As you most likely know by now, Derrick Brooks, the 11-time Pro Bowler, 9-time All-Pro linebacker who helped re-define that position on defense for 21st Century NFL players and defensive schemes, was announced as a member of the 2014 class of inductees to the Pro Football Hall of Fame last Saturday at the 3rd Annual NFL Honors in New York City. When he is officially inducted into the Hall in Canton, OH this August, he will go in as inductee #281, right on the heels of his former teammate in Tampa Bay, the great (and often controversial) Warren Sapp.

CBS Radio’s Jim Rome talked to Brooks about his induction into the Hall on his program earlier today, as well as what it means to Brooks to join such honored company, and his thoughts on everything that went on this past week in NYC in the lead-up to Super Bowl XLVIII.
