He's the last of my favorite bunch of Bucs to roll through Tampa.

He is a Hall of Fame lock in my opinion. Am I right?

He's the only player in NFL history to have 40 career interceptions and 25 sacks.

Six of those INT's came off Aaron Brooks. Barber had AB's number for sure, the first time they played each other in the pros, he picked him off 3 times. One of them went for a touchdown. I'm sure that wasn't uncommon when they practiced against each other in college at Virginia.


Solid career. Liked him a lot more than his brother.

One of the greats who I don't ever remember anything being said bad about him in the press. Also no arrest that I can think of.

Saw this coming. The writing was on the wall. He just turned 38, and with the move to free safety last season, and off season signings, it was bound to happen.

Remember when he was at UVA. Hell of a player and hell of a career.

I think he was there when they upset Florida State in 95. Makes me feel old.
