The deal is 3 years worth 39 million with a 5 million signing bonus.
Reports were that he was going to meet with the Lions later on in the week, but the 49ers did not let it get to that.
Sherman will start opposite Ahkello Witherspoon and he reunites with defensive coordinator Robert Salah, who he played for in Seattle for three years.
