The Denver Broncos have signed veteran linebacker Keith Brooking Monday, the team announced.

Brooking, a 15th-year player, was a rookie for the Atlanta Falcons in 1998 — the year they played the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Brooking is a five-time Pro Bowl selection who has seen action in 209 career regular-season games (179 starts) with Atlanta (1998-2008) and Dallas (2009-11), totaling 1,387 tackles (1,070 solo), 21 sacks (148.5 yds.), 13 interceptions (185 yds.), 64 passes defensed, eight forced fumbles and 10 fumble recoveries, the Broncos said in a release.

At 36 years old, Brooking isn’t going to push for starting time, but at 6-2, 240 lbs., he’ll add size (very needed) and experience to this linebacker corps. We’ll see if he makes it through camp and preseason.
