49ers’ DC Vic Fangio on OLB Ahmad Brooks: “I told coaches don’t put him in.”


Did San Francisco 49ers OLB Ahmad Brooks quit on the team? Well he wasn’t happy with his role and as a result, 49ers DC Vic Fangio benched him. However, Brooks was by no means caught off-guard as Fangio explained that Brooks knew the 49ers game-plan going in as he said:

Fangio then said that Brooks’ “had a bad reaction there at the end of the first-half of that game, it carried over into halftime. He came back after halftime, didn’t think he was in the right frame of mind, so I told coaches don’t put him in.”
