Good move as a player, probably not so much as a role model.

Could be a nice change for him. Not to mention he can end his career on a team that can contend for a title. I hope this works out.

Can our locker room keep a guy like this from being a problem?   If so he could be a welcome addition to our LB corps.

Its not five million.  The base is 3.5 million with escalators that could bring it to five.

I think its a good signing.  A bit expensive but Brooks is a proven veteran.

Cannot help but wonder, will this move CM 3 inside?

I'm not getting giddy, 49ers have had a poor pass rush, but that doesn't mean I don't like it. Brooks is anti-awful, and he could very quickly end up as a starting OLB sometime, given Perry and Matthews are fragile. It looks like a savvy move by the Packers, shoring up a thin position group. Elliott and Fackrell do not inspire confidence (at least, not yet), while Biegel has been out.

I asked a 49ers fan about him. He said he's at his best when there are good guys around him. Well, I rather like how the Packers D line is shaping and the rest of the D is on the uptick, imo. That bodes well.

<Gregg "Cannot help but wonder, will this move CM 3 inside? "> I really don't think so, at least not more than the occasional snap for variety. ILB is decent now, and getting stronger when J.Jones gets some more experience. It's the outside pass rush where the Packers are thin.

A good signing and welcomed assistance at a challenged position.

Green Bay's OLBs just got deeper. They may add another if the right guy becomes available.

Makes great sense, we are extremely weak at LB position and with Biegel recuperating from surgery this helps.  As many of you I've been harping about upgrading this position.  Brooks is excellent and he plays his best against teams like GB, Seattle, AZ, etc.  Can SF cut Bowman, Too?

He'll make the entire rush better. He's not what he used to be in pass pro, but he's an attacker / hitter. Nothing sweet about his game. Mike Daniels has to be a happy man :)

I like this move, it addresses an area of concern on the team. Ted makes moves that he believes will strengthen his football team. And you can bet Ted thoroughly vetted him and built plenty of character outs into the contract
The Green Bay Packers never lost a football game.
They just ran out of time.
