Former Seattle Seahawks and Pro Bowl cornerback Marcus Trufant is scheduled to make a free agent visit to the Denver Broncos this Friday, Adam Schefter reports.

Trufant, 31, spent all eight of his professional seasons with the Seahawks, earning Pro Bowl and All-Pro honors in 2007. He finished the 2011 season on Injured Reserve and was released by the club last week.

The 5-11, 197-pounder has had five interceptions since 2007, one returned for a touchdown.

Meanwhile, another defensive back the Broncos brought to town has signed with another team — Brandon Meriweather is a Washington Redskin, The Washington Post reports.

Not in love with this Trufant move, but it’s worth kicking the tires. The Broncos need corner depth; I was just hoping for someone a bit younger. We’ll see how this plays out.

    My thoughts exactly Monty.
    We already have aging CBs, so I would like a young CB.
    Although Trufant is younger than Champ and Goodman, he isn’t exactly a spring chicken anymore. He’s 5 years removed from Pro-Bowl level play, which give me even more pause to bringing him in. It isn’t like he’s 26 years old. His best days are behind him, so that 2007 pro-bowl level of play isn’t exactly going to come back. As he gets older, his level of play is only gonna regress even more, which means I don’t hold my breath for him to play any better than Goodman.

    Might be worth it at the minimum if for no other reason than to mentor our young DB’s.  Still not sure I could see him making the active roster though.

    Vic Lombardi says Mike Adams may sign today, too.

    Mike Klis brought up a very interesting point on Twitter. Trufant’s agent is listed as Mike Sullivan — the guy the Broncos hired as their capologist. He couldn’t possibly still be his agent, could he?

    No way.  That would be a ridiculous conflict of interest for Sullivan.

    Meh.  He’s a step up from goodman, I guess.

    My guess is Klis has innacurate outdated information…just my guess though…

    Same here…meh. At this point though I’ll take an upgrade to Goody.

    I can’t imagine that Sullivan (or Trufant for that matter) is that stupid.

     I agree if the price is right
