Cowboys and LB Keith Brooking reach agreement

Well, the Cowboys decided to wait a day before getting active. On the heels of the Anthony Henry for Jon Kitna trade, Dallas is going to bring veteran Atlanta linebacker Keith Brooking on board.

A day after he was unable to reach a deal to remain in Atlanta linebacker Keith Brooking has joined the. Cowboys.

Brooking will sign a three year deal.

The move reunites Brooking with coach Wade Phillips, who was his defensive coordinator in Atlanta

Brooking is a Georgia Tech guy, so you know he's good. I kid! With this move Zach Thomas is almost assuredly done as a Cowboy and it would pretty much put the nail in the coffin of a move for Ray Lewis. The question now is what becomes of Kevin Burnett?

[UPDATE, from the threads]:  Blogger Tarheel Paul quotes former Cowboys GM Gil Brandt, who told Sirius NFL Radio that the Cowboys have scheduled a visit for former Redskins CB Shawn Springs.

[UPDATE II]: The Keith Brooking deal is relatively cheap. DC.com says about $6 million for three years with $2.5 million guaranteed.
