Tampa Bay Buccaneers legends know that Derrick Brooks and the legacy he left behind, is something that cannot be denied.

When you line up famous players like Ronde Barber, Warren Sapp, John Lynch and Simeon Rice, you get an inside look into what it was like to play with Brooks.

The NFL posted a video from Saturday’s Hall of Fame broadcast and the guys talked about Brooks’ experience. Ronde Barber spoke out about what it was like working with Brooks. One thing that Barber pointed out is that Brooks has a very quiet, stoic personality.

“When I got there in ’97, Derrick had been there a couple years with Sapp and Lynch, and he said yeah, he was a stoic guy. He was just a natural leader just because of his demeanor and obviously his play on the field.”

Brooks was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last weekend and each of these legends agree that he deserves the honor.
