During an interview with Booger McFarland and Rich Herrera on 98.7 CBS Tampa Bay, Tiki Barber indicated his brother Ronde wanted to suit up for a 17th NFL season.
“I’ve talked to him multiple times over the last month and a half and it’s been the same. He’s told me this is the best he’s felt after a season in many years. Obviously, [last year] he broke his forearm at the end of the year and there was some question on whether he would come back or Mark Dominik would want him back with the new coaching staff. But his veteran presence has been so valuable to that secondary.”
Ronde Barber recorded 70 tackles, one sack, one forced fumble and four interceptions while playing multiple positions in the Buccaneers secondary last season. Barber will turn 38 on April 7th.
