The article that Thomas referenced, by Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, noted that Sherman's three-year, $39 million contract with the Niners was incentive-laden and has no guarantees beyond 2018, making it unlikely that Sherman will ever see all $39 million. The 49ers appear to have come out the winners of the agreement, which Sherman negotiated himself.
Sherman's new contract includes a base salary of $2 million for the forthcoming season. When the details of the contract were released, it was revealed that Sherman would have to hit several incentives to earn anywhere close to the full value of the deal. Chances are at least four of them will be off the mark, but that won't keep me from speculating with the festivities set to kick off in about 24 hours.
Should Sherman get selected to the Pro Bowl in 2018, it would be worth $8 million guaranteed in both 2019 and 2020.

Kind of takes some of the fun out of it, doesn't it? Team Scoring: 81.1 points per game, 47.2 fg pct, 34.3 3-pt pct, 71.8 ft pct. But, really, why do they even make offensive linemen run the 40? Buffalo, Creighton, Minnesota and Oklahoma got in.
What are Sherman's expectations health-wise for the upcoming season? The 49ers have skin in the game. "I'm guessing he won't pass his physical in time for camp", Thomas tweeted.
Sherman continued to address the issue on Twitter. I've got a lot of people to put on a show for. He's familiar with the defensive scheme and the coordinator running it, Robert Saleh, a former Seahawks assistant who joined Sherman, Sherman's fiancee Ashley and coach Kyle Shanahan at Friday night's recruitment dinner in Los Gatos.
Thomas then replied: "My input is always free, but rarely appreciated!" This saw him lead San Francisco to wins in each of his first five starts while passing for 1,542 yards, the most by a quarterback in franchise history over that span. "If one job fires you and another job offers you a great position I highly doubt most (people) would go back to the old job for a lot less money".
That NFC West certainly has evolved, and while the Seahawks appear in deconstruction mode, Sherman is embracing other drastic changes to a division now championed by the Rams, who acquired their veteran cornerbacks themselves in trading for Aqib Talib and Marcus Peters.
