and so let the Leonard Johnson era begin!

Ronde was a great player for the Bucs. He was the face of that franchise for such a long time, it sucks to see a guy like him retire.

He'll absolutely make his way to Canton. I hope he enjoys his life after football!

It's not often a guy plays 15+ seasons with the same team. I'm glad he was able to walk away rather than be forced out. I'll be in Canton for his induction.

Wish him all the best in retirement. He truly had one of the more remarkable careers in the history of the NFL. Great guy through and through.

I can watch this over and over and over again. Easily the most iconic play of our franchise.

You will be missed, Ronde.

How many players [besides specialists] are even left in the NFL who were active in the 90s? I can only count 6: Tony Gonzalez, Peyton Manning, Matt Hasselbeck, Antoine Winfield, Champ Bailey and London Fletcher.

Charles Woodson should be on a roster a few weeks before TC starts.

I don't see how it's arguable whether or not he is a hall of famer. The only thing that he really has to worry about is whether or not he'll be first ballot depending on the class he's in.

I still feel that 02 Bucs defense gets overshadowed by the Ravens in the 2000s because of how close they were in proximity and that the Bucs didn't have a big enough name to always get media attention when their players are good.

Wish he could of signed 1 more year..
Really going to miss him....what a great career he had.

Just by looking at him he is not too big or fast by any means. Is not an athletic freak. Having said that he NEVER got hurt, even at an old age and always found ways to make plays and was extremely reliable and got the job done. On top of that he was a great invividual to be around. Good luck to him in retirement and I really hope to see him in HOF.

Absolutely outstanding player and person. One of my favourite non-Titans of all time. Hope all is well in his future endeavours.

Peyton Manning
Randy Moss (free agent)
Charles Woodson (free agent)
Charlie Batch (free agent, I think)
London Fletcher (free agent, I think)
Tony Gonzalez
Vonnie Holliday (free agent, I think)
Champ Bailey
Mike Peterson (free agent, I think)
Takeo Spikes (free agent)
Antoine Winfield
Keith Brooking (free agent)
Matt Hasselbeck
Brandon Stokley (free agent)

No players left that were drafted before 1997 that are position players. No positional players left from the original NFL Blitz Arcade. There are players that are still playing from NFL Blitz '99, and 2000.

I was just thinking about how much more nasty the Bucs' secondary would be if Barber re-signed and stayed for one more year even as a backup to try to go for one more Super Bowl now that the team looks like it could be a playoff contender again. He could only help but I guess he thought it was time.

Safe to say #20 will be retired and he'll be in the HOF. Great player. Too bad we lost Ray Lewis and now Ronde Barber in the same offseason. Another great goes.

I guess I'm a little surprised that he retired even with the new CB additions in the offseason. I figured he would give it one more shot in a reduced role that wouldn't take a toll on his body. Still he knew when it was time to call it a terrific career and he went out on his terms which is nice to see. One of the greatest Bucs of all time. Just a matter of when he'll be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
