Linebacker Sued for $2 million Dollars

Future free agent Keith Brookings is being sued by bank Wells Fargo for unpaid loans, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Wells Fargo claims the former Falcons star took out loans exceeding $2 million in August 2008 and still owes $1,996,224.73 as of January this year, a sum that will rise with interest and legal costs. The lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Atlanta, also accused Brooking of attempting to shift his assets to avoid repayment.

Brooking, who is about to become a free agent after three years with the Dallas Cowboys, denies the accusations. Brookings agent Pat Dye Jr. told the Journal-Constitution, “There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever to support Wells Fargo’s allegations that Keith transferred any properties to fraudulently conceal assets. He is absolutely, fiercely defending himself in this lawsuit.”

Keith Brooking has not missed a game with Dallas, playing in all 48 games, making 253 tackles, 4 sacks and 1 interception. It’s not clear if Brookings will be back in Dallas but things are not looking good. Keith made only three starts for the Cowboys in 2011.
