    Linebacker Derrick Brooks, one of the greatest players in Tampa Bay Buccaneers history, was told Wednesday he will be released before the start of free agency along with four other veterans.

    Brooks is an 11-time Pro Bowler and a potential Hall of Famer. Also informed of their impending releases were wide receivers Joey Galloway and Ike Hilliard, halfback Warrick Dunn and linebacker Cato June.

    Smart moves. Brooks and June's decline really heightened Tampa's collapse defensively.

    Maybe...but a lot of people think the Bucs are cutting expenses preparatory to the Glazers trying to sell the team.

    You're right in your wording however.
    Until you're in you ARE a POTENTIAL inductee.

    Petty point to call you out on.

    Radio shows are having a melt down over here.
    All the Buc fans PO'd at the team management.
    Many fans, no matter how many times you try explain it to them, will simply never get how the NFL works with teams having to make decisions based on Salary Cap implications.

    The Bucs have made a decision to rebuild and tough moves needed to be made for the future success of the franchise.
