According to, the belief in Seattle is that veteran cornerback Marcus Trufant will be a great fit as the Seahawks’ nickel-back this coming season.

“This is good for him, since he won’t have to turn and run downfield as much and can keep plays in front of him,” said one team source, per PFW.

Trufant is still a talented player even though he’s clearly past him prime.  Limiting his snaps as a nickel corner will help him be moreeffective when he’s in the game.
