Former Seahawks cornerback and current Raiders free agent target, Richard Sherman, is visiting with the 49ers Saturday.

The scheduled meeting comes after Sherman had dinner Friday night with San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan, Rapoport reported.

If healthy, Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowl selection who excels in physical man-to-man coverage, would be an ideal fit for the 49ers' 4-3 defense. Some of the moves the 49ers have made this season indicate they're trying to do just that, including signing Jimmy Garoppolo to a five-year, $137.5 million contract last month.

Sherman has spent his entire career in Seattle.

No player more than Sherman reflected the intensity of the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry when the NFC West rivals jostled from 2011-13 was at its zenith.

Sherman, 29, is coming off a 2017 campaign that saw him miss seven games with an Achilles injury.

But Sherman said at the Sports Star awards he thought he would be ready for the beginning of mini-camp. Also pursuing Sherman are the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Houston Texans, Tennessee Titans and Detroit Lions.

"I want to go to a contender", Sherman said.

The releases of Sherman and Lane leave Seattle's cornerback spot with some uncertainty heading into free agency.

The Seahawks on Wednesday traded Michael Bennett to the Eagles and are also expected to soon release defensive end Cliff Avril, who may not be able to play football again after suffering a neck/nerve injury in October that required surgery. The 49ers are a rapidly improving team with plenty of cap space. The team would be best served to bring him back as a No. 3 cornerback, but they need someone to fill in the second starting spot with Conley in 2018. In 2013, Sherman led the National Football League with eight interceptions, and his 32 career picks rank sixth among active players.
