Broncos working out Lofa Tatupu today after long layoff

The Broncos are obviously in the market for decorated veteran linebacker help, given their pursuit of D’Qwell Jackson.

But they’re even willing to look at guys who haven’t played in three seasons.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Broncos are working out former Seahawks linebacker Lofa Tatupu today.

Tatupu hasn’t played since 2010, though when he made a brief appearance in Falcons camp in 2012, he insisted missing the previous season wasn’t injury related.

Either way, he had a long string of concussions and knee problems in his Seahawks days, and his stay with the Falcons was cut short because of a torn pectoral muscle.

He’s 31, so there’s older guys doing it. And Green Bay defensive tackle Johnny Jolly came back after a three-year absence and played well enough, so there’s some reason for hope.

    That hit on nick goings in the ’05 NFC title game was brutal. Both players looked like they got knocked out. Anyways, good luck uso, hope you make the squad.

    As good as there was in the league till injuries got the better of him. I hope he’s fit and find’s a home in Denver. They could use a little Seattle magic …

    This dude was a stud in his early 20s. The only guy that was better than him was P-Willis.

    Wish him the best.

    31 year old who hasn’t played in a game since 2010? Why wouldn’t you just keep Woodyard? This better not go any further..

    He was better than Willis when he was healthy.

    Best wishes; Hope he is healthy. If he is; he will do well and make the team. Great Player/Person. Glad to see he still has the fire/desire to play.

    THe guy is a baller when he’s healthy. I miss seeing him in a hawks uni. Hope he gets the chance to play again. He’s worth the risk/investment.
