I don't think I have seen a post about this guy, but Gary Brackett (ILB - Colts) is a UFA. He is a very good player and I think could be a good player for us. He isn't tall (5-11, 235 Lbs, 29 years old), but he is fast and has GREAT instincts. Ray Lewis type skill set. NO I am not saying he is as GREAT as Lewis, so calm down. I'm just saying they have similar SKILL SETS. I know he plays in the 4-3 right now, but a 4-3 ILB is actually harder than a 3-4 ILB, so I think he could make the transition because this guy is VERY good against the run. Plus he is a high character guy from all the reports I have seen and could be a Good Defensive leader for us, which we really need. I would not mind picking up this guy.

Sorry guys I hadn't seen this thread:

No he is not VERY fast at all but is very smart and a good tackler. Problem is I think we want our own guys and parcells likes his linebackers like women want their men... big.

Good player but only 235 and more suited to a 4-3.

Yea he is a 43 guy..he is way too small to be in a 34....

In a 34 you have to fight more O linemen as well..

So he would essentially have to work harder

Brackett is not a 3-4 LB. He is strictly a 4-3 guy.

1-He is too small at 235lbs.
2-He is too slow even though his instincts make up for it.

I would have to say NO to Brackett. Sorry!
