Tedy Bruschi on Brooks penalty: “Get tough Drew Brees”

Former NFL linebacker Tedy Bruschi is jumping into the Ahmad Brooks penalty debate as well. He spoke out on ESPN lending his support to Brooks, implying that he did not agree with the penalty on the San Francisco 49ers linebacker after his hit on New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees.

Bruschi offered to help pay any fine the league threw at Brooks.



Last night, former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis stated on Monday Night Countdown that he would pay half of Brooks' fine should the league penalize him further.

Teammates who did not make the trip to New Orleans and were watching from home were vocal with their dissatisfaction with the outcome.
