingly amicable parting between the four-time All Pro and the Seahawks organisation, Sherman revealed to Peter King of the MMQB that his reasons for linking up with the 9ers were "vengeful".
The story also quotes 49ers general manager John Lynch as saying he thought his team offered something the others couldn't - a chance to play the Seahawks twice a year. San Francisco should be a coveted free agent landing spot for years to come.
By releasing their one-time special-teams captain into free agency, the Seahawks aren't bound to that tolling amount and can re-negotiate a new price with Shead for 2018. He already has a visit lined up with the Detroit Lions, according to Foster. The Legion of Boom could become the Legion of Doom depending on the futures of Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor. Sherman will end his career in Seattle with one Super Bowl ring (Super Bowl XLVIII), two Super Bowl appearances and five playoff runs. "We look forward to him sharing his wealth of experience and his passion for the game of football with our team". We know he can play corner, and we like the way he plays at corner, but everything is open.
