Free agent linebacker Lofa Tatupu worked out for the Atlanta Falcons on Friday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.
Reluctantly released by the Seattle Seahawks last August after declining to restructure his contract, the three-time Pro Bowl middle linebacker drew interest from the Washington Redskins and Oakland Raiders, but spent the season out of football. Tatupu visited the New Orleans Saints in February.
Tatupu missed 11 games in 2009 with hamstring and pectoral injuries and underwent surgery on both knees following the 2010 season. In 84 career games, Tatupu has 549 tackles, 8.5 quarterback sacks with 10 interceptions, two he's returned for touchdowns, 35 passes defensed and seven forced fumbles.
Falcons middle linebacker Curtis Lofton has led the team in tackles in each of the last three seasons, but is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent next Tuesday.
