ENGLEWOOD, Colo.-The Denver Broncos have signed free agent tackle Barrett Brooks and re-signed exclusive-rights free agent guard Michael Moore.
Brooks, 29, has played six seasons in the NFL, most recently with Detroit (2000). He was with Cleveland in training camp last season (signed July 30, 2001), but was waived in the final cutdown (Sept. 2) and spent the 2001 season out of football.
The 6-4, 320-pound Brooks has played in 95 career games and started 62, including a streak of 88 consecutive games to begin his career (1995-2000). He was drafted by Philadelphia in the second round (58th
overall) in 1995 and spent four seasons with the Eagles, starting 46 of 64 games.
Brooks started 31 games at left tackle from 1995-96, and started 15 games at right tackle from 1997-98. He signed with Detroit as an unrestricted free agent April 12, 1999 and started 16 of the 31 games he played at right tackle for the Lions from 1999-2000. Brooks has also started four postseason games, including three at left tackle with Philadelphia (1995-96) and one at right tackle with Detroit (1999).
Brooks was a three-year starter at left tackle at Kansas State (1992-94), and earned first-team All-Big 8 honors as a senior.
A native of St. Louis, Mo., Brooks was an honorable mention all-state selection at McCluer High School in Florissant, Mo., where he also lettered in basketball. He and his wife, Sonji, have two sons, Romel
(9/5/91) and Daveed (8/13/97). Barrett Brooks was born May 5, 1972 in St. Louis.
Moore, 25, signed with the Broncos Dec. 24, 2001, and finished the season with the club, but did not play in either of the final two games. He had been with Washington in training camp but was waived in
the final cutdown. Moore was drafted by the Redskins in 2000 (4th round/129th overall) and played in five games (one start) in his rookie season.
The 6-2, 318-pound Moore started 11 games at left tackle as a senior at Troy (Ala.) State in 1999. He transferred to Troy State from Alabama, where he had lettered three years and played in 17 games (five starts) as a right guard.
A native of Fayette, Ala., Moore played both offense and defense at Fayette County High School and was named prep All-America. Moore is married (Cathy) and was born Nov. 1, 1976 in Fayette.
