Eight Best Players on the 2017 Seahawks Roster
By Lee Vowell
4. Richard Sherman, Cornerback
Sherman is the fourth best player in Seattle. That is nonsense, right? No. You will see the top three Seahawks in just a minute and hopefully realize why Sherman is number four.
Plus, this number represents absolutely no disrespect to Sherman. He is a leader in the locker room, whether people want to believe it or not. Sherman is the best, or among the best, cornerbacks in the NFL. He has at least two elite years left. Sherman will most likely be in the NFL Hall of Fame one day. All that said, while Sherman is great at his position, he is not necessarily in the top three best Seahawks.
Do the Seahawks need Sherman to be at his best to reach the Super Bowl? No doubt. Are the Seahawks worse if Sherman were traded or hurt? Absolutely. Being fourth on this list is no slight. There are simply better players in Seattle.
