Free agent CB Marcus Trufant worked out for the Seahawks on Monday.
Trufant, 33 next month, spent the first ten seasons of his career in the Great Northwest before signing with the Jaguars this past offseason. He was a part of Jacksonville's final cuts and has been on the street ever since. The Seahawks are trying to replace CBs Walter Thurmond III and Brandon Browner. Thurmond III has been suspended four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy, while Browner is reportedly facing a suspension of his own. Mon, Nov 25, 2013 07:39:00 PM

Jaguars waived or released CB Marcus Trufant, WR Jeremy Ebert, DE Pannel Egboh, RB Jonathan Grimes, LB Brandon Marshall, WR Charly Martin, OT Pat McQuistan, OG Drew Nowak, CB Kevin Rutland, DT D’Anthony Smith, LB Julian Stanford, WR Toney Clemons, DE Ryan Davis, DT T.J. Barnes, OT R.J. Dill, TE Ryan Otten, WR Tobais Palmer, QB Matt Scott, S Steven Terrell and LB Mike Zimmer.

The Jags didn't mess around, paring the roster down to 54 in one fell swoop. They'll get to 53 by stashing Justin Blackmon on the reserve/suspended list. Scott's release means Ricky Stanzi slots in as the No. 3 quarterback. Trufant was reuniting with his old defensive coordinator Gus Bradley, but didn't show enough in camp coming off a dismal 2012.

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley confirmed Tuesday that new CB Marcus Trufant should primarily play in the slot, but left open the possibility that he could be used outside.

Trufant was a slot corner for the Seahawks last season, but not a good one. The Jags are wafer thin at corner, so they could decide to roll the dice on Trufant's experience outside instead of banking on second-year pro Mike Harris taking a step forward. We'll learn more in training camp.

Jaguars agreed to terms with CB Marcus Trufant, formerly of the Seahawks.

The 2003 first-round pick had previously spent his entire 10-year career with the Seahawks. Trufant is reuniting with Jags coach Gus Bradley, who was his defensive coordinator the past four seasons. Trufant served as the Seahawks' nickel corner in 2012, but back and hamstring injuries helped limit him to 365 snaps in 12 games. He's appeared in just 16 total games the past two seasons. Trufant struggled mightily covering slot receivers between Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman last season. The Jaguars' cornerback depth chart is wide open. We wouldn't be surprised if Trufant moves back outside and wins a starting job opposite rookie Dwayne Gratz.

Free agent CB Marcus Trufant is meeting with the Jaguars Tuesday.

Trufant played for new Jags head coach Gus Bradley in Seattle, where he saw just 365 snaps last season. In Jacksonville, he'd be a veteran presence to help the frighteningly young corner duo of Dwayne Gratz and Mike Harris.

Seahawks declared CB Marcus Trufant (hamstring) inactive for Sunday's Week 15 game against the Bills.

The Seahawks are thin in the secondary as they'll be without suspended Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond (hamstring) as well. The rest of their inactives: WR Deon Butler, CB DeShawn Shead, G Rishaw Johnson, T Mike Person and DT Jaye Howard.

Seahawks declared CB Marcus Trufant (hamstring) inactive for Sunday's Week 14 game against the Cardinals.

Trufant can't get over the hump with his hammy and it's bad timing. Brandon Browner, of course, is suspended for the final four games of the season. Otherwise, the Seahawks are healthy. Their inactives: WR Charly Martin, DB DeShaun Shead, CB Ron Parker, G Rishaw Johnson, T Mike Person and DT Jaye Howard.

Seahawks CB Marcus Trufant (hamstring) is officially doubtful for Week 13.

"We’re really surprised that popped up; it’s going to be really hard for him to get back from that," said coach Pete Carroll about Trufant's injury. With the possible suspensions of Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman looming, Trufant's health could leave the Seahawks extremely thin at corner for their playoff push over the last month of the season.

Seahawks CB Marcus Trufant (back) returned to a limited practice Friday and will be a game-time decision in Week 5 against Carolina.

Trufant has been covering the slot this season, between LCB Richard Sherman and RCB Brandon Browner. The Panthers don't really use a slot receiver much, although we suspect Trufant would match up on Greg Olsen quite a bit were he active for this game. Trufant has struggled in coverage this season.

Seahawks nickelback Marcus Trufant missed Wednesday's practice with a sore back.

It's a concern because Trufant missed 18 games between 2009 and 2011 due to back issues. If he can't go, Danny Gorrer and Byron Maxwell would step in against the Panthers Sunday.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll says CB Marcus Trufant has looked good in the slot in OTAs.

"There are a lot of nuances about this thing that he never had to pay attention to before, so he’s learning kind of like a first-timer," Carroll said. "But he has so much savvy and ability, we think that it could be a great spot for him." Making just $1 million, Trufant should be assured of a roster spot barring a disastrous camp.
Sat, Jun 2, 2012 11:43:00 AM

Seahawks re-signed CB Marcus Trufant to a one-year contract.

Trufant drew interest from the Broncos in free agency, but is likely returning to Seattle for the veteran's minimum. Now going on age 32, Trufant appeared in just four games last season before a "flare up" of his chronic back injury sent him to I.R. Trufant was drafted by Seattle in 2003 and is the longest tenured Seahawk. He won't be assured of a roster spot this summer.

Free agent CB Marcus Trufant will visit the Broncos Friday.

Originally set to earn an untenable $7.2 million in 2012, he was released by the Seahawks last week. Four years removed from being an All Pro, Trufant appeared in just four games last season before a back injury sent him to injured reserve. Interestingly enough, Trufant's agent is also the Broncos' new salary cap official.

Seahawks released CB Marcus Trufant.

We already had Trufant listed as a free agent because he was never going to be back after reworking his contract last offseason. His 2012 base salary was slated to be $7.2 million. Seattle, quietly, has one of the top young secondaries in football even with Trufant moving on. Chronic back problems will shake his market value, but Trufant should be able to find one more shot. He's 31 years old and has plenty of ties around the league, including to Falcons DBs coach Tim Lewis. Trufant was the longest-tenured Seahawk in 2011. He'd been with the club since being drafted with the 11th overall pick in 2003.
Wed, Mar 7, 2012 03:19:00 PM

Impending free agent CB Marcus Trufant is not expected back with the Seahawks in 2012.

The 2003 first-rounder is the longest-tenured of the Seahawks. He lasted just four games in 2011 before ongoing back issues sent him to injured reserve. With Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner emerging as quality starters, it's hard to believe the 31-year-old Trufant remains in the team's plans.
