Stanford alum and All-Pro corner Richard Sherman served as his own agent in his recent contract negotiations with the 49ers.

Not everyone — such as Cleveland Browns tackle Joe Thomas — seems to think it was such a smart move for Sherman to broker the deal, but the new 49ers isn’t here for the criticism…

For what it’s worth, Paraag Marthe, the club’s Executive Vice President of Football Operations and newly named President of 49ers Enterprises, is a famously skilled contract negotiator, most notably fleecing Colin Kaepernick.
