Walter Thurmond returns to Seahawks, Perrish Cox cut

Pete Carroll AP

Walter Thurmond is back from his four-game suspension.

Thurmond, who missed the last four weeks because the NFL suspended him for violating its substance-abuse policy, has been activated from the roster exempt status and is now on Seattle’s 53-man roster.

The Seahawks’ secondary hasn’t seemed to miss Thurmond, but having him back for the playoffs won’t be a bad thing.

With Thurmond back, the Seahawks have released cornerback Perrish Cox, who signed after Thurmond’s suspension and played in two games.

    Aren’t they 2-2 during that span….hasn’t missed indeed.

    Michael David Smith: Seriously? You think the reason they’ve lost two games is because they were missing Thurmond? In one of those losses, they gave up 168 passing yards and had four interceptions. In the other loss, they gave up 155 passing yards and had one interception. Do those really sound like losses that should be blamed on the secondary?

    This guy is going to make some money next year.

    Thurmond will come back as the nickel back. Maxwell will keep his spot starting at Right Corner after proving himself in Thurmond’s absence.

    Doubt Thurmond is better than Maxwell at this point, so he’s back to being a backup.
    Harvin isn’t going to the injured reserve! Meaning he’ll in the playoffs! Let’s go hawks

    No big deal, Perrish. You could easily make more money selling drugs to the Seahawks than playing for them.

    Does that mean Percy Harvin has a chance to return? Word on the street was that he’d by placed on IR on Thurmond’s return.

    Playing the Rams Sunday, the offensive line opening holes for Lynch and protecting Wilson is much more important than that selfish Thurmond.

    NFL players should wildcat strike just before the last week of the season, at a time the league is most vulnerable and they can bring the whole enterprise to its knees. Demands:

    * No fining defensive players insane amounts of money just for playing the game

    * No treating bottom roster players like temps who can be paid for a game or two then cut at will

    * Full-time, paid referees, not these part-timers

    * Pension and retirement plan for all players

    * Minimum wage for NCAA players or cut ties with a corrupt college system that exploits an unpaid workforce

    How many drug related , abuse or performance, have the Seahawks had this year? Being a pats fan I don’t pay to much attention to the hawks but it seems like everytime I turn around one of their guys was getting popped.

    How many Seahawks have been suspended? It seems like the entire defense has for one reason or another…I wonder who is their “Strength and conditioning” coach, Victor Conte?

  11. golforepar says: Dec 27, 2013 9:06 PM

    Why don’t they just put a drug testing lab right in the Seachickens headquarters!

    Embrace the Pete Carrol culture of cheating, hawk fans.

    It ain’t going away anytime soon.

  13. ceraser45 says: Dec 27, 2013 10:00 PM

    Idiots…He said THEY HAVENT MISSED HIM. Can you just not read?

  14. jackdaniels1 says: Dec 27, 2013 10:06 PM

    Good, now Perrish can go back to his true passion of roofying and having his way with unsuspecting women

  15. gohawks7 says: Dec 27, 2013 10:32 PM

    In both their losses the past 4 weeks the def wasn’t able to hold a lead late in the game. Regardless of how many passing yards the defense gave up in total, maybe those 2 4 qtr drives could have been avoided.

    Yea they signed Cox to get all the 49er dirt they could, hopefully SF resigns him to get all the Seawah dirt they can.

    I understand the Seahawks have more players on the All-Drug Suspension Team than anyone else. Coach Carroll is bringing the same high character people to Seattle that he had at USC.

    Wherever hes gone Pete cheats.

  19. beastmode5150 says: Dec 28, 2013 10:34 AM

    How did Pete cheat?

  20. bigplay27 says: Dec 28, 2013 11:09 AM

    All the Pete Carroll hate is hilarious. Nothing but comments from ill educated morons. Grow up and learn how to talk trash. Using the Pete Carroll cheats thing is as played out as “your mama” jokes.

  21. northstarnic says: Dec 28, 2013 12:11 PM

    The juice is loose! Does the league do testing before playoffs start? If so, what’s the over under on PEDhawks having enough eligible players to fill a roster?

  22. beastmode5150 says: Dec 29, 2013 10:30 AM

    What Seahawks are on PED’s?
