Secondary?  Not from where I’m standing. To say the 2013 Seattle Seahawks were a  team blessed with a “deep roster” might be the biggest understatement of the entire NFL season. The Seahawks, thanks to smart drafting and savvy free-agent signings, were the envy of the league when it came to overall roster depth in 2013. Most would point to the secondary, known as the Legion...
