New York, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Former NFL linebacker Derrick Brooks was named an appeals officer on Friday.

Brooks, a 2014 Hall of Fame inductee, will hear player appeals of on-field discipline. He'll join former NFL player and coach Ted Cottrell for the 2014 season.

An 11-time Pro Bowl selection in 14 seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brooks has also served as president of the Arena League's Tampa Bay Storm since 2011.

"Derrick views this game with a very unique understanding as both a player and a team president," said NFL executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent. "His review of appeals will be informed by experience as a player and as an executive."

The announcement was made jointly by the NFL and NFL Players Association.

"Derrick was jointly selected by the players and the NFL and we expect he will bring expertise and professionalism to his role as an arbitration officer," said NFLPA senior director of player affairs and development Jason Belser. "We look forward to working with him."

Brooks replaces Matt Birk, who was named the NFL's director of football development earlier this month.
