Brooks finished the year with 53 tackles (41 solo), six sacks and a forced fumble.
While never spectacular, Brooks continues to turn in solid seasons from a statistical standpoint, offering a good mix of tackles and sacks that keep him IDP-relevant. The 32-year-old was relied upon heavily as the team was struck with injuries at the linebacker position. Brooks remains under contract for next season and would fit the team's need for a versatile outside linebacker. Due to his rising age and salary, there is always a chance the 49ers opt to cut him to move towards younger options through the draft or free agency. If that were to happen, Brooks would need to land a starting job in a 3-4 system to retain IDP value.
Brooks recorded five tackles (four solo) and racked up his sixth sack of the season in Saturday's 22-21 win over Los Angeles.
Brooks continues to produce in his 11th season. He has at least six sacks in six consecutive seasons. He will look to finish the season strong against the Seahawks on Sunday.
Brooks was held out of camp early with an undisclosed injury. While the nature of the injury was never revealed, it appears as though it's no longer an issue. The 32-year-old linebacker is expected to start this season, but he'll have to perform well during the preseason to fend off younger linebackers such as Eli Harold, Corey Lemonier and Tank Carradine.
49ers defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil wouldn't disclose the nature of Brooks' injury, but said that he is "hoping that we can get something out of him by the end of spring." It doesn't sound like the injury is serious, and we will update his status as soon as more information is provided by the team.
