RENTON –  Marcus Trufant will retire a Seahawk.

On Wednesday, the Seahawks announced the former Seahawks cornerback had signed with the team with the intention of announcing his retirement Thursday.

Trufant has scheduled a news conference at the VMAC in Renton Thursday at 11 a.m. where he will address the media and fans.

A first-round draft choice by his hometown NFL team in 2003, Trufant started 125 games in 10 seasons with the Seahawks.

He was not re-signed after becoming an unrestricted free agent last March. He signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars in May, but was released before playing in a regular-season game.

    As a Seahawks fan I'd like to thank Marcus for all he did for that team. It was tough watching him get older and watch injuries take their toll, but that's football life. No shame in retiring when you still have a functioning brain and can enjoy life. Thanks again #23
