Veteran defensive back Richard Sherman is one of the most high-profile free agents still on the market as free agency enters Day 3 of negotiations. Multiple teams have been linked to the five-time Pro Bowler, but no deal has been struck yet.

In an attempt to possibly get his market going, Sherman made a pitch to prospective teams on Twitter.

Sherman sent out four different graphics that highlight his NFL accomplishments so far. Now, some might think the move is self-indulgent, but the veteran is one of the few players in the league that acts as his own agent, so doing a little free advertising can't hurt.

Las Vegas Raiders head coach Jon Gruden made his interest in Sherman known before free agency officially started, and the New Orleans Saints are said to be another team in the mix for the cornerback's services.

While injuries limited him to five games in 2020, Sherman is just one season removed from a Pro Bowl nod in 2019, when he racked up 3 interceptions and 11 passes deflected during the San Francisco 49ers' Super Bowl run.

The veteran is surely headed somewhere for the 2021 season, but perhaps his self-marketing efforts will help get the ball rolling.
