Now that Walter Thurmond has been suspended for four games after violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy and Brandon Browner is out for 4-6 weeks with an injury, the Seahawks all of a sudden need some help in their secondary.
According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Seahawks have contacted free agent cornerback Antoine Winfield who was on their roster during the preseason and was released prior to the start of the regular season.
The Seahawks have contacted the three-time Pro Bowl selection, a source told FOX Sports. And while Winfield announced his retirement at the end of training camp with Seattle, it wasn’t truly a retirement. The 36-year-old Winfield has continued to work out and has heard from several teams recently but has turned down all offers. He’s looking for a chance to play in his first Super Bowl and the Seahawks could give him that opportunity.
