Seahawks sign CB Cox

Kirkland,  WA (SportsNetwork.com)  –  The Seattle  Seahawks signed  cornerback Perrish Cox on Tuesday.

Cox,  who was  released by  San  Francisco earlier  this month,  was added  to provide  secondary depth after Seattle learned that cornerback Brandon Browner is  facing  a one-year  suspension for  violating the league’s substance-abuse policy.  Fellow  cornerback Walter Thurmond  will also be sidelined four games for a similar violation of the substance-abuse policy.

The  26-year old Cox has appeared in 40 games in three seasons for the Broncos and  Niners. He has  80 tackles, two fumbles forced and an interception to his credit.
