#55, outstanding weakside linebacker for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Derrick Brooks is considered by SI as one of the 25 best LBs of all time. He is categorized by his blazing speed and athleticism, his leadership, his consistency, and vicious hits on the field. He's a player that isn't about the money and loves the game and the fans in Tampa(similar to a Brett Favre). He's been in Tampa for over 10 years now and is still the best, and his play has not declined with age. Hes been in many pro bowls, and was the mvp of the 2006 game. In the '02 super bowl season, he had scored 4 total defensive touchdowns off ints.
Derrick Brooks is simply the best there is.
