Walter Thurmond DB SEA 1 Day
Free agent CB Walter Thurmond III will visit the Jaguars "within the next 24 hours."
All the former Seahawks defenders want to flock to Jacksonville to play for Gus Bradley. Thurmond was thrust into a starting role last season after Brandon Browner was suspended and handled himself well on the way to a Super Bowl title. He already has a four-game suspension on his record, which will affect his market.

ESPN Chargers reporter Eric Williams thinks the team could show interest in free agent CB Walter Thurmond III.
Williams is simply thinking out loud here, but the Chargers' need for cornerback help is no secret. The Bolts swung and missed on Derek Cox last offseason and are expected to release him. Shareece Wright is the only starting-caliber corner on the roster. Thurmond will likely be looking for a starting job after operating as Seattle's nickel corner. He's our No. 7 free-agent corner.

Seahawks activated CB Walter Thurmond III from the reserve/suspended list.

KJR 950 Seattle's Dave Mahler hears that Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond III's four-game suspension is for marijuana.
He'll be eligible to return in Week 17. The Seahawks will likely turn to usual special teamer Byron Maxwell at right cornerback, with Jeremy Lane in the slot and Richard Sherman manning his usual left corner post. Consider Seattle a slightly more favorable matchup for opposing pass games. They still have elite safeties, Sherman, and a ferocious, deep group of pass rushers.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond will be suspended for games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Per RapSheet, Thurmond was not popped for performance-enhancing drugs like Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman last year. (They both used ADD medicine to enhance their in-game focus.) Thurmond has been Seattle's slot corner all year, and is starting with Browner shelved by a significant groin injury. Thurmond's loss is a major blow to a Seahawks defense that will now have to rely on its depth. They have Jeremy Lane and Byron Maxwell in reserve.

CB Walter Thurmond III was reportedly one of the Seahawks' most impressive players during spring workouts.
Thurmond has appeared in just eight games over the last two years due to a broken leg and subsequent complications. Now healthy, beat writer Danny O'Neil says Seahawks coaches were "scrambling for ways to get him involved." Thurmond has the inside track on the No. 4 corner job, forming an impressive quartet with Richard Sherman, Brandon Browner and Antoine Winfield.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll believes fourth-year CB Walter Thurmond III is finally over the injury hump.
A severely broken leg helped limit Thurmond to just eight combined games the past two seasons. "He has been in a situation where he's kind of had to hold back a little bit for a long time and he's really able to go for it now," Carroll said. "He's got extraordinary quickness. He's a playmaker and he's fighting to play a bunch, not just to be around here." Thurmond will open the season no higher than fourth on the depth chart, and possibly lower.

Seahawks CB Walter Thurmond III (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 17.
Thurmond hinted on his Twitter account that the injury could also keep him sidelined during the playoffs. "He's still feeling (discomfort) and that's not a good sign for this week obviously, and it's going to be hard for him to get back next week too I would think," said coach Pete Carroll. With Brandon Browner suspended for one more game, Jeremy Lane will again get the start opposite Richard Sherman in Sunday's finale.
