Question Lofa Tatupu-Cinderella story or potential nightmare?

The Saints had their first free agent visit of the 2012 off-season earlier this week when the team met with middle linebacker Lofa Tatupu here in New Orleans. News that many Saints fans seemed to get excited about. Nothing has resulted from the visit as of yet, but since it's the only interesting thing to happen in Who Dat Nation in quite some time, I figured we might as well discuss it a little further. Is this Lofa Tatupu character a player the Saints want to take a chance on?

Coming out of USC in 2005 and drafted by Seattle, Tatupu's NFL career looked incredibly promising, starting with three straight Pro Bowl seasons. But he hasn't been the same since then, putting up just mediocre stats when not recovering from a torn pectoral or sitting out all of last season amid reports of a knee injury

"Coming out of USC" ..... That says enough for me. I'll say NO THANK YOU!

I would love to have him if he was the Tattoo of old but Spags will let us know soon enough.

I wonder how much Dunbar is asking for?

And if that price meets with the level of fit/want in regards to Spags?

I mean, they might be looking at creating depth at MLB in a future without Dunbar.
