(November 26, 2013) The Seattle Seahawks have announced signing cornerback Perrish Cox to the 53-man roster.
The Seahawks signing Cox to replace cornerback Walter Thurmond, who has been suspended four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
The University High product was released by the 49ers earlier this month. In nine games this season, Cox tallied two tackles and recovered one fumble as a third-string backup for starting corners Carlos Rogers and Tarell Brown.
A fifth-round pick out of Oklahoma State in the 2010 NFL Draft, Cox debuted as a rookie starter for the Denver Broncos in 2010, when he had 56 total tackles, defended 14 passes, forced two fumbles and snagged one interception.
He missed the 2011 NFL season after being charged with sexual assault; he faced a possible life sentence, but was found not guilty in March 2012 in a Colorado court.
