A team spokesman said a news conference scheduled for Wednesday afternoon was to announce Trufant's new deal.
The Seahawks had designated Trufant as their franchise player for this year and were mandated to offer him a one-year tender worth a guaranteed $9,465,000, the average of the top five salaries for cornerbacks in the league. Trufant had been free to negotiate with other teams in free agency that began March 1.
