Perrish Cox DB SEA 16 Days
Seahawks signed CB Perrish Cox.
He'll take the roster spot of CB Walter Thurmond III, who was officially suspended for four games on Tuesday. For now, the Seahawks are expected to go with Byron Maxwell opposite Richard Sherman, and Jeremy Lane in the slot, but Cox could eventually see time on defense. The Seahawks will also likely make another signing at cornerback.

Free agent DBs Perrish Cox and Michael Huff worked out for the Seahawks last week.
The 'Hawks have been known to sign former 49ers since the rise of the Pete Carroll/Jim Harbaugh rivalry, so it's possible Cox will get a deal. He was waived by San Francisco last Tuesday. Seattle and San Francisco will meet for the second time this season in Week 14.

The Sacramento Bee calls CB Perrish Cox one of the standouts of the 49ers' offseason program.
Per beat writer Matt Barrows, Cox has "jumped out for his aggressiveness." Cox has taken snaps both on the outside and in the slot, and has also worked on punt returns. The 49ers' secondary is perhaps the most stacked in the league, but Cox's chances of earning a roster spot appear good.

49ers CB Perrish Cox could still be facing league discipline even though he was found not guilty in his sexual assault case.
"We will review the facts," said league spokesman Greg Aiello. "That is standard procedure." Ben Roethlisberger was suspended for six games under similar circumstances in 2010, but eventually had his ban reduced to four games. Cox is allowed to participate in the Niners' offseason program.

Profootballtalk.com reports 49ers CB Perrish Cox is facing a civil lawsuit from the woman he was acquitted of sexually assaulting.
As is Cox's former teammate Demaryius Thomas, who was present "around" the time of the alleged assault, but never charged with a crime. As Profootballtalk points out, the lower standard of proof in civil cases means Cox could be hit with a costly judgment even though he was acquitted in his criminal case. The Niners surely knew of such a possibility when they signed Cox in March.
