Despite rumors that the Seattle Seahawks could lose as much as a second round pick for not disclosing a knee injury to Richard Sherman, Ian Rapoport reports on Sunday that they will not be penalized heavily, if at all.

The salt was heavy on the replies.

It’s believed that Seattle will be turning clouds away this year and using the tears from these fans as rain instead.

The Seahawks are already docked a fifth round pick for violating training camp practice rules last year, and it was believed that this punishment would just bump that penalty up from a fifth, to as much as a second.

Perhaps that was never true. Perhaps the NFL realized how they’d be revealing a double-standard, since Andrew Luck and Blake Bortles recently had undisclosed injuries as well with no rumors of penalties for those teams. We may never know, if the league doesn’t penalize the Seahawks for this. Let’s hope we never know.
