Green Bay Packers signing LB Ahmad Brooks

Report: Packers to sign LB Brooks

The day before Brooks' deal to come to Green Bay was being finalized, Packers outside linebackers coach Winston Moss was asked for his opinion on the former San Francisco 49ers standout.

During his time with the San Francisco 49ers, Hylton High School graduate Ahmad Brooks accomplished plenty in nine years. Can play stout versus the tight end.

The 33-year-old Brooks had been a reliable edge-rusher since, recording at least six sacks in every season since 2011.

Still, general manager Ted Thompson wouldn't be forking over $5 million in late August if Brooks wasn't being counted on to play a major role at outside linebacker.

They can divide and then morph into other kinds of cells - red blood cells, muscle cells, whatever our bodies need. The article was written by doctors unconnected with the clinic who treated the women for the disastrous results.

Behind them, top backup Jayrone Elliott has been battling back issues for the past week, second-year man Kyler Fackrell has done little to distinguish himself in camp and rookie fourth-round pick Vince Biegel remains on the physically unable to perform list following offseason foot surgery. Moss said it would be a "major challenge" to get Biegel ready for the September 10 opener.

In Brooks, Green Bay is getting a hard-nosed, cagey player who they hope has a few good years left in him.

But they clearly feel like they need the linebacker depth. He projects to play behind current starters Clay Matthews and Nick Perry at outside linebacker and will likely rotate in frequently on passing downs. Adding Brooks to the rotation will decrease the workload for both Matthews and Perry, and should either go down for a game or two, the Virginia product can slot right in. But it really comes down to the final 53. However, Rapoport said the Denver Broncos are interested in signing him as well.

Not anymore, now that Brooks is in the mix.
