    Rhode Barber should be a guy Dallas looks at this offseason. I know he is 37 but he knows the Tampa 2 better than any player on the NFL today and we need a safety that can play the scheme.

    No thanks I will pass. I think it is important to build a soild young team and not go after "old" players because they know the system. We will only set ourselves back because the FO will say oh well we are set at that position now. We can't have that we need to get a young safety in the 1st or 2nd rd. We haven't drafted a safety high in years and it's been a problem it seems like every year. So know I think we should pass and let the coaches coach and the players learn and play.

    Ronde won't play for another team.

    If he's waived, he'll retire I'm sure.

    He may retire anyway.

    He'll probably just re-sign with Tampa. He's been their franchise for 15 years and already has a Super Bowl ring so I could see him just riding off into the sunset there like Reggie Wayne with the Colts.

    The guy has had an amazing career though...he hasn't missed a game in 13 straight seasons, that is incredible

    It would be great to have him help out at camp if he wants to break in coaching.

    Finally someone suggests getting a safety! Lets get out there and sign a 37 year old free safety to start on our defense! Maybe Favre wants to play cornerback for us too.

    I don't know if he has anything left in the Tank or not but I'll tell you this, I think Barber would be a heck of a DB coach.

    Barber would be an upgrade than anything we have now, even at his current age. I know it would be a 1-2 year band-aid, but that would give the team time to get some decent safeties.

    Won't happen though.

    This people want to talk about his age without talking about his play. This past season he played FS and was very good, knows the system and it wony be like a big contract. We could get him on a one or two year deal.

    Might be 37 but he is still better than sensy or church

    He was the Bucs FS last year. He was moved from corner.
