Happy Birthday Derrick Brooks

April 18th, 2021

Special day for No. 55.

The greatest living Buccaneer has a birthday today. And Mr. Derrick Brooks is celebrating.

To make you feel old, Derrick today is now four years older than park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, Bucs-Super-Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady, who just led the Bucs to the first Super Bowl since Brooks was in his prime.

Joe wishes Derrick a tremendous birthday. And may he have many, many, many more.

    I am bias of course but Double Nickle
    Was a Pioneer of the WIL position

    Never forget them sayings BUCS took a chance on a Tweener who was much smaller in size to the traditional LB’s of the time

    We did the same a couple years later when we drafted a RB that was entirely too small to run between the tackles… LOL. At # 13 Overall Warrick Dunn was selected.

    Two of the finest Bucs & Noles of ALL TIME & great Men as well. Thanks Boys
