Should a signing not happen before Sherman leaves Santa Clara, his next visit will reportedly be with the Detroit Lions. Sherman calls his free agency an "ongoing process".
While Sherman's first stop is the San Francisco 49ers, there are several teams vying for his services.
Reports Saturday morning indicated it may not take long for Richard Sherman to find a new home after he was released by the Seahawks on Friday.
"I plan on playing five or six more years whether it's here or elsewhere", Sherman said.
The 29-year-old spent the first seven seasons of his National Football League career with the Seahawks, including their Super Bowl winning season of 2013.
Shaquill Griffin will return as the starter at right cornerback and the team is expected to tender restricted free agent Justin Coleman to return as the nickel corner.
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. Saleh has implemented a defensive system that is similar to the Seahawks.
New England enters the weekend with approximately $23 million in cap space, which should enable the team to re-sign Nate Solder and make a run at another prominent player.
Sherman has been a free agent for less than 24 hours. Prior to the injury, the 5-time Pro Bowler had never missed a game.
