NFL analyst Jason LaCanfora is reporting that a former linebacker for the Seattle Seahawks has paid a visit to the New Orleans Saints on Monday.

Linebacker Lofa Tatupu was reportedly in New Orleans to pay a visit to the Saints possibly for a scheduled workout.  Tatupu did not play last season after being released in July of 2011 due to a contract disagreement.

Tatupu was a second round selection for the Seahawks in 2005 out of the University of Southern California and was a solid player during his time there.  From 2005-2011, he registered 543 tackles, 8.5 sacks, and 10 interceptions.

The Saints had signed Tatupu’s old teammate linebacker Will Herring last season and the experiment didn’t quite work out.  Herring started out strong but was hampered by injuries and placed on injured reserve.
