Cox signed for 2011

The Seahawks have secured the services of another versatile role player by signing cornerback and special teams player Kennard Cox for the 2011 season.

Cox made the original 53-man roster last season, only to be released and signed to the practice squad in September. But he was added to the active roster in mid-October. Cox played in 11 games and his highlight play was blocking a punt in the Week 12 game against the Kansas City Chiefs that rookie Earl Thomas returned for a touchdown.

The punt block was the first by a Seahawk since D.D. Lewis got one in 2003, and Thomas’ scoring return was the first off a blocked punt since Alex Bannister in 2001.

Cox (6-foot, 191) also had seven tackles and broke up two passes while playing in situational roles on defense.
