Seattle will sign former 49ers CB Perrish Cox if he passes his physical today and team also is considering placing CB Brandon Browner IR.

What was originally the deepest position on the roster at one point now requires immediate attention before the Seahawks take on the current #2 NFC seed New Orléans Saints at CenturyLink on Monday Night Football.
Not only was Thurmond suspended for four games, but Brandon Browner has been sidelined because of a groin injury that is expected to keep him out until the middle of December, at the earliest. Well, it turns out that the sore groin is the least of Browners issues at the moment. For the second year in a row now, Browner has been accused of violating NFL rules and is facing a ban of one year for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. Todd has more in-depth news on that here.
On the heels of the news breaking, the Seahawks were in contact with multiple cornerbacks. Along with Cox, Seahawks GM John Schneider also contacted former players Marcus Trufant and Antoine Winfield, whom the Hawks released during the mandatory cutdown to 53 players prior to the regular season starting.
Don’t expect the Cox signing to be the only addition to the team over the next few days. Adding Winfield to replace Thurmond makes too much sense, unless of course giving up on the retired lifestyle is too difficult for Winfield who may choose to pass on a Super Bowl run with the Seahawks.
