LB Brooks Needs to Call Bears, Colts and Vikings for a Job

Former Buccaneers LB Derrick Brooks is still a player without a team, and today the St.Petersburg Times points out three teams that Brooks’ agent should be contacting – the Bears, Colts and Vikings.

If I am Derrick Brooks’ agent, I start by calling Chicago. I know, I know. The Bears are very good at linebacker. That said, Brooks would have a comfort level with Lovie Smith, his old linebacker coach, and general manager Jerry Angelo. After that, I think about Indianapolis.

The Colts still play former coach Tony Dungy’s defensive system, and the linebackers there aren’t exactly Canton-bound. Besides, Brooks always was faster on turf. Call No. 3 goes to Minnesota. After all, this is a win-now season for coach Brad Childress. And if Brett Favre is young enough at 39 for the Vikings, then Brooks should look like a teenager.

Brooks has said more than once he’ll play again, but so far there hasn’t been very many teams showing much interest in the aging LB.
