Marcus Trufant worked out for Seahawks today

    One possibility to replace Browner/Thurmond? Former Seahawks star Marcus Trufant, who worked out for them today. Would be a cool story


    Not too excited about that...Tru seemed kinda done...much love for his past excellent contributions...

  • I mean, we never know. Maybe he's been recovering from an injury that was never reported last year? Giving him a chance to show us what he can do again is an option. Don't be so quick to shut him down.

    Well, anyone we get is not currently on an NFL rostered. Yet, here we are, down two CBs and past the trading deadline.

  • I said this in another thread today, and basically I like the fact that we are bringing in multiple guys to see how they are looking TODAY and not relying on old game film and hoping they are still the same player they were previously. The more bodies they bring in, the better they can evaluate and make the best decision moving forward. Do I believe that will be Trufant? Not really, but how does it hurt to take a look?

    Exactly. Throw everything at the wall and see what sticks.

    I think his 'fro would protect him from concussions but wasn't he picked in the 192nd round by the Brooklyn Giants?

  • We made it two rds into the playoffs with Tru last year. If he can make the team, then great. Not thrilled by all this, but we gotta find the best we can. Not like great talent is just lying around.

    I question his selfishness. I don't think he'd want it enough.

  • Ah, I was wondering earlier today if we were going to hear this name. I don't see why not. I didn't think he was that bad last year. A healthy Marcus Trufant can play dime in this league, maybe be a marginal nickel. I'd rather see him out there than quite a few guys.

    He is horrible dude. He couldn't make the jags where he knew the system and they had no talent.

  • Ultimately, we're talking about a depth corner. A guy who takes Lane's previous spot on the chart i.e. is only expected to play DB in an emergency. In that situation, familiarity with the scheme may be more important than raw ability. This is why Trufant, Winfield and Shead might more sense for Seattle than they do for other teams.
