Ronde Barber Returns To Bucs For 16th Season

Ronde Barber will make it 16 seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. According to Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com, Barber and the Bucs agreed to a one-year contract. Barber was originally drafted by the team in the third round of the 1997 NFL draft. Incredible run for him that will last one more year.

Retirement was obviously an option that a lot of people speculated on following the season, but the Bucs told Barber last week that they want him back. New head coach Greg Schiano was expected to sit down with Barber sometime after he was hired.

Barber is coming off of an injury after fracturing his forearm in Week 17, but he should be good to go for OTAs.

The Bucs free agency has been highlighted by more than a few dollars spent, including a few on Vincent Jackson and Carl Nicks.
