What's left of the Legion of Boom in Seattle at this point is just a memory of the glory that used to be. The Seahawks' recent release of perennial All-Pro corner Richard Sherman was just another nail in the coffin.


GM John Schnieder is expected to hang onto Earl Thomas, though, but it's getting harder to trust that initial decision as the offseason continues to unfold. Another uncertainty is the future of safety Kam Chancellor, who struggled to stay on the field last season and only played nine games.


And with the Seahawks front office signing safety Bradley McDougald to kick off free agency on Monday, there's a good chance the soon-to-be 30-year-old Pro Bowler's fate is sealed.

Chancellor is still under contract until 2020 and set to earn a little over $7 million in 2018. But with serious injuries quite possibly signaling the beginning of the end of his football career, it's hard to picture him remaining a Seahawk much longer. Cutting him before June 1 would cost the team over $4 million in salary cap space, as he has currently accrued $14.3 million in dead cap space.

Despite the math, now that Sherman and Michael Bennet are out, it feels certain Chancellor will follow. The Seattle front office has completely committed to a rebuild, and there is no turning back.
