This means the Seahawks will likely have to cut some players and it appears Sherman is one of them.
But the team said only that it had nothing to announce and a later report said only that he would talk to Carroll and Schneider at some point on the phone over the next day or so, with ESPN's Adam Schefter stating that Sherman is headed to Las Vegas for NFLPA meetings.
"That text message got my heart hurting... damn 25 was my Dawg #WhatsNext" Lane tweeted.

Even if there are some concerns surrounding Sherman after watching his season come to an end in November past year after suffering a ruptured Achilles tendon, it should be noted that he appeared to be ahead of schedule last month, which is great news for any potential suitors.
Sherman reportedly met with the Seahawks on Wednesday and the team is now considering trade options.
Sherman, who signed a four-year deal with the team back in 2014, ruptured his Achilles in week 10 this past season. "They could trade him or release him, or potentially keep him (likely at a different salary)", National Football League insider Ian Rapoport wrote on Twitter.
