According to Danny O’Neil of 710 ESPN Radio, cornerback Tharold Simon has been generating a lot of buzz this spring.
Walter Thurmond’s departure leaves that spot open, and while Jeremy Lane filled in during Thurmond’s four-game suspension last year, Lane is a little light to be defending slot receivers. Second-year corner Tharold Simon has generated more buzz than any player over the past month, but like Lane, Simon’s skill set is more suited to playing on the outside. Phillip Adams, who was with the team in training camp in 2012, has an opportunity to earn playing time, and his bid for a roster spot could be helped by the fact that he returned punts for Oakland the past two seasons.
It seems like Seattle never has a problem with developing young corners.
