In need of depth at cornerback after the suspension of Walter Thurmond, the Seahawks signed former 49er Perrish Cox on Tuesday as they began practicing for Monday night’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

The Seahawks search for needed depth at cornerback has led them to Perrish Cox, who was signed Tuesday.

The 6-foot, 198-pound Cox was with the NFC West-rival San Francisco 49ers this season, as well as last season. He entered the NFL in 2010 as a fifth-round draft choice out of Oklahoma State by the Denver Broncos. The 49ers released him Nov. 12 to clear a roster spot for linebacker Nick Moody.

Cox had two tackles in nine games this season, after registering 20 tackles last season. His only NFL interception came in 2010, when he started nine games for the Broncos.

Cox replaces cornerback Walter Thurmond, who has been suspended for four games by the NFL. Thurmond had been starting on the right side because Brandon Browner is out with a groin injury. So Byron Maxwell is expected to step into the starting lineup.

Cox also arrives as the Seahawks are preparing to face the New Orleans Saints in a “Monday Night Football” matchup at CenturyLink Field. The Saints’ feature the league’s No. 2-ranked passing offense, directed by Drew Brees, who ranks among the Top 5 in the NFL in passer rating (fourth at 107.3), completions (second with 300), completion percentage (third at .683), passing yards (second with 3,647) and touchdown passes (second with 28).
