Atlanta Falcons LBs Akeem Dent and Lofa Tatupu have been splitting reps with the first-team defense at middle linebacker during minicamp this week.
Huddle Up: Tatupu sat out a year after Seattle cut him in July 2011. The three-time Pro Bowler has a history of knee problems and concussions. Tatupu and Dent are competing to replace Curtis Lofton at MLB after he left for New Orleans; a loss that Falcons WR Roddy White bemoaned loudly on Twitter.
