On Roster:


  • CB Akeem Auguste
  • S Steven Terrelle
  • S Terrance Parks
  • CB Phillip Adams (contract terminated)

The Legion of Boom is also the Legion of Depth and while everyone knows Sherman, Thomas and Chancellor, Maxwell will soon be in the conversation as well as a one of the most reliable secondary players in the league.

Lane and the newly-acquired Burley will add some depth at the nickel slot and Simon and Shead will rotate in as well.

This secondary is the best in the NFL and it has been for the past two seasons now.

Adams is probably the only surprising cut, but Seattle quickly replaced him with Burley so the team didn’t really lose anything. Most Indianapolis Colts fans, where Burley was traded from, like Burley so hopefully 12s will like him too.
