The Seattle Seahawks have said they’re open to trading Richard Sherman, their All-Pro defensive back. But whomever wants to trade for him should be prepared to pay a stiff price.

The Miami Herald reported the Seahawks want a “very good player” and a “high draft pick” in exchange for the 29-year-old defensive back. The Herald didn’t define those terms, so we don’t know what a “high draft pick” means.

Sherman is a three-time All-Pro, Super Bowl (2014) winning defensive back in the prime of his career. He’s signed for two more years at $11 million per and becomes a free agent after the 2018 season.

Since 2011, Sherman leads the league with 30 interceptions, and he hasn’t missed a game in six years.
