NFL suspended free agent OG Deuce Lutui for the first four games of the 2013 season.
It may be the result of testing positive for PEDs, but we're not certain. Lutui hasn't had any run-ins with the law recently. After being signed by the Titans in Week 2 last season, Deuce went on to start eight games at right guard. He was a major part of Tennessee's interior line problem. Poor play coupled with a suspension doesn't bode well for Lutui's free agency outlook. Wed, Mar 13, 2013 06:26:00 PM

Deuce Lutui will start in place of Leroy Harris (knee) at RG for the Titans in Week 9 against the Bears.

This will be the first action for the veteran guard since he signed with the Titans in September. Lutui played 93 games with 72 starts for the Cardinals from 2006-2011.

Titans signed OG Deuce Lutui to a one-year contract.

Lutui worked out for the Titans early last week, and they signed him after an abysmal Opening Day effort by the interior offensive line. Lutui, 29, has not started a game since the end of the 2010 season, but he could quickly move up the depth chart in Nashville. He's a legit candidate to start at right guard.

The Titans worked out free agent OG Deuce Lutui on Monday.

An earlier report indicated Lutui would likely be signed, although nothing has been finalized. He would add another option to a porous Titans interior line.

Seahawks OG Deuce Lutui is down to 338 pounds.

Weight problems plagued Lutui throughout his time as a Cardinal, often reporting to camp between 380 and 400 pounds. He now appears inspired after getting picked up by his former college coach, Pete Carroll. An in-shape Lutui would be quality depth for the Seahawks.

According to Seahawks coach Pete Carroll, OG Deuce Lutui's weight is "way down."

"He looks good," Carroll said. "His weight is down — I mean, way down from where he can be. He's a vegan, too, now, so he has really made a big turn." It appears Lutui has finally gotten serious about staying in shape after being benched by the Cardinals last season. Lutui provides Seattle with veteran insurance for rehabbing RG John Moffitt (torn MCL, PCL).

The Cardinals haven't "closed the door" on re-signing free agents OG Deuce Lutui and OT Brandon Keith.

Their return would have to come at the right price and likely not until after the draft. Pass-blocking liability Jeremy Bridges would start at right tackle if the season started today, though the Cardinals are expected to address the position in the draft.'s Darren Urban "never got the sense" that Arizona is interested in free agent Marcus McNeill.

The Seahawks tried out free agent OG Deuce Lutui on Monday.

Lutui is making the NFC West rounds, also recently working out for the 49ers. Teams want to see Lutui on the hoof because he's struggled with weight problems in his NFL career. He's been a powerful right guard when in shape.

The 49ers recently worked out free agent G Deuce Lutui.

The Cardinals' starting right guard since 2006, Lutui was stripped of his job last season after reporting to camp significantly overweight for the second straight year. He's drawn no other known interest on the open market. Lutui could compete with Daniel Kilgore in San Francisco. Still just 28, Lutui has the ability to be a starting NFL lineman, but may no longer have the drive.

Coach Ken Whisenhunt said at the Combine that the Cardinals would welcome back free agent OG Deuce Lutui only under the condition that he gets in shape.

"It’s up to Deuce," said Whisenhunt. "We’d like to have him back but one of the things we have to get worked out with Deuce is his weight. We had to struggle with him the last couple of years. The bottom line is that Deuce hasn’t played as well when he has been heavy." Lutui, 29 in May, lost his starting job last season and appeared only on special teams. We suspect he won't return.

Free agent G Deuce Lutui is unlikely to re-sign with the Cardinals.

Playing on a one-year deal, Lutui was a total bust last season, seeing just 45 snaps in 15 games. Though long on talent, Lutui will draw scant interest until he proves he's committed to getting and staying in shape.

Deuce Lutui is strictly a backup right guard.

When right guard Daryn Colledge went down Sunday, he was replaced by D'Anthony Batiste. Lutui isn't even versatile enough to change sides.
Mon, Oct 10, 2011 10:08:00 AM

Cardinals agreed to terms with RG Deuce Lutui on a one-year contract.

Lutui's two-year agreement with Cincinnati was declared null and void after he flunked his physical for showing up at a whopping 381 pounds. It's hardly a surprise for a player who was dubbed "Double Deuce" after arriving to camp weighing 400 a year ago. The Cardinals are now flush with guards after signing Daryn Colledge and Pork Chop Womack, though Lutui will presumably regain his starting job once he gets in shape. Arizona still desperately needs a starting-caliber left tackle to keep Kevin Kolb upright.

Bengals signed G Deuce Lutui, formerly of the Cardinals, to a two-year contract.

Finally, something goes right for the Bengals this week. By adding Lutui, they get a 6'4/338 power guard that was the best offensive lineman on the Cardinals last year. It's excellent news for both Cedric Benson and whoever wins the Bruce Gradkowski vs. Andy Dalton showdown.

The Arizona Republic confirms the Cardinals still want to keep free agent RG Deuce Lutui after signing Daryn Colledge.

Journeyman Rex Hadnot is around for insurance, but the Cardinals should be aiming higher up front. Signing an impact tackle would go a long toward keeping Kevin Kolb upright as well.
