I really hope it's only for depth because this guy is done...he will be the Backup of Woodyard i think.

Travathan was looking good enough behind Woodyard that I dont see why there would be a need for Brooking. Is this more an indictment of both Mohammed and Irving?

This is just a weird signing. I've heard of kicking the tires, but this vehicle is blocks in a junkyard.

Guys, hes just a camp body to push the young guys. He'll mentor/be the coach-on-the-field at LB. This LB core is in dire need of leadership. DJ cant handle that. Brooking plays with a lot of intensity and can maybe show some of the young guys the grind.

Glass half full I guess.

So do they waste a roster spot on a yesteryear player to help coach the younger guys or is he just here for preseason?

I'm thinking DJ will be cut. As Jersey said, its a good guy to have around for the young linebackers. He can teach the position and what it takes to make it in this league, as well as how to be a professional - something DJ can't teach.


I don't think Irving has made the strides the coaching staff expected, which is unfortunate. Hopefully Brooking can provide coaching and guidance to our young guys; Von, Woodyard, Irving, and Muhammed.


All that said I'm this excited about this signing - Confused

Has he ever played MLB? Maybe they are thinking about him as a backup to Mays. We are pretty thin in the middle. Im not even sold on Mays.

Yeah,I think its just preseason but thats just me. I think its just a grindy old vet who wont shy from physicality. Hes a rah-rah guy now. When you have all young starters, it takes a vet to come in and show them the ropes.

That's putting it mildly. Laughing

Just got up and looked on my phone and it said "Broncos have signed five time Pro Bowl linebacker Keith Brooking." I am tired so once this news sunk in, I thought: Wait what? For five years? Shocked Then I took a second look Very Happy Anyways, his first two years in Dallas were still okay. At least that's what I remember. Last season, he appeard in 16 games, started three and notched 50 tackles and two passes defensed. Could have done worse in terms of a depth signing. The signing is an immediate leadership boost for another position group. Manning, McGahee, Stokely, Brooking, Champ, Dawkins/now Adams are now our core of vets on this team... All these guys serve a purpose even if they aren't on the field. And in some cases, that also is a plus: That they don't have to be on the field.
