    49ers Ahmad Brooks Signs 6-year Extension

    The San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed LB Ahmad Brooks to a six-year contract extension through the 2017 season.

    Brooks (6-3, 259) originally joined the 49ers when he was claimed off waivers from Cincinnati on 8/31/08. Despite not seeing the field in 2008, Brooks went on to play in 45 games (17 starts) over the next three seasons, and recorded 115 tackles, 18.0 sacks, six forced fumbles and one interception. His 18.0 sacks rank second on the team over that span (DT Justin Smith 22.0 sacks). Brooks started all 16 games and both postseason contests last season, setting career-highs in both tackles (59) and sacks (7.0). In 2009, he set the franchise record for most forced fumbles by a linebacker in a single-season with five.

    Brooks originally entered the league as a third round selection in the 2006 supplemental draft by the Cincinnati Bengals. He was later waived by Cincinnati on 8/30/08 and claimed off waivers by San Francisco on 8/31/08. Brooks, a six-year veteran, has played in 58 games (24 starts) and has registered 169 tackles, 20.0 sacks, seven forced fumbles and one interception.

    That seems like a lot for probably the 4th best LB on the team. Not that he's a slouch but my god that linebacking corps.

    Patrick Willis
    Navarro Bowman
    Aldon Smith

    All they need is more dynamic QB play and a WR and that team is a contender for a long while.

    That is really a filthy LB corp - especially in the age of FA.

    That's a murderous unit right there. It helps also when you got guys like Justin Smith upfront. Aldon Smith justified his draft selection too.

    Jets need to nab some passrushers and D speed merchants in the draft this year. There are actually a few decent LB prospects this year, which should help

    CMart is great at monitoring breaking stories and tweets. I appreciate his work in that area. But the front office?

    Sanchez would fit in that system very well IMO.
