TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers announced Tuesday that Derrick Brooks will be the next player added to the Buccaneer 'Ring of Honor.'

Brooks thanked the Glazer family for drafting him and coaches Tony Dungy and Lovie Smith.

" I am most thankful for my wife and all her support. Over the years, words can't describe it," he said.

The Bucs will honor Derrick Brooks at halftime during week 2 vs. Rams. After his name is revealed on Ring of Honor, the #55 jersey will be retired.

Derrick Brooks had one piece of advice for this week's NFL Draft 2014  selections, "Get your degree!" Brooks said.

Warren Sapp was inducted into the Ring of Honor last year and had his No. 99 jersey retired.
