Report: Terrence Brooks signs two-year deal with Patriots
The New England Patriots tend to make under-the-radar moves every offseason. We’ll likely be talking about their signing of Terrence Brooks during their gazillionth Super Bowl run.
According to Adam Schefter, the Patriots signed Brooks to a two-year deal. The details regarding the money for the deal have yet to be disclosed.
So one might ask, who is Terrence Brooks? Brooks is a free safety who has spent five seasons in the NFL. The Baltimore Ravens selected him in the third round of the 2014 NFL Draft.
In his five-year career, Brooks has suited up for three different teams. Most recently, Brooks played for the New York Jets in 2017 and 2018.
For the most part, Brooks spent most of his time on special teams. On defense, he rotated every now and then into the secondary.
In 2018, Brooks managed to get two interceptions over the course of the season. That’s pretty impressive considering he only started in one game and has just three interceptions in his career.
Now for the Patriots, it’s unknown what role Brooks will play in 2019. Leave it to Bill Belichick to turn this guy into a Pro Bowl talent in one season.
If you’re the Jets, you’re probably sick to your stomach knowing that New England sees potential in someone like Brooks.
The Patriots constantly take other teams trash and turn them into their treasure. After that, they let the player go—where they land a huge contract elsewhere.
Then, that same player is never heard from again. It’s just a revolving door that continues to provide fruitful results for the Patriots.
Don’t be surprised if we hear Brooks’ name as a wanted commodity in a couple of years.
