RENTON, Wash. (AP) — The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with cornerback Marcus Trufant on a one-year deal.

Trufant's time in Seattle appeared over when he was released by the team with two years left on his contract on March 7. Trufant was scheduled to make $7.2 and $8.8 million in base salary the next two years. He missed significant time the last three seasons with injuries and had his productivity slip, leading to his release.

Trufant explored the market before deciding to return to the only franchise he's ever played for. In his nine seasons with Seattle, Trufant has 604 tackles (533 solo), 2 sacks and 21 interceptions to rank fifth in team history.
