Patriots have best odds to land Richard Sherman, per Vegas

Come on, now. Of course it would be the New England Patriots who’d be the clear-cut favorites to land the newly unemployed Richard Sherman.

The odds are already out on which NFL team will obtain the services of the future Hall of Fame corner and yes, it’s those Pats, according to Vegas.

Bookmaker has the Pats at +350 to land the Super Bowl champ, closely followed by the Chicago Bears.

To round out the favorites, the Oakland Raiders open at +550, Los Angeles Chargers at +600, Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +900, and the San Francisco 49ers, Cleveland Browns and Atlanta Falcons who all find themselves at +1,500. The rest of the field sports a +1,400.

Just think Revis—Darrelle Revis, that is. Just think Junio Seau. Just think Rodney Harrison or Corey Dillon. Bill Belichick loves to take in those veteran cap casualties and bring them in on a value-ladened deal, preaching and selling “winning” as a reward in favor of the player sacrificing money.

The Bears in the runner-up spot is an interesting one, but they are a team in desperate need of corner help, especially with the status of young Kyle Fuller in doubt while on the transition tag.

Sherman is a product of Compton, California. The Los Angeles Chargers in the third spot makes a ton of sense as a homecoming of sorts would play heavily should one of the greatest corners in history decide to move down south along the west coast.

Wherever he lands, the Stanford grad should immediately help a secondary in need of improvement.
