RENTON, Wash. -- The Legion of Boom is well represented on the 2013 NFL All-Pro team, which includes Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman and safeties Earl Thomas and Kam Chancellor.

Sherman and Thomas were first-team selections and Chancellor was a second-team choice among the 50 voters for Associated Press.

It’s a remarkable achievement for one team’s secondary to place three players on the All-Pro team, but certainly deserving.

Sherman led the league this season in interceptions with eight and free safety Thomas added five interceptions. Chancellor, one of the fiercest hitters in the NFL, had three interceptions from his strong safety spot.

The Seahawks led the league interceptions with 28, including 12 in the last five regular-season games.

Seattle had three other 2013 Pro Bowlers who didn’t make the All-Pro team: quarterback Russell Wilson, running back Marshawn Lynch and center Max Unger.

Wilson might have made it, but surprisingly, Peyton Manning was he only quarterback chosen, probably because he received every vote cast.
