We hear nobody on the Seahawks is looking more forward to the 2010 campaign than former first-round draft pick CB Marcus Trufant, who couldn't be more determined to make amends for what he considered a lost season in '09. "That's a great way to put it," said one daily team observer of Trufant, who never was able to get his act together after spending the first six games in '09 on the physically-unable-to-perform list with a disc problem in his back similar to the one that previously sidelined QB Matt Hasselbeck. "In his first game back (after coming off the PUP list), he really struggled against (Cowboys WR) Miles Austin and admitted that it was really difficult for him from that point on.

"But he's feeling much better now and is relishing the team's decision to have the corners play a more aggressive bump-and-run style, which plays to his strengths. They are finally doing what they said they were going to do before but never did, choosing instead to always have the corners pull off receivers."

It's been clear so far this offseason that Trufant, who is entering the third year of a six-year, $50.2 million deal, has fully regained his signature makeup speed. "It really looks like he's back, both physically and mentally," the source said.
