Derrick Brooks still wants to play in 2009

Linebacker Derrick Brooks says he’ll play in ’09
By BRENT KALLESTAD, Associated Press Writer
Jun 17, 6:02 pm EDT

Buzz up! PrintTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)—Free agent Derrick Brooks(notes) said Wednesday he plans to play in the NFL this fall and possibly even return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, a team he led to a Super Bowl victory.

The NFL Defensive Player of the Year when Tampa Bay won the Super Bowl after the 2002 season, Brooks was among five players the Bucs cut in a February purge that included his former Florida State teammate, Warrick Dunn(notes).

“I could still be a Buccaneer,” Brooks said. “Stranger things that have happened. Teams are talking to me so I’m going to make sure I continue to stay in shape.”

Although he turned 36 in April, Brooks said he’s still in top physical condition.

One of only four players voted to 10 consecutive Pro Bowls, Brooks also has been a standout off the field. He was the co-winner of the 2000 NFL Man of the Year award, given to the player who combines skill on the field with good work off it.

A member of the board of trustees at Florida State, the Pensacola native was in Tallahassee on Wednesday for a meeting on a three-year budget for the school.

And while he looked more the part of a businessman, his desire to get back into pads and a helmet was evident.

“My play speaks for itself,” said Brooks, who had 73 tackles last season with a season high 10 in a midseason win over the Kansas City Chiefs. “I’ve always taken that approach.”

Brooks, who is two tackles short of 1,700 in his NFL career, believes he’s still among the most productive linebackers in the league.

And if that call from the NFL doesn’t come?

“I’ll do the best to prepare for that,” Brooks said. “My plan is to play but if God plans for me not to play, then I’m ready to accept that too.”

actually he is one of my favorite LBs of all time, I wouldn't be opposed to it. Why not we already have a couple of old former great LBs why not bring in 1 more.

Does he have experience in a 3-4? I imagine he wants to play for a team a little more competitive than most people expect us to be.

Vrabel
Johnson
Thomas
Williams-Beisel-Belcher-mays-Brooks?


We still don't know who's gonna play the OLB on the backside, do we?

DO IT!!! The man was brilliant here in tampa, all the way through the last year. The only reason he isn't here is cause he didnt fit into the new coaches plan.
