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.
