What About Ronde?March 5th, 2012
Money is flowing all over the NFL, along with heads rolling in New Orleans, and Joe keeps sniffing around looking for news on Ronde Barber.
Not a peep to be found.
Free agency kicks off in eight days, and Joe has to think the Bucs want a smooth resolution to the Barber situation at least a few days before that. No way the Bucs want Barber’s retiring announcement clashing with their own possible big free agent signing. If Ronde’s retiring, the man’s an icon that deserves his own moment.
If Barber is returning to Tampa Bay, that’s worth savoring, too.
Of course, there’s always a chance Barber won’t see eye to eye with Team Schiano and rockstar general manager Mark Dominik and will test the free agent waters. Barber wearing new colors would be difficult for Joe to stomach.
