Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Friday, January 27 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Sherman: Tom Brady "A Dragon That's Not Easily Slain"

With just over a week until the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots square off in Super Bowl LI in Houston, Texas, plenty of NFL title game previews have started to pour in, and one of those early looks at next weekend's contest comes from the 2017 Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida, where Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman recently joined an ESPN broadcast to share his thoughts on how the game will play out. 

"I see it being a close game," said Sherman, whose Seahawks were eliminated in the Divisional Round at Atlanta. "I see [Patriots head coach] Bill Belichick finding a way — you're not stopping [Falcons receiver] Julio Jones, unless you tie him to his bed the night before, you're not getting it done — but I think they've [the Patriots] shown that they're adept at finding ways to schematically contain guys. I think that they're going to find a way to do that.

"I don't think it's going to be a 40-45 [point] game because Super Bowls rarely are, but I do think it comes down to the fourth quarter. The quarterbacks are playing great, but Tom Brady's not easily slain. He's a dragon that's not easily slain. We've battled with him up and down. Every year we've battled him it's a dog fight, it's to the last second, it's to the last drive, it's to the last play, and I think this is going to be another one of those games. Who wins the last play?"

Super Bowl LI kicks off at 3:30 p.m. PT on Sunday, February 5 with national television coverage on FOX.
