Brooking played 11 seasons with Atlanta and says he looks forward to returning in a Cowboys uniform. "I have a lot of history there. I mean, there's people in that organization that mean a great deal to me so to beat their heads in would be nice." Brooking made the tongue in cheek comments earlier in the week.
Brooking has become a team leader and knows Sunday's game could be the key to a successful season. "I'm just gonna enjoy. I'm gonna go out there try to help our football team win and get to 4-2. And it's not about me playing my former team, it's about the Cowboys winning a big game game against a very good opponent and create some momentum after a bye week."
The Cowboys (3-2) play the Falcons (4-1) Sunday afternoon at Cowboys Stadium.
