Cox was released by the Seahawks on Tuesday, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.
Cox was one of eight Seahawks to get cut on Tuesday. The veteran signed with the team in mid-January, as he figured to compete for a reserve position behind starters Richard Sherman and Jeremy Lane. However, Cox's value was greatly depleted after the team drafted four different defensive backs two weeks ago. Back on the market, Cox figures to draw some interest from teams looking to bolster their secondary with a veteran presence.
Cox signed a contract with the Seahawks on Wednesday, NFL.com reports.
Although Cox started 22 games for the Titans over the last two seasons, very few teams have had any interest in him since his November release. Now in Seattle, he'll fight for a depth role in the secondary in advance of the 2017 campaign.
Cox was released by the Titans on Monday.
Cox started nine of 11 games played for Tennessee this season, recording three interceptions along the way. However, after struggling at times in coverage, the team opted to release him and promote rookie seventh-rounder Kalan Reed from the practice squad Monday.
Cox missed last week's game due to his concussion and was on the team's initial injury report this week but has since been removed. Barring any unforeseen setbacks he should be expected to return to action and start against San Diego on Sunday.
Cox practiced in full Wednesday, so there is little reason to believe that he will not be available for Week 9's matchup against the Chargers. Keep an eye on his status as the week rolls on.
