  • Hylton graduate Ahmad Brooks to meet Tuesday with Green Bay Packers

With a need at outside linebacker following a slew of injuries at that position, the Green Bay Packers are scheduled to meet Tuesday with Hylton graduate Ahmad Brooks, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.

Brooks spent the last nine seasons in San Francisco, but the 49ers cut the 33-year-old loose Friday. Can play stout versus the tight end. He has tallied at least six sacks every year since 2009. He can play the outside linebacker, he can play the elephant.

Behind them, top backup Jayrone Elliott has been battling back issues for the past week, second-year man Kyler Fackrell has done little to distinguish himself in camp and rookie fourth-round pick Vince Biegel remains on the physically unable to perform list following offseason foot surgery. "If he were to be placed on our roster - however that decision goes down - he could come right in and fit right in". He was selected in the third round of the 2006 supplemental draft out of Virginia by the Cincinnati Bengals and payed two seasons there. "We wish him and his family nothing but the best". "But we'll take it a day at a time, we'll take it a week at a time, and whatever it takes. Or if he's put on the PUP, then we'll deal with that as it comes".

Clay Matthews had a career low in sacks with five for the Packers in 2016, so Green Bay may be after some insurance and depth this season.

Abbas to meet with U.S. delegation on Thursday
The Palestinian president has said he would pressure Kushner to have the White House reaffirm commitment to the two-state solution.

Louie Benjamin of Pro Football Focus ranked the Packers' front seven 16th overall heading into this season, nothing they "lack a difference-maker at linebacker".

Matthews (groin) and Perry (ankle) were injured in last Saturday's preseason game at Denver, although neither is considered a serious injury.

Not anymore, now that Brooks is in the mix.
