CB Marcus Trufant, who was placed on the PUP list before the regular season is expected back in five weeks. Recently signed CB Travis Fisher is nursing a strained hamstring and is questionable for the Seahawks week two game in San Francisco.
As of now the Seahawks are going with three main corner backs. Ken Lucas, Kelly Jennings and Josh Wilson.
This passed Sunday they fared well against a week St Louis Rams offense but were exposed by wide receiver Laurent Robinson.
This week they don't have to worry to much in San Francisco with the 49ers offense either. They will focus more on running back Frank Gore.
But as the season goes on the Seahawks will need to be more bulked up in the secondary that is looking to improve from last season.
The Seahawks have already signed backup safety Lawyer Milloy after releasing Brian Russell and making Jordan Babineaux the starting free safety.
So how do the Seahawks plan to address their need at corner back? Well there are a few ways they can go about this.
One, the have already brought in free agent corner back Eric Green for a workout today and at this point in his career is what the Seahawks need and that's a nickle backup.
Two, they could could go after great veteran corner back and former Patriot and Jet Ty Law who is currently leaning towards returning to the NFL and I would imagine as a backup.
Seattle would be a great destination for Law for two reason. He would be a great backup and at this point in his career that's what he wants to be.
Two is that the Seahawks are a winning team and are the favorites by many to win the NFC West again and that would certainly appeal to Ty Law.
The only other option, which doesn't seem to be a huge possibility is trading for a corner back but with no real talented CB's on the market there is no reason to pursue a trade.
It will be down to Ty Law vs Eric Green because I don't see the Seahawks having to sign to CB's and release two players probably at WR and DL.
We'll have to wait and see what transpires.
