Richard Sherman walked into what used to be enemy territory at the home of the San Francisco 49ers decked out in a red suit to match his new team after switching sides from Seattle in this fierce NFC West rivalry.

Sherman still must wait a bit to put on a red 49ers jersey Blake Martinez Jersey , but he vows it will be sooner than some people expected considering he is coming off surgery on his right Achilles tendon that ended his final season with the Seahawks and led to his release earlier this month.

Sherman said he is already back on the treadmill following that surgery and another operation to repair bone spurs in his left heel and hopes to be back on the field by May or June and at full speed by the starting of training camp this summer.

”There are some people that are cut from a different cloth and built from different things and I think I’m one of those people,” Sherman said Tuesday. ”I look forward to showing people that you can come back better from things. … I look forward to coming back better than ever. I’ve got a lot of things to show a few people.”

Sherman showed plenty on the field during his seven years in Seattle, where he developed from an overlooked fifth-round pick out of Stanford into the prototypical lockdown cornerback who shut down opposing receivers and let them know about it with his colorful trash talk.

Sherman showed similar skills defending the three-year contract he negotiated himself with the 49ers. The deal is worth up to $39 million but much of it is tied to incentives for playing time and awards and little is guaranteed, according to Pro Football Talk. That led to criticism from players like Joe Thomas, former executives like Joe Banner and some in the media.

Sherman got a $3 million signing bonus, a $2 million salary for 2018 and a $2 million bonus if he passes a physical before Nov. 11. The rest of his salary is tied to per-game active roster bonuses and rewards for being named to the Pro Bowl or All-Pro teams.

If he gets those honors and plays at least 90 percent of the defensive snaps and all 16 games this season, Sherman could make $13 million this year, more than he was due to make with no guaranteed money in the final year of his deal with the Seahawks.

”The biggest misconception is that it’s a bad deal,” he said. ”If you’re comparing it to my last deal in Seattle Trevor Siemian Jersey , I had no money guaranteed. … I’m coming off a ruptured Achilles, what do I have? What security do I have there? With this deal, I get $5 million guaranteed, which is half of my other contract. I get the ability to make more than I could have done whether I played at an All-Pro level or not in Seattle. And that’s really all that I wanted. I play at the level that I’m capable of. I feel security in the upcoming years and I felt comfortable with that. I’m great with that.”

Sherman said it was important to him to negotiate his own deal and he studied other cornerback contracts before the 5 hours of negotiations with 49ers cap specialist Paraag Marathe and general manager John Lynch.

Sherman pointed out that many of the contracts negotiated each offseason by certified agents come with lofty sticker prices that players never get to see because of few guarantees.

He said he has already heard from other players interested in doing their own deals in the future and expects more to come.

”I think these agents sometimes benefit from relationships. `Oh, I know this GM. We’ve had dealings with for years.’ They really don’t have to do a ton of work. `Hey, I called this guy. How much are you willing to give him? Oh, $5 million? OK. I’ll convince him that that’s good enough,”’ Sherman said. ”Instead of guys being able to control their own destiny, being in control of their own finances and I think it goes back to just educating our players in general on their own finances and being in control of your own life. I think more of our players are.”

Michael Vick's second try for a football championship in Atlanta will come as a coach.

Atlanta was announced on Wednesday as the choice to join Orlando as franchises in the new Alliance of American Football that will begin play next February.

The Atlanta Alliance has hired former NFL coach Brad Childress as its head coach. Vick Arik Armstead Jersey , the former Falcons quarterback, will serve as Childress' offensive coordinator.

"I want to bring a championship to the city of Atlanta," Vick said. "It's always been a dream of mine, and now I have another shot."

Atlanta is the second city to get a franchise in the league that was created by Pro Football Hall of Fame member Bill Polian and longtime TV and film producer Charlie Ebersol. The Alliance has a television deal with CBS and plans to open its first season the week after the Super Bowl.

Vick, 37, was the top overall pick in the 2001 NFL draft by Atlanta and was a three-time Pro Bowl selection during his time with the Falcons (2001-06). His stay ended in disgrace.

Vick served 18 months in prison following his guilty plea for a dogfighting operation in his native Virginia. He returned to play five seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, followed by short stints with the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers.

In 2017, he was welcomed back to the Falcons family by owner Arthur Blank in a retirement ceremony for Vick and receiver Roddy White.

Vick took the Falcons to the NFC championship game in 2004 but never reached the Super Bowl.

"When I accepted the job and thought about what it would take to bring this city a championship, I knew that I needed to bring Michael Vick back to Atlanta Trey Flowers Jersey ," Childress said. "His connection with the city is undeniable, and his 13 years of NFL experience will make him a tremendous asset to our team. I saw firsthand his innate ability to bring out the best in those around him and I'm confident that together, we're going to build something special for the city of Atlanta."

Vick said he has "a love and passion for teaching the game of football."

"I've learned so much over the course of my career, playing for and being mentored by some of the best coaches in all of football," he said. "I'm committed to paying it forward, helping players grow and putting some of my ideas into action on the football field. To do this in Atlanta just makes it that much sweeter."

Another veteran coach, Steve Spurrier, is in charge of the Orlando team.

"There is a tremendous amount of players and coaches who deserve a chance to compete at a professional level, but only a limited and finite amount of roster spots and positions in the sport today Hayes Pullard Jersey ," Childress said. "The Alliance of American Football offers an exciting opportunity for players and coaches to launch or continue their career at the professional level during the spring, and I'm particularly impressed with its strong focus on the relationship between players, fans and the game."

The team will play at Georgia State Stadium, the former Turner Field that was home to baseball's Atlanta Braves.
