Would the Seahawks pursue Winfield to replace Thurmond?

There are several reports/Tweets tonight that the Seahawks might be interested in pursuing Antione Winfield to replace Walter Thurmond during the four games that he will be suspended.

Among those is CBSSports.com NFL Insider Jason LaConfora:

Winfield was signed by Seattle in April to compete with Thurmond for the starting nickelback spot.

He was released in the cutdown to 53 in late August, after which he announced he was also retiring — he turned 36 in June.

As noted at the time, Winfield had a $1 million base salary, as well as a $500,000 singing bonus, and cutting him saved $1 million off the cap.

However, those numbers would not be applicable now.

While he had retired, Winfield was also reported to have said he might be interested in playing again if it were the right situation.

Winfield could give Seattle an experienced buffer not only during the time Thurmond would be out but also depending on what happens with Brandon Browner, who is out 4-6 weeks with a groin injury.

As noted in our earlier story, Seattle has one immediate option on its roster to fill in the depth at cornerback in DeShawn Shead, who has been on the practice squad all season.

UPDATE — Also, in case you missed it, Thurmond Tweeted this earlier about his suspension:
