Seahawks CB Marcus Trufant has retired from the NFL after 11 seasons.
Trufant, 33, will sign a one-day contract with Seattle on Thursday so he can retire as a member of the team. The former No. 11 overall pick out of Washington State spent his entire career with the Seahawks before inking a one-year deal with the Jaguars last offseason and getting released at final cuts. He spent the 2013 season on the street. Trufant started 125 games in his career, making 644 tackles, deflecting 102 passes and picking off 21 others.
The Seahawks are leaning toward declining LG James Carpenter's club option for 2015.

Carpenter was the 25th pick in the 2011 draft and has missed 16 career games due to injuries. He did start the NFC Championship game and Super Bowl at left guard last season and appeared in all 19 games but was a liability both as a run blocker and pass protector. Carpenter's roster spot could even be in jeopardy.
Bucs TE Luke Stocker is not participating in voluntary workouts this week due to an undisclosed ailment.

Stocker went on injured reserver with a hip injury in late September, but it's unclear if the two situations are related. "That's hurting guys like him," said coach Lovie Smith about Stocker not taking part this week. The fourth-year tight end has just one year left on his rookie deal and won't be handed anything.
