Re: Derrick Brooks??

Yer i'd be glad if we brought in brooks, one of the biggest things about him is that he still looks like hes got the same speed as he did back in 2002 wen tampa won the super bowl. We need some speed from the edges

Re: Derrick Brooks??

I was begging for Brooks when they brought him in. I wish they would do it now before it is too late.

Re: Derrick Brooks??

didnt we already turn him away once before......he obviously isnt worth the spot or we would've picked him up and cut one of the other backups

Re: Derrick Brooks??

Well now that the season is 8 weeks old, his contract would be a lot more cheaper. They kicked the tires once, why not do it again. If anything you know that the guy would be fresh, just not sure how game ready he would be after sitting on a couch since the beginning of the season

I don't know. It didn't really seem like the Saints wanted any part of him after the workouts.

Re: Derrick Brooks??

Shanel has helped but lacks speed and of course Vilma has more than held his own we but still need a explosive type of guy to round out the linebackers and give Vilma some strong run support help. I am not sure even when Scott F is healthy he fits this bill. I think Smith if available may be better but I would take either one right now.

Re: Derrick Brooks??

Looks like an area that the front office will need to address in free agency or the draft. Arnoux is on IR so the team still doesn't know what they have in him, I'm confident that Micky will fix it somehow

Re: Derrick Brooks??

There must have been a good reason not to bring him in. I would have to believe someone would have signed him by now if the guy had something to offer. Still, he is very experienced and should at least have a decent half a season in him, who knows...

Re: Derrick Brooks??

I think if he fit with what Payton wanted he'd be in uniform. So far we are doing fine with Fujita out. Just need to watch our turnovers on Offense.
