That attracted Sherman, who's coming off an Achilles injury - "I think our goal is to have him back for training camp", general manager John Lynch told NFL Network's Steve Wyche on Monday - and ready to lead a younger defense.
The 49ers said Sherman came to the negotiating table prepared: he read through the contracts of all the other top cornerbacks in the league.
