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.

    Time for Washington to break out against his former team.

    A loss would be a set back forsure, so I think we will see a great effort by this young team.

    3 picks by our all pro secondary? It’s overdue, imo.

  8. montanamike2 says:

    Jason Jones coming back will help a lot.

  9. GeorgiaHawk says:

    montanamike2- Did you get your heat back, or are you still springing it?

  10. montanamike2 says:

    Yeah last week i got it back, just in time because it’s snowing now.

  11. montanamike2 says:

    I was so bummed out after the loss to Detroit i was numb. Now i can put back on my sunglasses.

  12. montanamike2 says:

    going to the place that shall not be named, see you later Georgia.

  14. Great to hear Thurmond is back, but I sure dont expect him to contribute all that much for awhile. He’s bound to be rusty as can be. But Tru’s days are numbered…and I hate to say it, cause Tru is a great guy and was a fine player for a lot of years, but I cant wait to have Thurmond playing nickel regularly.
