Former Seahawks cornerback Marcus Trufant is making the most out of retirement.
A year ago, Trufant jumped at the chance to fly with the Blue Angels, and on Wednesday, the former Pro Bowl corner jumped out of an airplane to promote the Seahawks’ new partnership with Talking Rain.
Trufant’s tandem skydive ended with him landing on a practice field at the VMAC just before the start of practice, earning a big cheer from the crowd awaiting the final day of training camp.
“It was just a great experience, man, the rush was out of this world,” Trufant said, still catching his breath. “And that’s what the Seahawks are going to get with this partnership. It’s a rush, it’s the bold side of water. It was off the chain. I loved it.”
In addition to jumping out of planes and flying in them, Trufant has spent part of his time in retirement co-hosting “The Barbershop." Trufant, a Tacoma native who starred at Washington State, played 10 seasons with the Seahawks and earned first-team All Pro and Pro Bowl honors in 2007. And now that his career is over, he’s doing things he couldn’t as a player.
“I figured after retirement—there were certain I couldn’t do as a player, and this was one of them, so check on the bucket list,” he said. “…The Blue Angels, this, and now what’s next? I guess time will only tell. I’m just getting started. I’m a couple years into retirement, and I’m just looking to have a blast.”Read
