Brooks Hawaii-bound -- again
Derrick Brooks is going to the Pro Bowl after all.
The Bucs linebacker was named Tuesday as a replacement on the NFC roster in place of injured Bears linebacker Lance Briggs.
Brooks was a first alternate to the game, but it appeared his services wouldn't be needed until Briggs suffered a minor injury in Sunday's Super Bowl.
Brooks extends his streak of Pro Bowl selections to 10. That ties him with Mike Singletary and Lawrence Taylor for the second-most among linebackers in NFL history. Junior Seau went to 12 Pro Bowls with San Diego.
Brooks finished the 2006 season with a team-best 150 tackles and three interceptions, including one returned for a touchdown. He will join cornerback Ronde Barber and long snapper Dave Moore in Saturday's game in Honolulu.
