Thurmond was drafted in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft. In his four seasons with the Seahawks, he has had 85 tackles, a sacks, 15 pass deflections, an interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, and a touchdowns.
Thurmond is listed as the second best available free agent cornerback by Rotoworld, right behind Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie.
It will be interesting to see if the 49ers can lure away a top free agent from their biggest rival.
Thurmond responded with the following when questioned by Seahawks fans on Twitter.
People need to chill, I haven't made a decision. It's a visit. You know like college recruiting,same thing smh— walter thurmond III (@WaltThurm3) March 13, 2014
