The NFL has suspended free agent linebacker Ahmad Brooks for six weeks, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

The violation is undisclosed.

Brooks, 34, played 12 games with Green Bay last season and made 19 tackles, 1.5 sacks and two pass breakups.

The Bengals made Brooks a third-round supplemental pick in 2006. He played two years in Cincinnati and eight with San Francisco before spending last season with Green Bay.

  1. The Packers have had quite a few substance abuse violations recently. Aaron Jones, Geronimo Allison, Letroy Guion twice, Mike Pennel twice, Demetri Goodson, and Datone Jones all since 2015. Where’s the leadership in the locker room?

    Most those guys are long gone. And the Vikings picked up Datone Jones AFTER his suspension. And how about Kentrell Brothers and Cayleb Jones? Those are recent ones, not from years back. Vikings already have 2 in 2018.

    2 reserves/ST players for the Vikes vs. all starters for the Packers. Not much of a comparison.

    He was going to sign with the Vikings. Another Viking in trouble.

    That’s too bad for the vikings – they could have used him. He’s not a quitter. Maybe some of his work ethic could have rubbed off on the rest of that vaunted defense. You know – the one that quit on their team last year in the biggest game of their season.

    He’s counting his money

    When the truth doesn’t work, just make stuff up. None of the guys you listed as GB starters are actually starters. They were all fringe/rotational/ST guys, and they’re all gone. The Vikings suspensions were on the Vikings roster THIS YEAR. Not to mention Cayleb Jones was still on the roster until he was charged with domestic assault for throwing his girlfriend on the floor and kicking her. I wouldn’t talk smack on this thread about a guy who spent his career in SF, played a handful of snaps for GB one season, and was a FA before he was suspended.
