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.
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
