Brooks signed a six-year, $44.5 million contract extension with San Francisco on Tuesday that will take him through the 2017 season and keep one of the NFL's best linebacker units intact. The deal is worth $17.5 million guaranteed, said his agent, Greg Williams.||||||| Brooks emerged as a regular starter for the first time in his six-year NFL career last season. Along with All-Pro inside linebackers Patrick Willis and NaVorro Bowman and sensational rookie Aldon Smith at the other outside spot, Brooks helped the 49ers win the NFC West behind one of the league's best defenses. San Francisco allowed only 14.3 points per game, second only to Pittsburgh at 14.2.

Singletary said he didn't think Brooks, who suffered a lacerated kidney in practice Aug. 6, would miss any of the regular season.||||||| Brooks has been cleared for running, lifting and light exercise with no contact, but he did not practice.
Posted April 02, 2010
The San Francisco have signed Brooks to a two-year contract. The team announced the deal Friday. Brooks had received a second-round tender but was able to reach a longer-term deal to stay in San Francisco.||||||| Brooks set a career-high last season with six sacks and tied the franchise record for forced fumbles by a linebacker with four. Brooks entered the league as a third-round pick by Cincinnati in the 2006 supplemental draft. He started seven games in two seasons with the Bengals before being released in 2008.
Posted Aug. 31, 2009
Brooks had arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Monday to remove a small bone fragment, a procedure that likely will keep him out of San Francisco's season opener Sept. 13, at Arizona.||||||| Brooks had an MRI exam on his knee late Sunday and it was determined he needed surgery, which was done at nearby Stanford University. He is likely to be sidelined two or three weeks. Brooks, a fourth-year pro in his second season with San Francisco, is a backup outside linebacker to Parys Haralson. He wasn't active for any games last season.
Posted Nov. 23, 2008
The 49ers declared Brooks inactive for their game against Dallas on Sunday.||||||| Brooks has not played this season after being acquired off waivers on Aug. 31.
