Seahawks acquired CB Marcus Burley from the Colts for a sixth-round pick.

A 2013 UDFA, Burley didn't appear in any games with the Colts last year and spent time on the Eagles and Jags practice squads. He put together a strong preseason, grading out as the No. 3 overall corner by Pro Football Focus. Burley adds a speed complement to Seattle's secondary. He should open the year as the No. 5 corner, and perhaps eventually push for time in dime packages.
