The Bucs linebackers are also a pretty experienced group. The leader of the linebacking core is Derrick Brooks who is playing in his 13th season and has 40 tackles. He also has the best of all the United Way commercials:
The Buccaneers middle linebacker is Barrett Rudd who is a 3rd year player out of Nebraska. He has 51 tackles, 1 INT and 2 fumble recoveries on the year. Their other outside linebacker is former Indianapolis Colt Cato June. He has 22 tackles and 1 INT on the season.
Their linebacking core is very similar to that of the Indianapolis Colts. They are all guys with speed that fly to the ball and are good in pass coverage.
