As the NFL empire learned years ago when he was in his prime, when Richard Sherman speaks, fans and analysts listen … and are captivated by what he has to say.

Especially when it comes to one of his former teams, the San Francisco 49ers.

Though he’s still an unsigned free agent, who said in June he’d be open to the right opportunity, future Amazon NFL analyst Sherman is still not shy about making bold claims online that will garner attention. And one of those claims not only surfaced late in the afternoon on July 28, it got Sherman to say those three words: “Note it.”

Sherman still gives love to defenders. And he firmly believes the 49ers will soon have this title for their defensive backfield:

“Before this season is over there will be a lot of talk about this 49ers secondary being among the best in football. note it down” Sherman tweeted.

He then shared who would be making it big this season – newcomer Charvarius Ward and fellow cornerback Emmanuel Moseley, saying both “are a problem!”

Then Sherman shone greatly with one of his former teammates and a long-time veteran presence in secondary that he believes played at a high level.

“Jimmie Ward has been playing at the Pro Bowl level for years,” Sherman said.

Finally, his final prediction for this 49er secondary involves one of the younger 49er defenders.

“And search [safety] Talanoa Hufanga to shine,” Sherman said.

DeMeco Ryans had a 49ers DB unit last season that didn’t nab three interceptions last season.

However, six members of their 2021 defensive backfield got a pick last season and finished sixth overall in passing yards allowed.

A major reason was the fierce pass rush coupled with strong coverage. But now Ward is coming over the Kansas City Chiefs to become the newest CB No. 1. Then there is a healthier Moseley opposite him. Ryans was asked after training on Thursday if he had seen any encouragement from this group.

“Lots of encouragement,” the returning defensive coordinator said. “I’m really excited and happy with the unit we have. The guys we’re back there with, with [CB Charvarius Ward] Moony, with [CB Emmanuel Moseley] e man, [DB] Jimmie [Ward], [S Talanoa Hufanga] Hoof, [DB Tarvarius Moore] T-Moore, all of these guys did a great job. You’ve got off to a really good start. And all we want from these guys is to keep competing and getting better every day. And if they do that when we open the season, we’ll be very happy with where these guys are going to be.”

It turned out that high school was one of the biggest highlights of boot camp training at Santa Clara. According to The Athletic’s David Lombardi, every 49ers quarterback has been selected on the SAP performance field — including QB1 Trey Lance.

“Lots of encouragement,” the returning defensive coordinator said. “I’m really excited and happy with the unit we have. The guys we’re back there with, with [CB Charvarius Ward] Moony, with [CB Emmanuel Moseley] e man, [DB] Jimmie [Ward], [S Talanoa Hufanga] Hoof, [DB Tarvarius Moore] T-Moore, all of these guys did a great job. You’ve got off to a really good start. And all we want from these guys is to keep competing and getting better every day. And if they do that when we open the season, we’ll be very happy with where these guys are going to be.”
