The Seattle Seahawks cut former Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Trufant today. Trufant was due a $7.2 million base salary and carried a $10.13 million salary-cap figure for 2012. Out of respect for Marcus and his family, weve decided to release him today so that he has an opportunity to explore the full window of unrestricted free agency and the options that go along with it, Seahawks general manager John Schneider said. Marcus has done so much for this organization, but because of the changing landscape of the NFL, tough decisions have to be made and this is the correct thing to do at this time. Drafted 11th overall, Trufant was scheduled to make an $8.8 million base salary in 2013 with an $11.73 million salary-cap figure in the final year of his contract. A former Washington State standout, Trufant has struggled with back injuries and finished last season on injured reserve after playing four games. Source: Scout.com
