Although Neiko Thorpe trekked to Buffalo for a Bills free agency visit this week, he will opt to stay with the Seahawks.
The veteran special-teamer agreed to terms to stay in Seattle on Saturday, Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times tweets. This will mark the defensive back’s fourth season with the Seahawks.
A former Raiders contributor on defense, Thorpe has been a key presence on the Seahawks’ specialty units since joining the team in 2016. He was a Seahawks special teams captain in 2018.
There are now seven cornerbacks on the Seahawks’ roster. At 29, Thorpe is the oldest. He has made 19 tackles during his three seasons as a Seahawk, recovering a fumble in each campaign. This figures to be purely a special teams-related signing; Thorpe played 30 defensive snaps last season.
