Five thoughts on Lofa Tatupu's situation

By Mike Sando

Reflections upon learning that the Seattle Seahawks are likely to move on without three-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu, who refused to accept a reduction from his $4.3 million salary, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter:

It's still possible, at least in theory, that Tatupu could return to the team after considering his options elsewhere. I wouldn't bet on it at this point, however.

By the way, Leroy Hill and Trufant are the only players remaining with Seattle from the team's Super Bowl appearance following the 2005 season.

Note: I adjusted the figures on Cole's salary after previously stating his 2011 base salary as $4.4 million. That is the figure for 2012.
