Sherman, a four-time Pro Bowler, spent his first seven NFL seasons with the Seahawks. But after he was released by Seattle in the offseason, Sherman agreed to a three-year contract reportedly worth up to $39.15 million with San Francisco.
Sherman told the NFL Network this week he’s excited to play with his new quarterback.
“I wouldn’t have signed with the team if I didn’t believe in Garoppolo,” Sherman said.
San Francisco acquired Garoppolo from the Patriots for a second-round pick in November. Garoppolo recorded 1,560 passing yards and eight total touchdowns in six games and five starts for the 49ers.
San Francisco, which finished 2018 with a 6-10 record, won all five of Garoppolo’s starts. He signed a five-year, $137.5 million extension with the 49ers in February.
Sherman said that before he joined San Francisco he studied film of Garoppolo.
