Seahawks Expected To Lose CBs Brandon Browner & Walter Thurmond To Free Agency?


Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that the Seattle Seahawks are very likely to lose both CBs Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond during free agency this offseason.

According to La Canfora, both Browner and Thurmond are “coveted” by several NFL teams that have pair of cornerbacks towards the top of their free agent rankings.

Having built perhaps the best secondary in the NFL, the Seahawks will need to address the contracts of CB Richard Sherman and S Earl Thomas who are set for big raises, which means they will likely be forced to allow Browner and Thurmond to depart.

Kam Chancellor has already been rewarded with a new four-year, $28 million extension, so is only a limited amount of dollars to be spent on their secondary. Seattle will also need to address players on the offensive side of the ball such as QB Russell Wilson and LT Russell Okung at some point as well.

Jacksonville would seem like a possible landing spot for Browner and/or Thurmond, considering that their former defensive coordinator Gus Bradley is now the Jaguars head coach. They also have plenty of cap space to work with, so they are a team to keep an eye on come March.
