In 2013, the group of Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner, Earl Thomas, and Kam Chancellor became known as the Legion of Boom. They were the best secondary in the league that year and played a significant role in Seattle’s first title. Michael Bennett also emerged as a dynamic wideout threat during that season, and Doug Baldwin was a significant factor in their success.
However, it wasn’t just their on-field performances that made them stand out. The deaths of Eric Garner, Michael Brown, and Tamir Rice at the hands of police inspired voices to demand change. Bennett was particularly vocal about this issue and emphasized the importance of using their platform to bring justice for the voiceless. He urged his teammates to amplify voices and share their stories to make a difference.
The group continued to speak out about police brutality via social media and news outlets. This led to an emotional team meeting where they had to choose what they were going to do with their platform. Ultimately, they decided to use their voices to advocate for change and make a difference in their communities.
