2011 NFL Free Agents: Kelly Jennings Returns To Seahawks

The Kelly Jennings experiment will continue in Seattle. Peter King of Sports Illustrated reports that the cornerback decided to return to Seattle on a one-year deal. Jennings will again test the free agent market in 2012, where he will probably have more suitors now that a great deal of solid cornerbacks will be off the market.

Jennings had a solid season in 2010 opposite Marcus Trufant, and he could very well step back into that role with the relative youth surrounding the two-deep. Walter Thurmond, who has been practicing in Jennings's spot, is only in his second year out of Oregon, and is still relatively inexperienced to the NFL rigors. Jennings shores up a position of need for Seattle, and should hopefully keep their pass defense from totally crumbling (Football Outsiders only had them ranked at 29th last year though, so an even half-decent performance this season would be a big upgrade).
