Marcus Trufant DB SEA 8 Months
Seahawks CB Marcus Trufant has retired from the NFL after 11 seasons.
Trufant, 33, will sign a one-day contract with Seattle on Thursday so he can retire as a member of the team. The former No. 11 overall pick out of Washington State spent his entire career with the Seahawks before inking a one-year deal with the Jaguars last offseason and getting released at final cuts. He spent the 2013 season on the street. Trufant started 125 games in his career, making 644 tackles, deflecting 102 passes and picking off 21 others.

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.

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.

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.
