    They just brought in a sixth running for camp fodder. Something tells me if they were interested in Brooks (or vice versa) he would have been here before now to compete with the other LBs.

    Ya know ....now that I've thought about it.

    1) Alexander's replacement might be found in somebody already in camp.

    2) The extent of Lenon's injury is unknown. Could be nothing. Camp is long so he still may have time to acclimate to the D.

    3) Just because Derrick Brooks played primarily out of the 4-3 his whole career doesn't mean he'd be so easily accustomed to our scheme.

    Thanks.:cool:

    No one wants Brooks. The Raiders took Morlon Greenwood over Brooks this week. That tells me he is probably done.

    Mine....on the Pats?

    Hmmm....Brady is the obvious answer.

    But I really like Wilfork in all-aspects....as a player and person.

    He doesn't want to play on ST? Forget about signing here then.

    No Jersey Selected

    Nope. Not interested. Maybe if we've been running the 4-3 for a few years now and Derrick Brooks, at age 26, was available - then yes. But not now.

    Disable Jersey

    If this team is going to play 4-3 all the time, they should sign Brooks up immediately. The coverage skills of Guyton and Mayo have been questionable to this point, and I think I'm being kind when I put it that way.

    I'd fully support this signing. Unless he has a foot amputated, Brooks would be an upgrade over Alexander.

    Does Brooks have a problem being a backup?

    No.

    Derrick Brooks may be hall-of-fame worthy, but it's not like he has lost a half step; lost two steps is more like it.

    i.e. Alexander will get cut and replaced by some jag. Not some useless old pro-bowler like Brooks.

    I'm trying to be more positive.

    No, the Pats need to get the growing pains started now.

    Some Jag maybe. We don't really have too many linebackers in camp, a good many are DEs who are really situational pass rushers.

    Of course Alexander doesn't seem to be able to play the position either, so...

    Why are we discussing Alexander as if he is even close to a roster spot? I have Ninkovitch, Lenon, Ciurciu and even Tank Williams all ahead of him for a 9th LB roster spot if there even is one.

    OUR EIGHT LINEBACKERS
    Thomas, Burgess, Banta-Cain, Woods, Crable
    Mayo, Guyton, Bruschi

    Wasn't Ciurciu brought in specifically to replace Izzo on ST.
