— The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will reveal the name of the latest player to be added to their Ring of Honor during a ceremony this afternoon at One Buc Place, the team announced Friday.

This year's inductee will be the sixth member to have his name placed on the upper deck fašade at Raymond James Stadium, joining former coach John McKay, defensive end Lee Roy Selmon, tight end Jimmie Giles, tackle Paul Gruber and defensive tackle Warren Sapp.

Sapp was inducted into the Ring of Honor and had his No. 99 jersey retired by the team a year ago, the same year he was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame as a first-ballot candidate.

Former Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this past winter, but the team has not said whether he will be the former Bucs great added to the Ring of Honor this year.

This year's Ring of Honor inductee will be enshrined during halftime of a home game, but the date of that game has not been announced.
