Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the Falcons have reached an agreement with free agent linebacker Lofa Tatupu, a player they worked out yesterday. Prior to joining the Falcons, Tatupu played six seasons with the Seattle Seahawks (2005-10) and made three Pro Bowls.
Tatupu missed all of the 2011 season due to lingering knee issues from double arthroscopic surgery on both knees from January 2011. But apparently is healthy and ready to go. Tatupu gives the Falcons a solid insurance policy at middle linebacker if the team is unsuccessful with re-signing Curtis Lofton, who will become a free agent on Tuesday.
