Cato June was also released. Might be worth a look.

Man that's going to be weird seeing the Bucs W/O Brooks. Guy has been an absolute all-pro on and off the field.

Brooks and Ronde Barber were two of my favorite players when I was growing up.

Those guys are class acts. Brooks next stop is surely the Hall of Fame is he decides to hang it up.

June is only 29. Why did he drop off so much from Indy to TB?

Dunn had a decent season for them running the ball behind Graham. I wonder why they got rid of him.

If not mistaken, June played SLB in tampa versus WLB in Indy.

There aren't a lot of players you can say were better in their prime than Derrick Brooks. That guy was an animal in his time.

He is small for a LB and he did play WLB for Indy.

I think Brooks will hang it up at this point and I like June, but I don't know if we are going to make a run at him. If were not going to draft a LB then I say we test the waters with him.

Brooks will go down as one the all time greats. In his time there few if any in his league. The guy could do it all, sideline to sideline, balls to the wall.

GM said they are wanting to get younger but I think it's the head coach wanting some room to draft his own.

IMO he was better than Ray Lewis.

They play different positions but I was always turned off by the fact that Lewis got so much hype (deservedly) and Brooks got very little (undeservedly).

Remember the year Brooks was picking off passes and returning them for TDs?

I use to do a FF w/D players, Brooks was always my first pick. He did it all.
