The Seahawks have reached out to Antoine Winfield, but that’s not the only potential addition they’re considering to bolster their thinning ranks at cornerback.
Ian Rapoport of NFL.com reports that former Seahawk Marcus Trufant worked out for the team on Monday and that Perrish Cox will visit with them on Tuesday. Trufant played 10 years with the Seahawks, but signed with the Jaguars in May as a free agent. He didn’t make the club and has been out of work since late August.
If the Seahawks do sign Cox, it will continue the trend of players ping-ponging between the Seahawks and 49ers this season. Cox played 25 games for the 49ers over the last two seasons, but was released a couple of weeks ago when linebacker Nick Moody returned from injured reserve. It’s his second visit with the Seahawks since leaving San Francisco.
With Walter Thurmond starting a four-game suspension and Brandon Browner injured and reportedly facing a year-long suspension, the Seahawks need a little depth for the next few weeks. Richard Sherman, Byron Maxwell and Jeremy Lane are the only healthy and unpunished corners in Seattle right now.
