Oakland Signs Aaron Brooks

Postby michaelavelli » Wed Mar 22, 2006 6:59 pm

Jerry McDonald, of the Oakland Tribune, reports the Oakland Raiders have agreed to terms with free agent QB Aaron Brooks (Saints) on an undisclosed contract, according to two NFL sources.


Not exactly a "mentor" type QB for a potential rookie quarterback...maybe Brooks is just gonna be the guy?

Maybe he'll just be the guy until Andrew Walter develops. That's my guess anyways. But considering it's the smart move as well, this probably isn't the direction Al Davis will pursue. :-D

an upgrade from Collins but i dont expect much to change. Brooks can throw the long ball but the combination of his mental mistakes and a piss poor defense wont help the team out much. Look for a repeat of 2005.

I dunno. I can still see Al Davis drafting Young if he falls that far. He is senile like that

I don't think drafting the best player available is senile at all. And I also don't think Brooks is the answer at Oakland (I still like Brooks, but I think they need a more dependable guy...). I do think Walter is the answer, but they might let him go, I guess.

Anyways, the Ravens have drafted BPA for a while now, and while they may not be the best team in the league, they draft like champs.

Last year:Mark Clayton, Dan Cody (steal at mid-2), Adam Terry (also steal)

2004: no 1st

2003: Terrell Suggs, Boller (well Suggs is good), Musa at 3rd

2002: 1st- Ed Reed, 2nd- Anthony Weaver

2001: 1st- Todd Heap, 2nd- Gary Baxter, 4th Edgerton Hartwell

2000: Jamal, 6th Adalius Thomas (multi-Pro Bowler for Special Teams)

1999: 1st- CMac, 4th- Brandon Stokley

1998: 1st-Duane Starks (off year, I guess... he's the only name)

1997: 1st-Bowlware, 2nd-Jamie Sharper

1996: 1a-Ray Lewis, 1b-Ogden

make your Boller cracks if you want, but the Ravens have been (I'll go as far as to say) the most successful team in the last decade in evaluating talent and not having busts on their roster (not ones they draft, anyways). And the Ravens were one of the teams that popularized the BPA draft style.

Point being, if Oakland drafts Young, I'll commend them. Best player available if he falls to 7.
