@JayGlazer Got off the phone w Ronde Barber. Told me he is officially retiring. "I've had a better run than I could've dreamed of having"


I hope this isn't true, but all signs point to it. No real role left for Ronde so it makes sense. Ill miss #20, ill be there when you go to canton

This is a sad day. There is no doubt that he has lost a couple steps and with Revis/Goldson he wouldn't have been a starter, but he could still get the job done. He was pretty damn good last season. At least he got to leave on his own terms. Thanks for the memories, #20.

Please come back and coach! Please!!! Crying or Very sad

Sadly from everything I hear is that he won't ever. Hours are too grueling, and if he wanted to stay around football he would play.

Here here for our last remaining Super Bowl piece. It truly is a new era in Tampa, lets hope we can find a player half the man that Ronde is. I always enjoyed listening to him speak, and will never forget what he did and what he stood for.

Massively underrated his entire career. His numbers don't even do justice for what he did on and off the football field.

I know any Buc fan will never forget the pick 6 in the NFC championship game. Brings tears of joy to my eyes, I remember running through my house screaming when he picked it. Man, I'm gonna miss you Ronde

Best play in Buc history. Get chills just thinking about it.

Oh and wanna add I personally don't see it as a sad day. Dude got to go out on his terms. Not being pushed out or traded or cut or injuried.

Very few get to stay with a team their entire career, play for a loooong time, and then retire when they are ready to be done.

Nothing but positive memories with Ronde. I still believe he made the greatest play in Buc history, or at the least, tied with Joe Jurevicius. Sad just isn't the way I feel. Thankful and happy for all he contributed to this franchise.

I can't wait to see Barber and Brooks get into the Hall of Fame, then we can retire the numbers 20 and 55.

I wish he would have stayed one more year. I feel like this is the year we make a run at the playoffs and it would have been nice for Rinse to be apart of it.

For all the players on those great teams that first attracted me to the Buccaneers, Barber and Brooks are the two that will always be dearest to my heart. All good things must come to an end, and Ronde's career is no exception. He will be missed, and I hope he enjoys his retirement.
