Seahawks likely to lose Browner, Thurmond to free agency
It's the league's most-feared secondary, which is why Jason La Canfora says to expect the Seahawks to get raided this offseason, with Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond the duo likely to leave.

Both are coveted by several teams who have the duo sittiing atop their free-agent rankings. While overshadowed by guys like Richard Sherman and Earl Thomas on a national level, the duo are well positioned to earn big raises in free agency, with it unlikely the Seahawks will be able to get them extended before then.
The Seahawks have already made Kam Chancellor a highly paid safety, and Thomas, who is having an MVP-type season, has his deal is up following the 2014 season. Sherman is considered by some the best corner in the game, and his deal is up following the 2014 season as well. Both will be earning exponentially more than the combined $4.5 million they are set to make next season, and with so many other areas of the roster to address as well, other clubs will be quick to try to pry the Seahawks' other talented corners away.
Browner has been a standout since emerging from the CFL, and Thurmond has battled injury issues, but when healthy has performed at a very high level and is well regarded by other organizations
