Default Derrick Brooks?

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.
