Veteran LB Lofa Tatupu will be released by the Seahawks, according to a league source.
As we first reported on air Saturday, Tatupu met with team officials to discuss reworking the seven-year, $42.52 million contract that he signed in 2008, but he wasn’t compelled to agree to any changes, leading to his eventual release. That decision was made Sunday in what team sources are calling “a mutual parting.”
Tatupu, who made the Pro Bowl in each of his first three seasons, has been slowed by injuries in recent years. However, the seventh-year veteran is a fan favorite in Seattle.
