Seahawks sign Perrish Cox

NFC Championship - San Francisco 49ers v Atlanta Falcons Getty Images

It didn’t take long for the Seahawks to fill Walter Thurmond’s roster spot.

The cornerback’s suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy was officially announced on Tuesday afternoon and the Seahawks announced a short time later that they signed cornerback Perrish Cox to bring the roster back to 53 players. Adam Schefter of ESPN reported earlier on Tuesday that Cox was the team’s choice over Marcus Trufant, who worked out for them on Monday.

Cox was a fifth-round pick of the 2010 draft by the Broncos, but was released before the start of the 2011 season. Cox didn’t play that season as he faced charges of sexual assault, but signed with the 49ers in 2012 after being found not guilty of the charges. Cox was released by the 49ers a couple of weeks ago and worked out for the Seahawks last week as well.

The Seahawks have reportedly also shown interest in Antoine Winfield as they deal with Thurmond’s suspension and Brandon Browner’s injury. If Browner goes on injured reserve, they could add another corner ahead of Sunday’s date with the Saints.

    I guess he gets to win a Superbowl now because he sure wasn’t with the niners.

  2. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 26, 2013 4:37 PM

    Sounds like a winner…complete with sexual assult charges and all. Drew Brees gonna torch em all! Getcha popcorn ready Seattle…the CHAMPS are comin’ to town, just like Santa. But we’ll be stealin’, not givin’!

    I hope you brought some bud with you dude. You want to fit in, don’t you?

  4. thepftpoet says: Nov 26, 2013 4:40 PM

    Seahawks are obsessed with the 49ers..

    Signing 49er castoffs?

    How desperate.

    I guess the rest of their team is on PEDs so they need all the depth they can get.

    Be careful boisestatewhodat…you don’t want to end up one of the many keyboard warriors who talk smack wayyy too early. Don’t forget your boys don’t exactly travel well, and they’re heading to the single best homefield advantage in pro sports.

    Can’t wait for this game. Going to be a great one.

    Just say no to drugs

  7. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 26, 2013 4:44 PM

    Saints 38, Hawks 20…Sean Payton won’t be denied this time boys. He’ll have the Saints ready to roll in prime time (as they always do in prime time games…9 in a row)!

    Plus, tomorrow’s high in New Orleans is 47 degrees with lows in the 20s. Make no mistake, the best offensive mind in the game will have the Champs outside preparing for the weather!

    Seattle is, no doubt, the toughest place to play (NOLA being second toughest) but…the Saints’ focus will overcome the 12th man…early and often!

    WHO DAT!

    I hear ya discountdoublecheck…maybe you’re right, although I don’t consider myself a keyboard warrior.

    Here’s the thing, and Sean Payton touched on this yesterday. The easy steriotype for dome teams is that they don’t play well on the road/outdoors. FACT is, New Orleans posts the best road record in the NFL since 2009, period. This isn’t an assumption, look it up. During the past 5 seasons (including the current one), no team has won more road games than the Saints. Now, playoffs are different…we’re 0-5 there so can’t talk too much trash but the fact is…that steriotype is overused and factually wrong.

    No, it’s an established fact that the Seahawks are obsessed with the Vikings. They’re even called “Vikings West” around this board.

    Try to keep up.

    ofcourse they did.

  14. thepftpoet says: Nov 26, 2013 4:59 PM

    Seahawks are obsessed with the Vikings because they have a better team around them they just don’t have a QB.

    After next year when we draft Teddy Bridgewater we will destroy every team in our path

    WHO DAT

    Are you referring to the team that lost on the road to the powerhouse Jets and dang near lost on the road last week to the equally stout Falcons with their combined record of 7-15? I will tell you WHO DAT is if you want.

  16. MasMacho says: Nov 26, 2013 5:11 PM

    ^ this guy, not so much.

    Must have not seen the past two seasons, where the Vikings didn’t have much to offer on the field.

    Normally, when you LOSE to a team twice in a row, you wouldn’t be so quick to brag about how much better they are.

    Just sayin’

  17. libradad53 says: Nov 26, 2013 5:12 PM

    Interesting choice: Considering the problems the 9ers have had off/on this season, perhaps cutting him was not a good personal choice or simply one that had to be made to get some one else back? The kid does have a basically fresh set of legs, plenty of tread in the tires and some speed, quickness. Yep, he had a brush with the law, but WAS FOUND NOT GUILTY. And most people when they have that kind of run in learn to keep their nose clean. Lets see what happens before we condemn the kid. And if he provides some insight into 9er’s defensive well all the better.

    Currently no team travels well to Seattle.
    Looking forward to what will likely be one of the best MNF games in awhile.
    Bring it on Saints.
    Hopefully Marshawn will provide more runs like the last time.

  19. MasMacho says: Nov 26, 2013 5:14 PM

    Funny how every team that visits Seattle proclaims themselves immune to the 12th man, only to kick rocks on their way out of the stadium, having learned the lesson that is the Clink.

    The saints are good, they have a better shot than they did given that our corners can’t stay off the pipe, but I doubt that the Saints are man enough to march into Seattle and take it away, and they’ll lose again in the NFC title game here, in Seattle.

    And as a token of our gratitude toward the city of New Orleans, we’ll be handing out dictionaries and free spelling tutorials. “That” does not begin with a D.

  20. bigbaldpapahawk says: Nov 26, 2013 5:14 PM

    “The Seahawks are obsessed with the 9ers”, “The Seahawks are Minnesota West”

    I guess the only difference is that the Seahawks’ win column has more wins than those two teams combined. Amirite!?

    WOOOOOOOOOO!

  21. assuredmutualdestruction says: Nov 26, 2013 5:16 PM

    Saints have struggled to beat teams that Seattle flat out destroyed (frisco and falcons).

    WHO DAT gonna beat dem Aints, you ask? I’ll tell you…

    …RUSSELL MOTHERFREAKIN WILSON.

  22. makimaguro says: Nov 26, 2013 5:17 PM

    That’s actually a pretty good pick-up at this point in the season. He’ll contribute.

  23. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 26, 2013 5:18 PM

    C’mon schmitty, really?

    Saints vs Falcons is a bitter rivalry and always a tight game…regardless of record. They played their hearts out to ruin a playoff seeding run…get real.

    Jets had our number, yes. Although you won, didn’t the Bucs have your number too? At the clink? Let Drew Brees jump out to a 21-0 lead…you won’t come back against a top 2 offense and a top 5 defense. We will see though.

  24. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 26, 2013 5:21 PM

    True Duke…Bucs played pretty well there too. Marshawn is a nightmare indeed. If I remember though, you needed that run to beat the Saints (down to their number 5 running back). Saints played pretty well there that day. This team is much better than that one.

  25. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 26, 2013 5:25 PM

    Btw, since when are the Jets a bad team? Didn’t they beat the Patriots too? This isn’t college football man…

  26. rockinchox says: Nov 26, 2013 5:26 PM

    There is far more season than this one game left. I’ll take my chances with the Seahawks remainder of schedule, albeit not as easy as it appears on the top. What I would not care to see remaining on my schedule is “at Seattle, and playing the Panthers twice” Yeah I am 12th man, but I can see the Hawks running the table after Monday’s game much easier than N.O. Should be one helluva game though, I even took personal time off from 2nd shift job to watch. And told my boss why, he had no issues with it :)_

  27. tommymomoney says: Nov 26, 2013 5:38 PM

    boisestatewhodat…

    Most of your road wins are in Tampa, Atlanta and Carolina, none of which are cold weather. Saints aren’t the same when they have to play in the cold, they lost to the JETS. Should be a close game, and the Saints could pull it off because they’re a strong team, but don’t try to cherry pick stats like that because they haven’t played road games in cold weather against teams as strong as Seattle.

    Every team has a chance to win. As the saying goes.. “Any Given Sunday”.

    This game against the Saints will be a tremendous challenge for the Seahawks. But I think they are up to it.

    Everyone loves to hate the team with the best record in the league, but we all love to watch them play. Can’t wait for this game. Go Hawks!

  30. boisestatewhodat says: Nov 26, 2013 5:55 PM

    Just for the record…I do not hate the Seahawks and scoff at the forty whiner fans for calling them cheaters. Just talkin’ trash is all…WHO DAT!

    The 12th man will be SCREAMING like a hurricane and “BEAST”, Harvin, Tate and Baldwin will be racking up the points!

    It is laughable when they do that.
    I don’t mind trash talking but it should be more or less relevant.
    Here is to hoping that the Seahawks kick DAT back to WHERE it came from…

    Perrish Cox will be picking off Doctor Moreau’s side kick on Dec. 8th.

  34. ilovefoolsball says: Nov 26, 2013 6:07 PM

    Hopefully it’s a good game. It has all the makings of being a blowout one way or the other.

    The Hawks defense could cause some early turnovers and run the ball well to control the game.

    or

    The Saints could jump out to an early lead and witness the Seahawks Offense get off to a slow start.

    Either scenario would spell disaster for the other team and likely make it impossible to recover. Hopefully it will be a competitive match regardless of who wins.
    The primetime games haven’t been the most compelling this year and this one is a real treat this late in the year.

  35. beastmode5150 says: Nov 26, 2013 6:10 PM

    Gonna be a great game between the two best teams in the NFL.

    Saints have struggled to beat teams that Seattle flat out destroyed (frisco and falcons).

    And aren’t the Seahawks the ones that almost lost to the titans. they also struggle on the road as well. Saints vs Seahawks is gonna be a great game,but don’t think just because u at home doesn’t mean it’s an automatic win.

    Gonna be Best Monday night this season

  37. thebirdofprey2 says: Nov 26, 2013 6:53 PM

    The poet is a Viking fan.

    Enough said.

  38. dukeearl says: Nov 26, 2013 7:30 PM

    Saintsallday,
    yeah, almost lost to the titans, almost lost to the bucs… almost lost to Houston…

    All of those games were played without a bunch of our offensive starters.

    Look at the more recent games when Seattle had (for the most part) their starters back.
    Road game in Atlanta 33-10
    Home game against Minnesota 41-20

    Not saying it is an automatic win, any fan would be silly to say that. I do like our chances though.

    Soon it will be Saints gotta geaux bye bye back to New Orleans… their only souvenir will be the letter “L”.

    ;o)

  39. chawk12thman says: Nov 26, 2013 8:01 PM

    In the off season, I was really looking forward to the SF/SEA matchups. That first game with SF was highly anticipated and fun. After that game, I was really looking forward to seeing the game in SF and how that would turn out. This Monday Night Football game was not on my own radar as being as important as it now has turned out to be. It is the biggest game of the year for both teams and the game of the week in the NFL. I believe that the SB NFC Representative will be the winner of this game. Here’s hoping it is a “Playoff” type of game.

    Go Hawks!

  40. rondayne33 says: Nov 26, 2013 8:04 PM

    I believe it took 49ers 30+ years to get their first one.

    Regardless, that is about as irrelevant a stat as you could possibly bring up.

    It is about as useful as bringing up the niners superbowl loss last season.

    What were the Hawks doing during the Super Bowl last year? Oh yeah, watching from home.

    Enjoy using the “irrelevant” arguments, they’re about as empty as your trophy case

    ya true, but we’ll see who’s laughing last on Monday. We’re gonna run all over the hawks. And then beat u with colston and graham!

    WHO DAT!

    “NO team travels well to Seattle”
    Well yeah sure if you just tell yourself that the Titans didn’t have you on the ropes.. or that the Bucs never took you to OT after dominating most of the game.. but since those games never happened I guess you are right… Saints will throttle Seattle.
