ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Falcons worked out free agent linebacker Lofa Tatupu on Friday morning.

Tatupu has been a middle linebacker throughout his NFL career, and Atlanta has a possible hole inside with Curtis Lofton on the brink of unrestricted free agency. Tatupu has been plagued by medical concerns, however, and did not play football last season. It’s hard to imagine that the Falcons would view him as a viable candidate to step right in and start.

Tatupu, 29, has also drawn interest from the Saints since the season ended. Reports linked him to the Bears and Raiders last summer, although Chicago and Oakland have experienced front office overhauls this year.
