TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will feature a special fan promotional offer aimed at honoring 2014 Ring of Honor inductee, Derrick Brooks, during the team’s Week 2 matchup against the St. Louis Rams. Every fan in attendance at the team’s Sept. 14th game will receive the special edition bobblehead.

Already boasting a long list of accolades – including first-ballot induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this year – Brooks becomes the first Buccaneer player since Mike Alstott in 2008 to have a bobblehead produced in his likeness. The bobblehead will add to Brooks’ special day as he is inducted into the prestigious Buccaneers Ring of Honor to join Buccaneer legends Lee Roy Selmon, John McKay, Jimmie Giles, Paul Gruber and Warren Sapp in a halftime ceremony and officially has his No. 55 jersey retired by the team.

“Derrick’s contributions to our franchise and the Tampa Bay area are too lengthy to list, and we are thrilled to be able to honor him with this special day and to thank him for all he has done during his time in our community,” said Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford. “We encourage all of our fans to come out and pack Raymond James Stadium for the Rams game as we honor one of the truly exceptional athletes to have worn a Buccaneers uniform. This bobblehead will be a one-of-a-kind keepsake for what promises to be a memorable day of celebration.”

Fans won’t want to miss their chance to secure one of the limited-edition figures, which will be distributed at all major entry points into the stadium (limit one per ticketed fan).
