Broncos Vs. Falcons: Former Falcon Keith Brooking Returns To Georgia Dome

Keith Brooking, a former standout linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons, is set to make his return to the Georgia Dome on Sunday as a member of the Denver Broncos. Brooking played for the Falcons from 1998 to 2008, making five Pro Bowl within that span. When the Falcons declined to re-sign Brookings in 2008, he was picked up by the Dallas Cowboys. He spent three years with Dallas, one of which included an odd scene against his former team:

It was somewhat comical - and certainly out of character - how he trash-talked his former team and mocked them during Dallas' win. (He later apologized for the trash-talking. But when asked about taunting the team by flapping his arms like a bird during the game, he responded, "I ain't apologizing to anybody."

The Broncos signed Brooking in August, and he missed much of the preseason with a hamstring injury. Denver is now using him primarily on special teams and, to a lesser extent, to spell weakside linebacker Wesley Woodyard.
