Seattle, MLB Lofa Tatupu 'mutually' part ways

Posted: Updated:

RENTON, Wash. (AP) _ The Seattle Seahawks and starting middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu have "mutually parted ways" after the Seahawks defensive captain reportedly declined to restructure his contract. A team spokesman confirmed the decision Sunday morning. The Seahawks were practicing Sunday afternoon. Tatupu noticeably was just a spectator during the first few days of training camp. Tatupu played for head coach Pete Carroll at USC, was a second-round pick in the 2005 draft and helped lead Seattle to its only Super Bowl appearance in his first season. He has struggled with injuries the past few years, including a torn pectoral muscle that cost him most of the 2009 season. He had surgery on both knees following last season. Tatupu was scheduled to make $4.35 million in base salary in 2011.
