Why did we overpay so much for Brooks? And where does that leave us now?

He will if he plays out his contract and meets signing bonuses and other bonus money....

if he actually gets paid all 44 million, then the contract is a bargain.

Is Brooks better then these men?
Keep I'm mind Brooks also played more snaps then ant othe defensive player

Wimbley: 11 Sacks, 69 Tackles - Career High.

Brooks: 7 Sacks, 49 Tackles - Career High.


Yup and he followed that rookie performance with
5.0, 4.0, 6.5, 9.0, 7.0
Raiders didn't pay him for those 11 sacks he got

Yeah but it effects the future cap and how many guys we can sign. And guys this year like Colston, Vincent Jackson and Dwayne Bowe. All probably out now.

only because we wouldnt have shelled out the money to get one of them. we had the cap space to but instead gave the money to brooks. unless the deal is full of incentives we over paid.
Im sure his base pay the first couple of yrs is pretty low. Its most likely a back loaded contract.

Well he never did that in his career. I hope he does. But we will see.

First season as a starter, Brooks gets 7 sacks, 1 FF, 10 QB hits, 40 QB pressures AND breaks Tony Romo's ribs...and peeps have got a problem with him re-signing? Niner Talk has gone batsh*t crazy.
when is the last time this organization has put themselves in a positoin to be hog tied by a contract?

and on another note brooks isn't sticking his hand in any zoners pockets to get paid so who gives a rats azz

this

We hit and miss with OLBs for 5 years and we finally find a couple and people get mad that we resign him for 44 mill

3-4 OLBs are not easy to find theyre one of the hardest positions to find because it takes such a large skill set, you hav eto be able to rush the passer, be strong against the run, set the edge and occasionally drop back in coverage, and also play with your hand in the dirt sometimes.

Its not an easy position to find and Brooks is definitely worth 44 mill because he's the most complete OLB on the team right now. Aldon needs work against the run and in pass coverage

Solid player that is entering the prime of his career that plays a position thats hard to find

It was Brooks.
WE DID NOT OVER PAY FOR BROOKS ...WHO ARE YOU AND DID YOU WATCH THE DEFENSE THIS YEAR, YOU SHOULD LOOK AT BEING A FAN OF ANOTHER TEAM.
Hes not overpaid. I dont understand why this is so difficult. Either he plays poorly, and doesnt earn his entire contract.....or he plays at a Pro Bowl level, and earns the whole contract.

Good resigning.
