Seahawks position previews: Legion still has its Boom -
All signs point to Richard Sherman, Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor headlining the Seahawks defensive backfield in 2017, which shouldn't be taken for granted by anyone in Seattle because there was a time when that didn't look to be sure thing.  [...] there were the months of trade rumors surrounding Richard Sherman, a saga that probably elicited the same the-sky-is-falling reactions as Thomas' retirement tweet.  By comparison, that's not as career-threatening as Thomas and Sherman's situations, but for a guy whose specialty is violently throwing his body at other large, fast and strong men -- and is entering a contract year -- any sign of bodily damage is a bit worrisome.  Chancellor isn't limited by ankle pain, Thomas' broken leg didn't require offseason surgery and Sherman has a "brand new, fantastic attitude," after a contentious 2016 season.  Seahawks have CB spot up for grabs, so who will snatch it? Griffin gets praised at every turn, Lane appears to be all-in on making sure none of the newbies seize his starting job and even with a healthy Thomas-Chancellor duo, Seattle likes what McDougald brings and will make a place for him on the field.  Seattle's defensive backfield ranked third on Pro Football Focus' list of the best secondary groups, checking in behind the Giants and Patriots.
