this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; If he wasn't good enough when we brought him, what makes him good enough now? I say take our chances...

Re: Derrick Brooks??

I heard an interview with Brooks on Sirius a few weeks ago. Sounded like the reason he's not here is a $ issue. He's probably commanding more than Mickey is willing to pay at this point.

Its all about the money, and he wants to get paid.

I think I remember hearing the same thing.
I wouldn't mind having him on the team, but he probably wants to be paid based on performance history, without enough consideration on his age.

Re: Derrick Brooks??

At this point, with the number of injuries accumulating at a disturbing pace, we should revisit that $ issue. Penny Wise and Pound Foolish.

Marginal profits from reducing expenses - couple million.
Spending marginal profits on All Pro who helps win Super Bowl - priceless.

Re: Derrick Brooks??

Pass - he's been doing a lot of studio analyst work, probably not in shape now. I'd rather pick up a UFA if we need to.

Re: Derrick Brooks??

We offered him the minimum. We had to bring in a TE for Billy Miller so we went after David Thomas. Fuji was healthy at the time. I guess they figure we can do it with Dunbar until Scott comes back.
