Seahawks release Perrish Cox a day after signing him

In a surprising move, the Seahawks waived Perrish Cox Wednesday, just a day after signing the former 49ers cornerback. The Seahawks used that open roster spot to promote DeShawn Shead off the practice squad, a move Pete Carroll said was coming. Carroll addressed the media before this transaction was made, however, and when asked about getting Shead onto the 53-man roster, he said they couldn’t announce the move yet, so we won’t get an explanation on Cox’s release from the coach today.

That the Seahawks made this move points to one of two things: either the Seahawks are bringing somebody else in later this week (Antoine Winfield, perhaps?) or that they actually think Brandon Browner has a chance to win his appeal. If the only goal was to get Shead on the roster, the Seahawks could wait as late as Sunday since he is already on the practice squad, and it was presumed that he would eventually just take Browner’s spot. So it would appear that either the Seahawks haven’t given up the possibility of Browner playing again this season, or they’ve got somebody coming in this week.

Cox offered this up on Twitter after the move was made:
