With Walter Thurmond suspended and Brandon Browner injured, the Seahawks signed cornerback Perrish Cox a couple of weeks ago to give them some depth.
They changed their mind a day later, though, and waived Cox to make room for DeShawn Shead from the practice squad. Something about Cox must have stuck in the mind of General Manager John Schneider and coach Pete Carroll, though, because they’ve reversed course and brought him back to the team.
The Seahawks announced Wednesday that they have signed Cox and placed safety Jerron Johnson on injured reserve. Johnson was mostly used on special teams this season and is being shut down because of a hamstring injury.
Cox played nine games for the 49ers earlier this season. Thurmond is suspended for another two games while Browner has practiced a little while also fighting his own suspension for a substance abuse policy violation, although Cox isn’t likely to jump right into the lineup at corner.
