Newest Member of Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ring of Honor to be Announced Tuesday


Update:

Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times has confirmed that it will be Derrick Brooks

 

Original:

The sixth member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Ring of Honor will be announced Tuesday, with Bucs legend Derrick Brooks the rumoured choice.

While the new member has yet to be confirmed, all signs, and logic, point to it being the former star linebacker.

Brooks will be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame later this year after an illustrious 14 year career in a Tampa Bay uniform.

The train of thought here, assuming it is Brooks, follows what the Bucs did with Warren Sapp last year. Sapp was elected into the Hall of Fame in 2013 as well as the Bucs Ring of Honor. His #99 jersey was also retired.

The four other members of the Ring of Honor are Lee Roy Selmon, Paul Gruber, Jimmie Giles, and coach John McKay.
