    Ok, I am intrigued. 3 time pro bowler, one time All Pro, and only 28. I know we have 3 ILB's, but this would be a youth movement.

    After Seahawks asked LB Lofa Tatupu to take a paycut, he asked them to release him. The team now plans to do so, albeit reluctantly.

    I think the Eagles have already called him.

    The Eagles just might. They seem to be loading up this year. More so than before. Maybe they will finally be over the cap for once.

    I don’t think he fits a 3-4 scheme, but i have always liked this player. He is one of those ”run with his hair on fire” type guys that would bring some excitement to the defense. I would look into it.

    I doubt we would go after him but he would be a solid addition in the middle. I hear he is a solid person too. I would hate to see this kid in Philly!

    Seriously, though... He does fit their scheme (not ours).

    Not gonna lie this offseason is bumming me out. I am hating seeing these eagles make moves and if they pick up lofa this is gonna suck even more.

    Sign him before the Eagles do for payback from the Nnamdi debacle.

    If the eagles sign him this offseason is going to be too much. I will pretty much concede the nfc east title and just pray we can get a wild card and then have someone else knock off the eagles in the playoffs.

    It's killing me. They are handing our to us and the rest of the NFL. Everyone is predicting them as the Super Bowl team and it's hard not to. They are going to be really good.

    As for us, I guess we can get excited over Elam. We look so 8-8 right now.

    Washington has won how many pre season SBs doing the same as the Birds are now?

    They still have a lot of holes. They released a number of starters so they are just filling those positions. OUtside of Nmadi, not certain that they have REALLY strengthened themselves anywhere.

    He would be nice addition. Flame away, but why does he not fit. If I remember Ryans D is not a true 3-4 it is a hybrid 3-4 more like a 46 or am I wrong.

    Personally, I would sign him and send Brooking packing.

    Stephen Tulloch interested me (maybe I'm crazy) but he just went to Detroit 1yr for $3.75 million.

    Detroit might be tough to run on.

    And doesn't he have packages where he has like 5-6 linebackers on the field?

    You may be onto something here :D

    Naw, he's a much better fit in a 4-3. Doubt he'll want to learn a new system, especially with the shortened season.
