Number 23 will be missed A Washington native, and alumni of Washington State University, Marcus Trufant was drafted by his hometown team Seattle Seahawks in the 1st round of the 2003 draft. There’s nothing more fulfilling as a sports fan than seeing one of the local products getting drafted and making an impact on the local pro sports team. And Marcus Trufant definitely made an impact with the Seahawks. Trufant had played his whole career with the Seahawks, a total of nine years, but all of that came to an end on Wednesday. The Seahawks cut the veteran CB after he missed much of last year with an injury. On Wednesday via Twitter Seahawks coach Pete Carroll had this to say: Marcus Trufant has been a great player in this organization for years, and we’re so grateful for his class & commitment to this community — Pete Carroll (@PeteCarroll) March 7, 2012 Pretty hefty words of encouragement for a player he just cut, but that is what Trufant meant to Seattle as a member of the Seahawks.
