Could Ronde Barber Make A Return To Corner?October 13th, 2012
So now the Bucs are in a pickle. Aqib Talib got poppped for popping Adderall, Anthony Gaitor in on the injured reserve/return list and Eric Wright is trying to come back from a head injury and always seems to be playing hurt.
So the next man up at corner appears to be Myron Lewis, who has yet to establish himself as an NFL cornerback the past three years.
Could graybeard Ronde Barber be making a comeback to corner?
While moving Barber to corner may create a hole at safety, fellow safety, rookie Mark Barron has proved he can handle himself quite nicely. Ahmad Black, when he has played, has done well.
Joe wouldn’t be shocked if, after the Chiefs game (there’s scant time to prepare for a new defensive backfield scheme in 24 hours with no practice), that Bucs coach Greg Schiano could use Barber at corner in some plays.
The Bucs have the worst pass defense in the league. Without Talib, it just got worse, with Dwayne Bowe and company in Tampa as Joe types this.
