Ronde Barber Will Be Missed off the Field More Than on in 2013

Ronde Barber, the last bastion of defensive prowess from the golden era of Tampa Bay Buccaneers football, told Fox Sports’ NFL analyst Jay Glazer Wednesday that he is officially retiring.

Barber was drafted in the third round of the 1997 NFL draft by the Buccaneers and spent 16 seasons in a pewter jersey, pulling down 47 interceptions while playing in 241 games. The 38-year-old was selected to five Pro Bowls and was the last remaining member of the 2002 Super Bowl-winning Buccaneers with the team.
