Linebacker Lofa Tatupu was scheduled to make more than $4 million last season before the Seattle Seahawks released him during the summer.

The 29-year-old three-time Pro Bowler had started 16 games for the Seahawks the season before, but a source close to Tatupu tells National Football Post that his absence was due to a knee injury. "It was just injury-related," the source said, according to the site. "He wasn't 100 percent and didn't feel he was ready to go."

Now he's ready to make his return and some teams have already expressed interest, the site reports, but it doesn't look like it'll be with the Seahawks.
