http://www.scout.com/nfl/broncos/story/1737671-von-miller-nfl-should-emu... Brooks was originally a seventh-round draft pick of the Seattle Seahawks last May. Just a few months before, Brooks was a member of the ACC Champion Clemson Tigers team that lost in the National Championship. Brooks contributed 599 yards rushing, 205 yards receiving, and eight total touchdowns during his time at Clemson.
Here's a quick scouting report on Brooks from NFL.com:
"Has the measurables and physical upside worthy of being drafted, but lacks the production and ability of an NFL running back. Might have to make his mark with a conversion to receiver or pass-catching running back."
Brooks never quite caught on with the Seahawks, one big reason being that he was one of three running backs selected by the team in the 2016 NFL Draft in addition to a backfield that already featured Christine Michael and Thomas Rawls, It was hard to even see the field, which Brooks did just twice in the preseason, picking up 21 yards on seven touches.
Brooks was eventually waived by the Seahawks, only to be added to their practice squad in late September, which they proceeded to release him from a month later.
The Kansas City Chiefs signed Brooks quickly, but then dropped him 12 days later. On Nov. 23, the Seahawks brought him back onto the practice squad, and then promptly let him go six days later.
We'll see if he sticks around in Denver.
