RENTON – Pete Carroll has had big cornerbacks on his teams before.
But two starting at the same time? Never.
Such is the unique luxury the Seahawks have in Brandon Browner (6 feet 4, 221 pounds) and Richard Sherman (6-3, 195), who have impressed not only in stature, but in production in their first years in Seattle.
“I love the way these guys are playing,” Carroll said. “They have tremendous upside. They’re just getting started.”
The Seahawks’ Week 10 opponent, Baltimore, has noticed.
“Defensively, I can’t believe how well the two young corners are playing,” said Ravens coach John Harbaugh, referring to Browner and Sherman. “These two guys, they’re tall and long and they’re probably a pretty good matchup for our guys.”
