What they're saying about Brooks

Tony Dungy, via Twitter:

So proud of Derrick Brooks. NFL Hall of Fame. Congratulations.

Pat Yasinskas,

When I voted … for Warren Sapp as a candidate for the Professional Football Hall of Fame, I did so unenthusiastically. Don't get me wrong, I thought Sapp was a Hall of Fame football player. I just didn't think of him as a Hall of Fame person. Brooks is a Hall of Fame person. Through his lengthy career and since then, Brooks always has carried himself with class and dignity. I'm genuinely happy for Brooks.

Josh Katzowitz,

Brooks is one of the best outside linebackers of all time, and it would have been a shock if he wasn't elected on his first ballot.

Gregg Rosenthal,

He was the rock of the great Buccaneers' defense of the 2000s with his leadership and intelligence helping to define the weakside linebacker position in the Tampa 2 defense.
