Bucs & Barber Have Yet To MeetMarch 6th, 2013
The free-agency bell rings in seven days and legions of Bucs fans are waiting to learn the fate of Bucs icon Ronde Barber. Will he return for his 17th season with Tampa Bay and extend his NFL ironman streak?
There is no answer. Joe has learned that the annual sit-down between Barber and the Bucs’ brass has yet to happen but will soon. Barber also has not indicated a desire to retire. Joe’s been monitoring Tiki Barber’s national radio and Tiki has implied Barber is eager to meet. Is that a sign he wants to keep playing?
Joe will have an X’s and O’s take on Barber later this morning, which might shock some fans and could be a key to how the Bucs approach Barber at their meeting.
