The reigning Super Bowl champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers are among several NFL teams interested in signing former Seattle Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Pelissero said Tampa Bay has “touched base” with Sherman since they need a replacement for starting cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting, who is out due to an elbow injury.

It was also reported that the San Francisco 49ers are also searching for Jason Verret’s backup after his season-ending knee injury, and they have “maintained contact” with Sherman a month after he became a free agent.

The other team interested in Sherman is his former employer, the Seattle Seahawks, who have been open about “a potential reunion.”

However, the road seems to be bumpy for Sherman since he still has to deal with his legal situation.

Sherman was charged with five misdemeanors following an incident back in July where he crashed his car into a construction zone and tried to force his way into a family member’s home.

The 33-year-old had a felony burglary domestic violence charge against him dismissed, but his other four misdemeanors are still pending, including a DUI and second-degree criminal trespass.

Sherman was a vital part of Seattle’s Super Bowl XLVIII championship team. He was named to the First-team All-Pro three times and selected five times to the Pro Bowl. Overall, he has recorded 484 tackles, 36 interceptions, and three touchdowns.
