Jasper Jerrell Brinkley (born July 12, 1985 in Thomson, Georgia) is a linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings. Brinkley played his college football career for the University of South Carolina. Brinkley was selected by the Vikings in the 5th round of 2009 NFL Draft (150 overall).

Brinkley started at middle-linebacker due to the injury of E. J. Henderson during the 2009 season. Henderson seriously injured his leg against the Arizona Cardinals in week 13, and was out the remainder of the season. Brinkley has had a very close, apprentice-like relationship with Henderson who mentored him as a rookie throughout training camp and his first professional season, even quizzing him while watching film together. EJ Henderson's younger brother, Erin Henderson, is also a linebacker for the Minnesota Vikings while Jasper's twin brother, Casper Brinkley, played for the Carolina Panthers but is no longer with the team
