49ers Sign Sherman, 25/1 to win SB

49ers 25/1 to win Super Bowl following signing of Richard Sherman 3/12/18

The San Francisco 49ers signed cornerback Richard Sherman over the weekend. Here's a look at the Niners' Super Bowl odds following the move.

According to oddsmakers from online sportsbook YouWager, the 49ers opened as 25/1 long shots to win the Super Bowl and that's where their odds currently stand. The Patriots remain favored to win next year's NFL title at 6/1, followed by the defending champion Eagles at 17/2.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported over the weekend that the Niners signed Sherman, formerly of the Seahawks, to a three-year, $39.15 million contract. The deal includes a $5 million signing bonus and was negotiated by Sherman himself. It took the cornerback only 24 hours to land a new deal after being let go by the Seahawks on Friday.

The Lions and Raiders were reportedly interested in Sherman as well but he wanted an incentive laden deal and neither team was comfortable with that sort of contract. So Sherman winds up in San Francisco and will have an opportunity to play his former team twice a year. It's an opportunity that Sherman reportedly relishes.

The 29-year-old has been one of the league's best corners since arriving as a fifth-round pick in 2011 and he gives San Francisco's secondary an immediate boost. It's a homecoming of sorts for Sherman, who played college ball at Stanford. He's coming off a torn Achilles so it'll be interesting how effective he'll be this season.
