    Travis Fisher signs one-year deal with Seattle

    Seahawks add veteran CB Fisher

    RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks signed veteran cornerback Travis Fisher on Sunday, with injured star Marcus Trufant out indefinitely with a sore back.

    Fisher said he was home in Tallahassee, Fla., working out for what he thought was an imminent chance in the league after the Detroit Lions released him May 1. The Seahawks called him this weekend. He tried out at team headquarters Sunday morning and was signed in time to practice in the afternoon.

    A second-round draft choice by St. Louis in 2002, Fisher played the last two seasons with the Lions. He said he's glad to get back to a "rosy smell" of a winning organization after enduring the NFL's first 0-16 season last year in Detroit. He has started 74 of 86 career games.

    He played only a few downs during team scrimmaging on his first day with Seattle.

    "This is my first day of camp. I'm a veteran, I know all about what it takes to be ready for the season," he said.

    Seattle coach Jim Mora said Friday when camp opened that Trufant was placed on the physically-unable-to-perform list for a minor back injury sustained recently. Josh Wilson, a second-round draft choice in 2007 and normally the nickel back, is currently the first-team cornerback opposite recently acquired veteran Ken Lucas.

    The Seahawks know all about managing backs. Quarterback Matt Hasselbeck missed nine games in 2008 with a bulging disk in his lower back, and center Chris Spencer has also had back pain.

    "He wasn't going to be able to practice," Mora said of Trufant, a Pro Bowl selection two seasons ago. "We want to be cautious with backs, given our history. ... It doesn't appear to be anything serious, just sore."

    He wasn't bad when he was with us from what I can remember. I guess we'll find out though.

    I wonder if he will even make it past the 1st cuts though. Sounds to me like they just needed a training camp body, and to make the team he's gonna have to really stand out.

    Fisher made the squad, probably because Tru is out 6 weeks on the PUP. My guess is Tru will take his roster spot when he returns.

    Fisher drove me nuts playing so far off his receivers. I am glad he is with Seattle. Maybe I can watch him play for another team and feel happy.

    Hopefully he'll return the favor and give up some big plays to us on Sunday!

    The guy is worthless in coverage. He couldn't break up a pass to save his life. May have to rethink my mock gambling bet. Our chances of winning just doubled! That's what I remember about his tenure in the horns. It wasn't pretty.

    Go Rams!!!
