Cliff Avril has Leroy Hill's #, so he's gone. I think we've known that Trufant probably won't be coming back but i'd say Winfield's signing makes that a 100% certainty.

We now have no players left over from the Super Bowl team. Its amazing how fast rosters turn over in the NFL.

I'm not even sure we have any guys on our coaching staff or very many guys in the front office who are still left from the last run.

Is Paul Allen the only one?

Must be time to get back to another Super Bowl!

There is some melancholy or bittersweet or something poetic in that.

I honestly wouldn't be entirely surprised to see the Vikings pick up Trufant.

I DEFINITELY expect them to draft his brother.

Just as one chapter ends, a new one begins. Very soon, we will have 95%+ of our superbowl players back. :th2thumbs:

Really it's surprising how long Tru and Hill lasted as the last two Superbowl players. It had been just them for 2 or 3 years nous if I remember correctly.

Depends on the quality of players we draft, if we pick up a stud corner then he'll go I reckon.
People remember that Trufant let a lot of balls get caught in front of him... but how many did he let PAST him? He only allowed one TD all year too.

I reckon he stays another year - we know just how much Carroll loves a strong secondary and I hope he stays too, 10 years with the team I'd love to see him sign off with a ring.

Farewell 2005 Super Bowl squad, gone but not forgotten. Time for some new legends.

EDIT: Trufant is a FA, so the team would have to re-sign him and I don't see that happening. Then again, I thought he wouldn't be back last year so who knows. Maybe we are burying the team too early?

I always felt people were too tough on Tru these last couple of years. There's a reason he was the last 2005 guy standing. Dude could ball. He had to transition to slot CB because the team didnt have depth there, and it's arguably the toughest cover position on the field. Our lack of pass rush did him no favors, and he was only meant to be a depth guy last year. The man made his tackles and was probably invaluable to the development of our young, elite DBs, too.

Wouldn't be surprised if this was a wrap for him in Seattle, but I could also see them bringing him back as a pure depth guy.

Leroy Hill always finds his way back somehow. It isn't over till it's over.

God bless that team for finally realizing a dream...Getting to the Super Bowl. All these years later, the .NET shirts I had made up in 2006 still stands true.

Unfinished Business.

Kinda sad. Hope Tru has a chance to win a SB somewhere. He deserves it.

Marquand Manuel being on the coaching staff now is the only link that comes to mind. Hopefully there is an SA or Holmgren NFCCG flag raising to come.

He came with Pete Carroll. He was linebacker coach at USC with Pete.

He came back last year on a 1 yr deal. He is a free agent.

If he is gone.....................THANK YOU Tru for all your time, quality play and true professionalism as a Seahawk. You've always been one of my favorite Hawks in large part because you've been a state of Washington guy your whole career/life but also because of the always classy way you've represented our home state and the teams you've played for. In my mind, and the minds of many fans of the team, you have that ring from '05. So sad it's not official.
