Former Seattle Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu sat out the entire season due to a knee injury, according to Jeff Fendotin of the National Football Post.

“It was just injury-related,” said Fendotin’s source. “He wasn’t 100 percent and didn’t feel he was ready to go.”

Tatupu plans on making a comeback in 2012 after rehabbing his knee and spending some quality time with is family.

The 29 year-old Tatupu will have to prove that he’s still a viable NFL player after being released by the Seahawks because of his declining skills due to age and injuries.

THE Recap: Seattle Seahawks at the 2012 Pro Bowl

They were everywhere If you didn’t watch the Pro Bowl like many people I know, I don’t blame you one bit. The game has turned into a softer version of the NBA All-Star game which is really an atrocity of an All-Star game. The lineman didn’t rush, but instead played patty cake. The defense played 2 hand touch, at best, and let offensive players walk into the endzone. This year...
