The Seahawks are looking to fill a hole in their cornerback unit. Walter Thurmond was suspended for four games on Sunday for violating the league's substance abuse problem. The most likely replacement for Thurmond could be former Seahawks defensive back Antoine Winfield, according to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports. The possibility of Winfield signing was increased after Seattle recently reached out to the veteran, per Garafolo.
Winfield participated in training camp and the preseason with the Seahawks after spending years with the Vikings. A three-time Pro Bowl and one-time All-Pro selection, Winfield is older but talented. In 14 years, Winfield collected 27 interceptions and 14 forced fumbles. Adding the 36-year-old to the lineup would likely be for depth in the nickel coverage unit.
