Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman still contends that the NFL’s decision to emphasize illegal contact and defensive holding will not affect the Legion of Boom and the defending Super Bowl champions.

Recently, Sherman reiterated that sentiment on NBC Sports Radio with Josh Elliott.

“I don’t think it’ll affect our game at all,” Sherman said.

"We’ve been playing at the line of scrimmage. And those rules have always been in place. I think they’ll affect other teams a little bit more.

"If you look at the statistics, the way the preseason has gone, it’s rarely ever affected us in a game.”
