As expected, the Seattle Seahawks activated cornerback Walter Thurmond from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list to the active roster this afternoon.
Seattle cleared a roster spot for Thurmond by releasing receiver Charly Martin, and later adding him to the practice squad once he cleared waivers.
A fourth-round selection by Seattle in the 2010 draft, Thurmond is returning from a severe broken leg that cut short his 2011 season. He’s been practicing with the team since Oct. 21, and has been working as a nickel cornerback with Seattle’s starting defense in practice.
According to the new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the Seahawks had until 21 days after Thurmond’s first practice to activate him from the PUP list, which would have been this Monday.
