Trufant remains with Seahawks

Tue., April 10, 2012

Football: The Seattle Seahawks have agreed to terms with former Washington State cornerback Marcus Trufant on a one-year deal at undisclosed terms.

Trufant’s time in Seattle appeared over when he was released by the team with two years left on his contract on March 7. Trufant was scheduled to make $7.2 and $8.8 million in base salary the next two years. He missed significant time the last three seasons with injuries and his productivity slipped, leading to his release.

Coug freshman cited for DUI

Football: Washington State freshman offensive lineman Denzell Dotson was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Sunday in Pullman.

A WSU spokesman said coach Mike Leach is aware of the arrest and will take appropriate action. The Cougars continue spring practice at 3:10 p.m. today.

Sgt. Dan Hargraves said Dotson was pulled over by Pullman police after he was seen driving the wrong way on Northeast Thatuna Street, a short one-way that heads northbound toward Colorado Street just west of Lower Soccer Field.

Dotson, 18, was administered a field sobriety test and blew into a portable BAC analyzer before he was arrested at about 1:18 a.m. Sunday, Hargraves said. Upon returning to the station, Dotson blew into a BAC machine and registered a blood-alcohol level in the .088 to .09 range. The legal limit for minors in Washington is .02.

Dotson was cited and released, Hargraves said. He was not booked.

“Usually for DUIs, we just hold people here and let them sober up,” Hargraves said.

Dotson graduated from Cactus High School in Peoria, Ariz., in December and was one of four players from Leach’s first signing class to enroll at WSU in January. He is one of three true freshman scholarship players to participate in spring practices, and the only one who graduated from high school this school year.
