Analysis: The report says the deal could be worth up to $5 million. The Packers are in need of an experienced linebacker after Clay Matthews exited Saturday's game with an unspecified injury. Nick Perry and Jayrone Elliott have missed practice time with injuries, and fourth-round rookie Vince Biegel may be headed for the PUP list. Brooks was a starter for the past six seasons with the 49ers before being released last week.
