Marcus Trufant hasn't played a full season since the 2010 campaign, and the veteran is 32 years old.
So, it would not be surprising to see the Seattle Seahawks part ways with Trufant.
And in a breakdown of the team by Eric Williams of the Tacoma News Tribune earlier in February:
The Seahawks could be ready to move on from 10-year veteran Trufant, which means they will be looking for a nickel cornerback in free agency or the draft.
Last season Trufant made 34 tackles and defended just two passes in a limited role. Not to mention he played in only 14 games including the postseason. But numbers don't reveal the impact of Trufant's contributions last season.
Seattle allowed a mere 58 completion percentage and 15 passing touchdowns to 18 picks. Even though pro football is a passing league, we see plenty of offenses attack defenses underneath the safeties and on the outside.
Given Trufant's role, him blanketing the intermediate level forced quarterbacks to survey elsewhere. As a result, the Seahawks were among the best defenses in 2012.
Prediction: Cleveland Browns
It may not appear like a great fit at first glance, but Trufant really bolsters Cleveland's secondary. He would be an excellent complement opposite of Joe Haden and a better option than Sheldon Brown.
Additionally, should the Browns select a top cornerback in the draft, Trufant can retain his role as a nickel/dime back. Cleveland simply needs to enhance its coverage, not to mention Trufant's presence will allow the pass rush a bit more time to apply pressure.
