Tennessee received a special guest on Tuesday — and he was looking quite dapper.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks showed up to visit the Vols wearing his gold NFL Hall of Fame jacket. Brooks was pictured visiting with coach Butch Jones, linebackers Darrin Kirkland, Jr. and Dillon Bates and defensive end/linebacker Curt Maggitt.

“It’s impactful,” Jones said of Brooks’ visit. “You are talking one of the greatest ever.”
Brooks played 14 seasons for the Bucs and was selected to 10 consecutive Pro Bowls while registering 1,698 career tackles. He was inducted into the NFL Hall of Fame in 2014.
