RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Brinkley, who recorded 27 tackles in 15 games with the Cardinals last season, returned to Minnesota in the offseason, where he played the first four seasons of his career. He'll compete with Audie Cole for the starting middle linebacker role in the preseason.

2012

Brinkley is likely to begin the season as Minnesota's starting middle linebacker. He may come out on nickel packages, but he could emerge as an IDP option in deeper leagues. However, we'll need to see if he can stay healthy as he missed all of last season after hip surgery and a groin injury held him out of minicamp.

2010

Will provide depth at middle linebacker and could start in case of injury.

2009

The hard hitting Brinkley will backup E.J. Henderson at the middle linebacker position. Brinkley won't play much with Henderson stuck in front of him but he will contribute on special teams and in various spot roles.
