The Seahawks and 49ers have built up a good rivalry over the last couple of years and it has included several players shuffling between the two teams.
There could be another one added to the list. Cornerback Walter Thurmond said on Twitter that he’s headed to San Francisco to visit with the 49ers. Thurmond seems to anticipate what kind of reaction that news will get from Seahawks fans.
“It’s never personal it’s business, just how the Hawks let Red [Bryant] and everyone else walk. Obviously there is a reason I haven’t signed back yet,” Thurmond wrote. “People need to chill, I haven’t made a decision. It’s a visit. You know like college recruiting,same thing smh”
Thurmond, who is No. 60 on PFT‘s list of the top free agents, wrapped up a visit with the Jaguars before heading to San Francisco, which means that, for now, he’s not hopping on the Seattle-to-Jacksonville pipeline that Bryant and defensive end Chris Clemons have taken to reunite with former Seahawks defensive coordinator and current Jaguars coach Gus Bradley.
