The NFL has started naming its NFL 100 All-Time Team. Over a 6 week period starting back on November 22nd Rich Eisen, Bill Belichick and Chris Collingsworth will be joined by special guests to name the top 100 players and 10 coaches who will be deemed the greatest at their respective positions.

So, are there any Buccaneers on this list? The answer is yes! First up, Derrick Brooks! Brooks in one of 12 LBs to make the list. Not surprising to Buccaneers fans as Derrick Brooks is a house hold name.

The defensive end position is one of great history with so many greats to have played the position. So when the very first draft pick in your organization’s history makes this list it’s very impressive. Impressive is exactly how I would describe watching Lee Roy Selmon play.
