<Adam Schefter is reporting via twitter, that former Seahawks LB Lofa Tatupu is visiting the Oakland Raiders today. With a need for a WLB, it makes sense for them to at least kick the tires and do their due diligence with trying to fill another need. If the Gaither situation has showed us anything, nothing is immenent. So this could very well be nothing. But I havent seen this posted anywhere yet, and thought I would do so here.>
Saint's Take: This would be an absolute coup! If I could select any linebacker to join the Oakland Raiders, Lofa Tatupu would be on my very short list. Totupu makes plays in the passing and running games and he is one of those players who has a nose for the football whose leadership or commitment to his team have never been questioned.
He is coming off of surgery on both knees and has played through six very tough seasons in the NFL, but, even if he has lost a half a step, he is a gap disciplined hole plugger who would be a welcome addition to Oakland.
