Take a player-by-player look at the Seahawks' 2016 Training Camp Roster.
Good morning, 12s.
Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Wednesday, Aug. 3 - about your Seattle Seahawks:
ESPN: Wilson, Sherman, Thomas Have Best Hall of Fame Chances
Bill Barnwell at ESPN.com estimates which current NFL players are likely to get into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, basing his projections on the historical leanings of the writers who have Hall of Fame votes, which in Barnwell's words means, "an emphasis on skill-position players and postseason success at the expense of linemen who don't accrue statistics. I don't agree with that, but that's not what this piece is about."
Barnwell gives Seahawks tight end Jimmy Graham, linebacker Bobby Wagner, and defensive end Michael Bennett a 1-10 percent chance to land in the Hall of Fame, but felt more confident about these three players' chances of enshrinement in Canton:
Russell Wilson could lose it overnight -- Colin Kaepernick seemed to -- but he's only getting better. He laid the running game arguments to rest last year, with Seattle's attack only kicking into high gear after Marshawn Lynch was injured and the Seahawks moved to more of a pass-friendly attack. It's far easier to imagine situations in which he keeps it up and makes the Hall of Fame than ones in which he slips and struggles to achieve greatness. 85 percent
Richard Sherman had four Pro Bowls and three first-team All-Pro awards in his back pocket before turning 28. He produces counting stats, having accumulated eight picks in consecutive seasons, and he has that legendary moment of picking off Kaepernick on the "sorry receiver" play in the NFC Championship Game. It would take a career-ending injury or a Nnamdi Asomugha-in-Philadelphia-esque sudden drop-off in play for Sherman to miss out on enshrinement. 90 percent*
Earl Thomas is just that much better, having five Pro Bowls and three first-team All-Pro awards before turning 27. The competition at safety isn't quite as intense as it is at cornerback, and Thomas is quietly more essential to what Seattle has done on defense in years past. It's a good competition to have, and it's the third guy on the Seattle roster who is all but guaranteed to make the Hall of Fame. 95 percent
