Bills CB Ron Brooks tweets 2016 plans: 'Sad to leave but business is business'
Free agency doesn't start in the NFL for another two months, but players are free to express their future plans for next season. After all, there's nothing forcing an impending free agent to stay with their current team.
Buffalo Bills cornerback Ron Brooks, who's set to be an unrestricted free agent in March, took to Twitter on Friday to announce he won't be coming back to Buffalo in 2016.
Preciate everybody with the @Buffalobills and the great fans of WNY!!! It's been a good ride. Sad to leave but business is business— Pick 6 (@RonBrooks33) January 8, 2016
It's somewhat of a surprising move for a player to declare he won't return to his current team, but Brooks did just that. He has spent the last four seasons in Buffalo, making just three starts and 74 tackles in that span. He came into the league as a fourth-round pick in 2012 but hasn't made a huge impact with the Bills as he's failed to record a single interception.
Sometimes a player just needs a fresh start, and that's what it seems like Brooks wants. He likely won't see much playing time in Buffalo regardless with Ronald Darby and Stephon Gilmore holding a firm grip on the top-two cornerback spots.
