Legion of Boom
Seahawks general manager John Schneider said that Lane, 24, would need knee surgery this offseason
Richard has been a defensive backs coach with Seattle since the 2010 season
David Mulugheta, Thomas’ agent, confirmed the injury and need for surgery in an email to The Associated Press on Thursday
CB Sherman and S Thomas were also playing through injuries. Pete Carroll called his players’ efforts Sunday “heroic”
Seattle safety Earl Thomas (separated left shoulder) and cornerback Richard Sherman (left elbow) are damaged goods, suffering injuries in the NFC championship overtime victory against Green Bay. On Sunday, they showed little to no concern about how they will feel — and perform — against the New England Patriots.
The Seattle Seahawks have already trademarked the phrase “The Legion of Boom”
Cornerback Jeremy Lane, the Seahawks’ nickel back who plays against slot receivers, was placed on injured reserve with a groin injury Monday with the designation to return. He will miss at least the next eight weeks before he can rejoin the active roster.
He may be known for his trash-talking, but that doesn’t mean Sherman isn’t one of the most talented cornerbacks currently in the NFL. As this year’s cover athlete for Madden 15, he’s out to prove there no such thing as the “Madden Curse”.
After Sherman was announced the winner, he was quick to make one request: That the other members of Seattle’s ‘Legion of Boom’ be allowed to join him on the cover.
Kevin Major of Rant Sports lists “secondary help” as one of the biggest 2014 NFL Draft needs for Seattle, noting that two power players in Seattle’s secondary — Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas — are going to be free agents after next season.
