The Legion of Boom 2011-2017

All good things must come to an end and for Seahawk fans, the “Legion of Boom” has ended their run. News broke yesterday that Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett was traded to Philadelphia, at the same time there were reports and cryptic tweets that corner back Richard Sherman had already started saying his goodbyes. Add the two moves with horrible and possibly career altering injuries to Cliff Avril and Kam “The Enforcer” Chancellor, and it seems the “Legion of Boom” is over.

It's obvious that Seahawks coach, Pete Carroll wants a younger and faster defense coupled with what will be a huge culture change. These moves also help free up cap space, something Seattle was desperately in need for as they only had $13 million and change in free cap space. The Richard Sherman move alone will rid Seattle of his $13 million cap hit and free up over $11 million in cap space.

The Seattle Seahawks will have a drastically different looking defense in 2018 in hopes of making the post season again, after a disappointing 2017 season.
