Rond Takes High Road Regarding Possibility He Was Nudged Out
The Buccaneers at all times made it clear that they wanted cornerback Rond Barber to return for a 17th season. And that they were in no hurry whatsoever for him to make a decision.
And then as Barber took his time to make a decision, the Buccaneers signed safety Dashon Goldson in free agency, traded for cornerback Darrelle Revis, reworked the contract of cornerback Eric Wright, and drafted cornerback Jonathan Banks in round two.
