RENTON – Marcus Trufant will retire a Seahawk.
On Wednesday, the Seahawks announced the former Seahawks cornerback had signed with the team with the intention of announcing his retirement Thursday.
Trufant has scheduled a news conference at the VMAC in Renton Thursday at 11 a.m. where he will address the media and fans.
A first-round draft choice by his hometown NFL team in 2003, Trufant started 125 games in 10 seasons with the Seahawks.
He was not re-signed after becoming an unrestricted free agent last March. He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in May, but was released before playing in a regular-season game.
