The Broncos continue to dip into the free agent pool to add depth by signing veteran Linebacker Keith Brooking to a one year deal.
Brooking is a 6'2 245 pound 36 year old inside linebacker. He was drafted 12th overall in 1998 by the Falcons. He played there for 11 years having 5 Pro Bowl seasons from 2001 to 2006 and 2 All Pro seasons.
Brooking than signed with Dallas and remained there for the previous three seasons and was now a free agent.
Brooking has two 200-plus tackle seasons and has played in every game since 2001.
Brooking adds depth to the Broncos linebacker group. It is unsure where Brooking will fit in but probably the back-up of middle linebacker Joe Mays.
