Raiders Chatting Today with Former Seahawks LB Lofa Tatupu

Former Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu is visiting the Raiders on Monday, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter. Tatupu met with coach Pete Carroll on Saturday night and asked for his release after the Seahawks asked him to take a pay cut, ESPN sources have said.

Tatupu was then cut by Seattle on Sunday morning. It was announced as a “mutual decision,” a line that was regularly repeated by Carroll after practice on Sunday afternoon. Tatupu anchored the middle of Seattle’s defense for most of six seasons, including three Pro Bowl appearances, and had a major hand in taking the Seahawks to their only Super Bowl appearance during his rookie 2005 season.

    I know it’s a job, and money is money, and it’s easier for me to say because I have no money, and a little bit would be better than nothing, but what about the Love of the game and fans, What the hell is the difference between 25 million and 35 million besides 10 million, you’re not going to spend it all anyway, Play some F’n ball, I’m sure there’s someone out there as good as you that will play for a lot less until it’s time for money to be their only objective also. Hell you can’t spend all your money in a lifetime anyway. GOD BLESS!
