49ers CB Richard Sherman to finish Achilles rehab at Stanford

Richard Sherman is back in the Bay Area.

The veteran cornerback had his introductory press conference with the San Francisco 49ers on Tuesday. Sherman signed a three-year, $39 million deal with the 49ers this month. He’s decision to join the Niners means he’s back at his old stomping grounds.

Sherman played college football at nearby Stanford University. He starred with the Cardinal before the Seattle Seahawks drafted him in the fifth round in the 2011 NFL Draft.

The veteran cornerback will be spending a lot of time at his alma mater this offseason. Sherman said he is going to continue and finish rehabbing his Achilles injuries at Stanford, per David Lombardi of The Athletic.

Sherman suffered a season-ending right Achilles injury last year with the Seahawks. He also had minor surgery on his left Achilles this offseason. The cornerback is expected to be cleared to play by training camp.
