Long time Falcons linebacker Keith Brooking is on the move, as the now free agent is going to play in Dallas in 2009, as sources at the National Football Post report Brooking is going to sign with the Cowboys. The site is reporting that Brooking is signing a three-year deal with Big D.
The signing is a blow for the Falcons, who drafted Brooking in the first round back in 1998, and he’s been a leader on the defensive side of the ball for them over the past 11 seasons. Brooking has played in 161 games over the past 11 years, all with Atlanta, and has a whooping 1139 tackles and 17 sacks with 12 interceptions.
In last years playoff season, Brooking, in 16 starts last season, put up 102 tackles. The coming aboard of Brooking could mean that Zach Thomas could be on his way out of Dallas after just one season. No word on the money that is involved with bringing Brooking aboard.
