Derrick Brooks Will Retire A Buc....

That is when he decides to retire, because this year he will still be the Captain of the Defense.
Derrick Brooks, the next Tampa Bay Buccaneer Hall of Famer and nine time Pro Bowler restructured his contract on Sunday.

This is great news for the Buccaneers and their fans. Besides Mike Alstott, who's future is uncertain, Derrick Brooks is the other Beloved Buccaneer by the fans.

Brooks reworked deal is believed to come with guaranteed money and an extension past the 2009 season.

According to Len Pasquarelli of ESPN

"With the Tampa Bay Bucs facing a twice-extended Sunday
deadline for being in compliance with the NFL's spending limit for 2006, nine-time Pro Bowl linebacker Derrick Brooks
restructured his contract to open up about $5 million in additional salary cap room.

The reworked deal, confirmed by agent Roosevelt Barnes on Sunday evening, still keeps Brooks well above the minimum salary for 2006. The restructuring also included a four-year contract extension, the details of which were not immediately available."
