    That or some team may want him after the draft if they don't get a LB during...


    He may even go back to the Bucs, last I read it said they may offer him a cheaper contract.


    Or you may be right and he's done.

    Kinda shocked the colts haven't picked him up.
    That's a Tampa-2/Cover 2 system

    I think he leadership would be great and maybe he could can play well like Junior Seau did in New England. In the 3-4 Brooks won't have to cover as much ground.

    I would sign him to a very cheap contract.

    I think he will sign with Indy since they run a similar scheme (I assume they're not changing defensive schemes?)

    Because the Patriots are waiting to see who they get in the draft before they sign him to a one year minimum salary contract.

    That's a valid statement.

    Linebackers don't have the longevity that db's do. Ten years is a long time for a linebacker to play. It is very difficult to maintain speed at their size into their mid thirties.

    He's old and seems can only play significantly in a Tampa 2 scheme which is being pushed to the wayside for 3-4 scheme now. Not to mention hes old and prolly gonna just retire a Buc.
