The Seattle Seahawks are moving quickly to replace two of the stars of the Legion of Boom, after they were suspended for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. Or at least Walter Thurmond was suspended, Brandon Browner’s suspension is weird as he is denying the suspension after it was apparent he was appealing the suspension via Adam Schefter on twitter. That might get more crazy as the week moves along.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks have reportedly called up veteran retiree Antoine Winfield and old friend Marcus Trufant, who was with the team for 10 seasons before being released to free agency before 2013. He worked out with Jacksonville in the preseason but got cut in the final wave to the 53 man roster.
Winfield was cut in the same fashion from Seattle after excitement of his addition turned into concern on the payroll. Ironically, Walter Thurmond played so well that Winfield became expendable. The latest on both of those guys:
On the potential #Seahawks CB targets: Marcus Trufant worked out today, Perrish Cox a few weeks go. Antoine Winfield has not.

The Seahawks have expressed interest in Antoine Winfield, but no deal is in place. For now he remains retired. Process is ongoing

Perrish Cox is another corner that the Seahawks are reportedly interested in, as you can see. Cox was cut by San Francisco a few weeks back, so the Seahawks know him as well as any other corner in the league. He is also probably in better game shape than the other two. We’ll keep an eye on the ongoing search for replacements in Seattle.
