Signs are pointing to Richard Sherman being on the way out of Seattle. A number of conflicting reports surfaced Wednesday regarding the All Pro cornerback's future in Seattle. But he added that no official decisions or moves have been made involving the three-time All-Pro.

Seattle cornerback Jeremy Lane kicked off the intrigue earlier Wednesday with a tweet stating: "That text message got my heart hurting ... damn 25 was my Dawg #WhatsNext" Sherman wears number 25 for the Seahawks and the tweet indicated that Lane had been told Sherman was no longer with the team.

ESPN's Josina Anderson quoted Sherman as saying: "I'm good".

The team has not officially released him, but according to NFL Media, the cornerback is meeting with coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider Wednesday to discuss his future. "Kam Chancellor also posted what could be viewed as a tribute to Sherman, stating "'Chancellor of Operations' Thanks for the name" and tweeting at Sherman.

Sherman has been a vocal leader of the Seahawks defense over the past seven seasons and was a crucial piece of the Legion of Boom defense that led Seattle to back-to-back Super Bowls, including a Super Bowl XLVIII victory. "Haven't been told anything", he reportedly said. And last week, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reported that a source says Sherman is still "receptive to the idea" of joining the Patriots via trade or free agency.

But coming off an offseason in which he'll undergo surgeries to on both Achilles tendons, and entering a contract year with a cap hit of $13.2 million, Sherman's potential value on the trade market is unclear.
