Linebacker Derrick Brooks will donate $1,000 for each tackle he makes in today's game to Hurricane Ivan relief efforts.
Brooks, who is from Pensacola, and the Bucs also will collect monetary donations at each of the four entry gates and the two club entrances to Raymond James Stadium, which will open at 2:05 p.m.
"This is personal," Brooks said. "Through my foundation, I know where the money is going. I'm working with various organizations in Pensacola. I'm reaching out to the people of our town. I'm bringing it to our team, my teammates; we are going to try to do all we can."
