Well, this should pretty much ensure Tatupu's status as a beloved sports figure in the Northwest. Not only does this deal guarantee that he'll spend at least the bulk of his career making plays in front of a rabid Seattle crowd, but as the article points out, he probably left money on the table so the team would have a better chance of signing Leroy Hill and Marcus Trufant to long-term deals.

The Bucs' rookie made a lot of big plays last year, but he'll need to cut down on turnovers and sloppy throws to live up to his draft status.
