Derrick Brooks Biography
NFL veteran linebacker, Derrick Brooks was born April 18, 1973 in Pensacola, Florida. He was drafted by the Buccaneers 28th overall in the 1995 NFL Draft. He played college football at Florida State.
An 11-time Pro Bowl selection and nine-time All-Pro, Brooks was named AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2002. He earned a Super Bowl ring with the Buccaneers in Super Bowl XXXVII.
Brooks has long been considered one of the premier linebackers in the NFL, as respected off the field as he is feared on it. He was selected to the Pro Bowl every year from 1997 to 2006, but his 10-year streak ended in 2007, as he did not make the 2007 Pro Bowl. He was selected to the 2009 Pro Bowl, his eleventh selection. Brooks is one of 5 players in history to be voted to 10 Pro Bowls, named Defensive Player of the Year, and be a Super Bowl Champion. The other 4 are Mike Singletary, Reggie White, Lawrence Taylor, and Ray Lewis. He has also been named All-Pro 9 times. Brooks currently leads all defensive players in consecutive starts, surpassing the 200 start mark late in the 2007 season.
Brooks also was named NFL Defensive Player of the Year by the Associated Press in 2002. That year, Brooks returned three interceptions for touchdowns in the regular season, an NFL record for linebackers, and also returned a fumble for a score, for a total of an NFL record 4 defensive touchdowns at the OLB position. In Super Bowl XXXVII, his 44-yard interception return for a touchdown ensured a victory for the Buccaneers.
Brooks earned 2006 Pro Bowl MVP honors by returning a Trent Green pass 59 yards for a touchdown, leading the NFC to a win. He has also won the Bart Starr Award in 2004 for his off the field accomplishments in the Tampa Bay community.
