Aaron Lafette Brooks (born March 24, 1976) is a retired American football quarterback of the NFL. He was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in the fourth round of the 1999 NFL Draft. He played college football at Virginia.

Brooks played for the New Orleans Saints and Oakland Raiders. Brooks retired in 2007 as the Saints' franchise leader in season and career touchdown passes, though both records have since been broken by Drew Brees.

Aaron, and his second cousin Michael Vick, who lived in a public housing project in the East End area of Newport News, and was 4 years younger, rarely spent time together. Mentored by Coach Tommy Reamon, Brooks played high school football and graduated from Homer L. Ferguson High School in Newport News. He was awarded a scholarship to attend the University of Virginia (UVA), from which he graduated in 1999.
