49ers to visit with former Seahawks cornerback Wednesday

Rumor: Seattle Seahawks to release DeShawn Shead

Former Seattle Seahawks cornerback DeShawn Shead is scheduled to visit with the San Francisco 49ers on Wednesday after a visit with the Detroit Lions on Tuesday, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

As numerous stories indicated might be the case, the Seattle Seahawks have officially released cornerback DeShawn Shead. That would have meant he was stuck with a $1.2 million salary with the Seahawks next season.

That's due to a clause in the NFL's Collective Bargaining Agreement that states that players not activated off the Physically Unable to Perform List until after the sixth game of the season in the final year of their contract must have their contracts tolled (Shead was not activated until December 23). But as detailed Saturday, the Seahawks still hope to re-sign Shead with the release being done to as something of a favor to Shead since each side assumed that when he signed previous year he would be a free agent now.

He confirmed the deal in an Instagram post Monday. But general manager John Schneider had already assured Shead that he would be an unrestricted free agent.

On the photography front, the phone features 16 million pixels + 2 million pixels Leica dual camera setup at the back. The Chinese name for Huawei P20 Lite being Huawei Nova 3E is expected to be official in the country on March 20.

As noted by ESPN's Brady Henderson, the Seahawks may even put him at strong safety since Kam Chancellor is still dealing with a career-threatening neck injury. So if his contract were to toll, he'd be signed for 2018 at the same amount. As in Shead's case, that includes players on one-year deals.

Seattle has reached an agreement on a three-year contract extension with Bradley McDougald.

Shead started all 15 games he played in the 2016 season opposite Sherman, logging one interception, 14 pass breakups and 56 tackles. We know he can play corner, and we like the way he plays at corner, but everything is open.
