"49ERS CLAIM AHMAD BROOKS
Posted by Michael David Smith on August 31, 2008, 9:07 p.m.

Linebacker Ahmad Brooks was waived by the Cincinnati Bengals today, but he wasn’t unemployed for long. Brooks was claimed by the San Francisco 49ers today.

The Press Democrat reports that the 49ers thought highly enough of Brooks when he entered the 2006 supplemental draft that they were willing to spend a fourth-round draft pick to acquire him. The Bengals ended up taking him with a third-round pick.

To make room for Brooks on the 53-man roster, the 49ers released linebacker Dontarrious Thomas, whom they signed to a free-agent contract with a $400,000 signing bonus in March."

Thomas played for Tomlin in Minnesota & was pretty productive, with the injuries to Harrison & Humpal this could be a good veteran pick-up.

Possibly,but how good can he be if.........

1.He was cut by the 49ers.

2.He was cut for a guy that was cut by the Bungles. :shock:

Brooks played HS ball right around the corner from where I live. I got to see him play many times and knew many of his teammates. Word is while he was a great player he was dumb as a box of rocks. It's one of those great mysteries of life how he got into UVA. Oh, what am I saying ... he is a football player. That's how he got into UVA. That's also how he got kicked out of UVA. :D
