Brooks Signed by Raiders (Seriously)
 
http://www.nfl.com/nflnetwork/story/9329201

Wanted to get this on the boards so people can argue the pros/cons. Personally I hope he does well.

Hahaha! I'm just glad he's not a Saint anymore. Let them suffer the agony I've had for the last couple of years.

Here's ESPN's article. It's a bit longer and adds their take on the deal. 8 million for two years. That pretty good money for him, I honestly didn't think he'd get anything near that amount.

I'm just glad he's gone, and he won't have to be the topic of any more discussion on this forum. I wish him well as a person, but if we ever face him in a game, I hope we wipe that stupid smile off his face.

Yea I Hope AB does well!!! He is now A Raider
 
:shock: Well It didn't take long for someone to realize that Brooks was still unsigned :roll: the guy has a riffle for an arm but we didn't have the dept threat to go with that arm of his save Joe Horn :biggun:

The Raiders will find out soon enough that Brooks is no better than Collins, and that's not saying much.
Brooks will have Moss and we all know how Moss gets upset when he can't get the ball.
Brooks in Oakland with their fans will be spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R, Disaster.

I will walk carefully here...on another board I got banned because I liked A. Brooks. I never understood why so many people in N.O. hated the guy. He gave us our most shinning moments ever. More than Archie, Bobby, or any other qb we've ever had. He will now be throwing to one of the best if not the best WR in the game. He will have a monster season for sure...he will be a fantasy players dream this year...some of those balls that Donte dropped will turn into five yard passes that go for 90 yards. Unlike most who will read or post here, I thought the Saints should have kept him. Imagine what you could have done with that $60 million they spent on an injured Brees who may not be able to throw a deep out this year. They better hope and pray Brees recovers. I'll still be pulling for my Saints but I'll definitely be pulling for the Raiders too...I hope AB makes everyone in N.O. regret we let him go...Congrats AB.

I'm not going to hate, I hope he does well with the Raiders. However, Deuce said it best, now since this guy has signed with the Raiders we can move on and he won't be a topic of discussion anymore. :drink:
