The Seahawks did not get rid of Lofa Tatupu because they thought he could no longer play.
They got rid of him because he no longer fit in their defense. Many believe Tatupu, at 6-0, 250, can only play middle linebacker in a 4-3 scheme. The Seahawks want to be more versatile with their front this year, and plan on morphing in and out of a three man front. Tatupu isn’t the guy to do that with.
Let’s hope Aaron the BUST Curry can play better than he has for the last 2 seasons without the leadership of Tatupu there is no one to blame if Curry flops again in his 3rd season!
