Seattle Seahawks star Richard Sherman has signed a four-year contract extension worth $57.4 million, a deal that reportedly makes him the NFL's highest-paid cornerback.
Sherman announced the deal Wednesday on his Twitter account and blog, saying the extension includes $40 million in guaranteed money.
"The goal has always been to stay in Seattle and continue to play for the Seahawks," he wrote on his blog. "With this chapter closed, I can continue to focus on what is important -- defending our Super Bowl Championship and being the best cornerback in the NFL.
"This is a great moment for my family, foundations and the people who supported me to this point. Hard work and execution got me to this moment, the Seattle Seahawks have backed up that respect with this contract. The terms of my deal are 4 years for a total of $57.4M with $40M guaranteed. There is no other city or team that I would want to play football for."
Sherman, 26, has emerged as one of the league's top defensive players since being selected by Seattle in the fifth round of the 2011 draft.
The 6-foot-3 Sherman led the league with eight interceptions last season and was one of the most important contributors to the Seahawks' first Super Bowl championship.

Seattle keep breaking records with their players' contracts. Wilson, Wagner and Okung up next year along with a bunch of other players such as KJ Wright, Baldwin, Avril, Maxwell etc. It's going to be a very top heavy team with all those contracts and the depth will suffer as a result.
