Ronde Barber Joins Fox Sports As NFL Analyst

Ronde Barber, who retired earlier this month after a sterling 16-year NFL career with the Tampa Bay Bucs, has already landed a TV job. Hes headed to Fox Sports.

Barbers agent, Mark Lepselter, confirmed the Fox deal to TheBigLead.com. Ronde is excited to be joining the network, he said. Lepselter wouldnt elaborate on Barbers role at Fox.

Fox Sports is rolling out its new TV channel, Fox Sports 1, in August, and its safe to assume well see Barber on various programs as an NFL analyst. Will he be in the booth for football games on Fox this fall? Will they start him out on the sideline?

Last week, it was reported Fox was closing in on two other former NFL players, Donovan McNabb and Trevor Pryce. It seems pretty clear Foxs first order of business with the new network is to push the NFL and soccer. Americas No. 1 sport and the worlds No. 1 sport.
