And now, it appears it’ll only be a few more hours before the hammer drops.
An extremely talented secondary, the so-called Legion of Boom, is starting to lose some of the boom.
Seahawks have informed perennial Pro-Bowl CB Richard Sherman that they are releasing him today, per league sources.
End has come for one of the most iconic players in Seattle sports history.
Sherman will be a free agent this weekend.

It’s the end of an era for one of the best players in Seahawks history.
Selected by the Seahawks in the 2011 NFL Draft, Sherman has spent his entire career so far in Seattle. He’s a four-time Pro-Bowler, and helped guide the Seahawks to a Super Bowl win in 2014.
And if you test him with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, this is the result you’re gonna get.
Sherman’s season ended early last year after rupturing his achilles, but he’s expected to make a full recovery by the start of next season.
Even though he’s 30 years old, there are bound to be multiple teams that need secondary help and will be interested in Sherman’s services.
A bunch of teams are in the mix for Richard Sherman but the Chargers make the most sense. Where will he land? pic.twitter.com/y7CYI352YZ

He had a great run with the Seahawks, but now Sherman will be looking to move to the next chapter in his football career.
And, much like his teammates, we wish him all the best.
