Ron Brooks Could Earn a Bigger Role for the Buffalo Bills

"It’s safe to say that the Buffalo Bills’ final preseason game against the Detroit Lions wasn’t entirely pretty. After all, Matt Simms was starting at quarterback in the game, and he stands no chance of making the final roster. The highlight of his night was a pass he threw while being thrown to the ground, and it went backwards as a 20 yard fumble toss. However, the good part of tonight’s game was getting a look at some of the team’s defensive depth and talent. One player stood out in particular, and that was defensive back Ron Brooks.Brooks is a fourth-year man out of LSU, and he has been on the Bills’ roster for the last three seasons. He has not logged a ton of playing time, but he had a solid year in limited action, totaling 31 tackles and defending a pass for the team. Brooks has never looked great, but he is an all-around solid backup player who has been a mainstay on the team’s depth chart."
