The Seahawks story in today’s Herald (and everywhere else), is that the Seahawks are looking at another suspension in their secondary with Brandon Browner facing a 1-year ban. In addition to discussing the suspensions in that story, we also take a look at options to bolster the now-depleted secondary, one of which is former 49er Perrish Cox, who worked out for the Seahawks earlier this month. And it sounds like the Cox signing is close to happening, with ESPN reporting Cox will be a Seahawk if he passes a physical.
Seattle will sign former 49ers CB Perrish Cox if he passes his physical today and team also is considering placing CB Brandon Browner IR.
