Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is no longer on the trade block.

Sherman has been the subject of rampant trade discussion, with the New England Patriots reportedly interested in acquiring the four-time Pro Bowler.

Seahawks general manager John Schneider revealed on April 20 that a deal would be unlikely, and head coach Pete Carroll doubled down on that Thursday by stating there’s no chance of Sherman being traded.

“People can always call you, and there were some people, there were some conversations. I don’t think they’re going to change. I don’t think anybody’s going to offer us anything that would make it worthwhile, because there’s no draft involved and all that kind of stuff. But that’s always out there. There’s always opportunities to trade,” Carroll said on 710 ESPN Seattle.

“But the likelihood is like zero percent, it seems like. Teams don’t want to give up stuff. They don’t want to trade at times like this, and it’s really hard to navigate through a trade with experienced players during draft time. It just doesn’t happen very often.”

Carroll said that every player on the Seahawks’ roster is available for the right price, however, indicating that the offers for Sherman were substandard.

“Everybody on our team is available to somebody that wants to come get them if they want to trade for them,” the coach said.

“We don’t want to trade guys. We want to keep our guys. But we have to in an effort to always work to be better and help our team. We’ve got to listen and all that. So we went through that process. There was very open conversation about that. There was no animosity at all.”
