Brooks was released by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season and, while he expressed interest in continuing his career, the 14-year veteran never signed with another team.

The nine-time All-Pro and 11-time Pro Bowl selection will make the announcement on his website,, today and will hold a press conference at Buccaneers team headquarters on Thursday at 1:30 p.m. ET.

Brooks played in every Bucs game from 1995-2008 and is considered a lock to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
