Seahawks sign Perrish Cox again

49ers Packers Football AP

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.

    I see some potential in Cox and think he would have been a good pickup for the Lions in lieu of a bunch of players who I think offer absolutely nothing. I’d rather see what Cox can do in place of some of them. He has had a rough past, and very little support or chance from an NFL team. If he gets into the right situation with somebody that can work with him and is willing to work with him, then he could be a useful player. Decent prospect.

    The Seahawks obsession with the 49ers and Vikings continues…

    They are clearly jealous of the superior franchises.

    Niners fan here, nice signing. He wasn’t half bad for us, certainly not as ghastly as Asomugha, wouldn’t have minded if we kept him around. Dunno if he gets much playing time because their depth is gnarly. That INT their backup CB had on Kap in the redzone was sick.

    Maybe they only cut him to save money or see if browner was going to be active again soon. I’m baffled by his situation as minor as it is. He provides depth not sure they will rely on for anything else.

    Signing Cox, this time, was undoubtedly due to K.J. Wright injuring a foot on Sunday, versus the Niners. PC and JS, are big believers in maintaining depth across the board. They’ll put Malcolm Smith, into Wright’s slot which will leave the defensive backups a tad thin.

    Clearly.

    Yes the Seahawks aspire lose conference championships and Superbowls just like the mighty Vikings. Heck, they’ve already lost one Superbowl so far. We’re on our way!

    Can’t Seattle and San Fran just share their practice squad guys?

    Between them it’s been about 10 guys they’ve picked up from each other.

    Cox must feel like a ping pong ball. Back and forth…

    it was fun beating seattle, yay!

    I’m sure it was, masteree. Total domination. Well, ok, maybe winning by 2 points after we lost one of our starting linebackers isn’t exactly ‘total domination’. But hey, a wins a win. Congratulations! You have a solid shot at the wildcard!

    Seahawk fans are funny. Loud mouths when winning and blaming penalties and injuries when they lose. What a crock!!!

    Now as a Niner fan it pains me to say that the SeaChickens are still a better/more well rounded team and certainly playing more consistent ball this season. But stop crying and blaming losses on “penalties” or the “KJ Wright loss”. Wa Wa Wa. KJ Wright sucks!!!! We played without Iupati, Staley was banged up, Crab not 100%, CB Brown out. Maybe we should become more like the SeaChickens an take PEDs year in and year out!!!

    Thank you Earl Thomas for that terrible angle that allowed a 30 yr old Gore to run right by you like you were not even there. And he is the best safety in the league Seahawk fans?? Drugs! You are on drugs!!!

    Go 49ers!!!

    Hey, Jimbo, here’s an idea: How about after every game, all the players from every team have to pee into a bucket, then the league tests the buckets. If they find ANY banned substance, the entire team forfeits the next game.

    How many teams do you think would hit the field the next weekend?

    Niners won. Congrats on that; they had to have the win, and played like it.

    But I think we all know if Russell Wilson would have had a minute and a half instead of 26 seconds, there is a VERY good chance he would have at least put the Hawks in field goal range, if not a TD.
