Unlike Josh Brown, some football players actually like to win games. Lofa Tatupu signed a 6 year contract extension today, making him what seems to be a Seahawk for life. The 25 year old middle linebacker is the cornerstone of the Hawk defense, and hopefully produce the more of what we’ve seen the past three years. Since his rookie season he has led the team in tackles all three years and been to all three Pro Bowls.
The coolest thing I thought came out of all this, is how the team banded together to get this deal done. Patrick Kerney, Deon Grant, Jordan Babineaux and Craig Terrill all restructured their contracts so the extension would fit under the salary cap. It just shows how the Seattle Seahawks are committed to winning, and hopefully Seattle will be a winning city for years to come.
