Whats the deal with him? Is he hurt or what? He had a solid year last year, I don't know why noone has signed him? I would love to add him to our roster.

I read where he was invited to work out for the saints. Don't know if he did or not. Sorry, don't remember where I saw it. Maybe PFT-I know, shoot me.

He hasn't signed with NO, just worked out.

4-3 weakside linebacker. I bet he lands in Atlanta.

Exactly. Not a great match for a 3-4 D. Plus his major asset of speed has been diminished due to age.

Derrick Brooks is a cover 2 system LB...

he would not fit here at all...

he is undersized but made up for it with speed, but he's old and is no longer fast...

he's a small, aging, two down, cover 2 LB, that doesn't play special teams...

he has no place here and maybe not anywhere at this point of his career...

i do hope he lands with a team though...he's a class act...

Yeah, I think it's the end of the line for him. It really is a shame the way the Bucs treated him and some of the other vets they cut loose.

Atlanta would be the perfect fit.

On NFL total access they say the raiders have interest
