Former Buc Derrick Brooks leaves New Orleans without contract



Linebacker Derrick Brooks, released by the Bucs in February, appears to have left New Orleans without a contract today after a workout with the Saints.

The team, which also worked out linebacker Derek Smith, said it does not plan to announce any signings today, according to the New Orleans Times-Picayune.

This was the first tangible sign a team was seriously looking into signing Brooks and certainly the first public acknowledgment by any team of interest in the Tampa Bay icon.

Brooks played for the Bucs for 14 seasons before his release.
