Derrick Brooks to Saints seems unlikely

When sorting through potential landing spots for former Bucs LB Derrick Brooks, the Saints looked like a potential destination, particularly after Monday's retirement announcement from Dan Morgan.

New Orleans media asked Saints coach Sean Payton about the possibility of the team adding a veteran linebacker in the wake of Morgan's move, and Payton basically dismissed the notion.

Brooks continues to hold out hope that he will play in 2009, but it isn't totally up to him. He says there has been contact between teams and his representatives, but so far nothing has materialized.

Brooks was released by the Bucs in February after 14 seasons.
