When the Seahawks won the Super Bowl after the 2013 season, their secondary was largely viewed as the best in the NFL. But has it lost a step heading into 2016?
Not according to the 28-year-old Richard Sherman, who says the secondary group that includes himself, 27-year-old Earl Thomas, 28-year-old Kam Chancellor, 31-year-old Brandon Browner, 25-year-old Jeremy Lane and 25-year-old Tharold Simon is just getting warmed up.
“We’re hitting our prime, that’s what I’d say,” Sherman said on 710 ESPN Seattle. “I think at the beginning with our infancy when we started this thing, it was our second, third years in the league. Now we’re [in our] sixth, seventh years in the league. We’re much more veteran. We have a great understanding of what’s being asked of us and how to approach the game.”
Sherman believes the Legion of Boom has many good years ahead of it.
