Barber Says Organization Will “Try To Win”April 4th, 2012
It was a bizarre choice of words today by Ronde Barber after stating a minute or so earlier that the Bucs’ free agent signings had little to do with his decision to return in 2012.
“When I felt like that this team was going to make a push and try to win, that helped me make my decision to come back,” Barber said.
The comment begged the question, ‘Ronde, don’t the Bucs try to win every year?’
Regardless, Joe can’t quibble if Barber wasn’t eager to jump on a massive 2012 rebuilding project that didn’t include filling holes in free agency. Clearly, Barber can see the talented teams in the NFC South and knows the Bucs will need a great record to make the playoffs.
Barber went on to say he doesn’t know what his role will be and coyly said he’s too small to play safety.
