JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — Richard Sherman, Russell Wilson and Marshawn Lynch deservedly get the attention.

Jermaine Kearse, Walter Thurmond and Malcolm Smith are just as big a reason why the Seattle Seahawks are in the Super Bowl.

Seattle may have one of the better starting lineups in the NFL, but the depth that general manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll have amassed is equally impressive. It’s the reason they can rotate eight different defensive linemen. It’s why when Brandon Browner was injured and Thurmond suspended, Byron Maxwell could step in and the play in Seattle’s secondary not suffer.

It’s a regular refrain in the Seattle locker room to hear that the Seahawks reserves could be starters on other teams. And there is some proof: in the past year 23 players once with Seattle have spent time on the 53-man roster of other teams.
