RENTON, Wash. -- The Seattle Seahawks have signed veteran cornerback Travis Fisher.

The team announced the addition of Fisher on Sunday.

A second-round draft choice by St. Louis in 2002, Fisher played the last two seasons with the Detroit Lions.

Seattle cornerback Marcus Trufant remains out indefinitely with what coach Jim Mora has called a minor back injury.

Fisher has started 74 of 86 career games. He has 329 tackles, nine interceptions, two touchdowns and 39 passes defended.
