Buccaneers fixture Ronde Barber retiring
 
Drew Brees' job just got a lot easier!!!
************************************************** *******

One of the longest-standing players in the NFL has decided to call it a career.

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Buccaneers defensive back Ronde Barber has decided to retire.

“I’ve had a better run than I ever could’ve dreamed of having,” Barber told Glazer.

One of the top two-way corners of his generation, the five-time Pro Bowler finishes his 16-year career with 47 interceptions

Of course, the Bucs sort of made his decision for him this offseason.

While he debated about his future, the Bucs signed Dashon Goldson to play the safety spot Barber occupied last year, and added Darrelle Revis and Johnthan Banks at corner, which likely left nothing more than a few snaps as a dime back for Barber if he had returned.
