Mic’hael was signed as a free agent by the Lions in April 2015. He re-signed with the Lions in February 2017.
2016: Although ankle and knee injuries limited him to 13 games, 2016 was another productive season for Brooks on the interior of the defensive line. He recorded 18 tackles, one sack and also chipped-in with a pair of special teams stops. Perhaps his biggest play of the season came in a Week 1 victory over Calgary when he tackled Stamps’ QB Drew Tate short of the end zone on a third-and-goal from the one-yard line.
2015: An effective and notable CFL debut season for the skilled interior defensive lineman. Mic’heal appeared in all 18 games for the Lions in 2015 and tallied 51 defensive tackles, fifth-highest on the team to go along with three sacks and seven tackles for a loss. His two fumble recoveries were a team-high and his seven tackles for a loss tied him for the team lead with Adam Bighill. Mic’hael’s lofty numbers were recognized with a West Division All-Star nod.
2013-2014: Mic’hael was an undrafted free agent signing of the Detroit Lions in 2013 and was later claimed off waivers by the Seattle Seahawks in advance of training camp that year. Seeing multiple stints on the practice roster, Mic’hael made his NFL debut for the ‘Hawks versus the Atlanta Falcons in November 2014. He was placed back on the practice roster and eventually earned a Super Bowl ring with the Seahawks that season.
