Middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu, released by the Seahawks on Sunday, will visit the Raiders on Monday, according to a league source.
The Seahawks cut the six-year veteran after he reportedly declined to restructure his contract. He leaves after anchoring the middle of Seattle’s defense for most of six seasons, including three Pro Bowl appearances.
Tatupu, 28, has battled injuries the past few seasons and seen a decline in production. He missed most of 2009 after tearing a pectoral muscle. Last season, he played in all 16 games, but his 88 tackles were the lowest of his career in a full season, and he needed surgery on both knees during the offseason.
