Regardless of your team, we all can band together and appreciate Ronde Barber. A great defender, a HOFer and a true lover of the sport.

Unless you're a Raiders fan ;)

Has he signed with the Today Show?

Great player.

Buc fans were lucky to have a lifer like him.

Now all he has to do is play the waiting game until the Hall comes a calling.

Gonna miss watching the dude play. As smart as he is, and as much as he seems to understand the defensive backfield, I hope he can translate that into teaching and become a coach.

Now the question is this: Who gets into the Hall of Fame first, if at all? Ronde or Tiki?

I think Ronde may wind up in there sooner.

Ronde. I don't think Tiki will get inducted at all.

It also nice to see that he does it on his own and the Bucs haven't messed up like what they did to Brooks this time.

I don't think he was close to Ronde, but he wasn't average. He was a pretty good back for the Giants for a while.

He has been in contention for the Hall of Fame since 2012, so we may see him in one day.

Jerome is not even a lock for HOF, not with Goodell's emphasis on scoring and the wide open passing game. Jerome should be in someday and his numbers are much better than Tiki, 13,600 vs 10,500 94 TDs vs 67 TDs and 6 time Pro Bowl vs 3 time Pro Bowl, not to mention Bettis has one ring. Tiki is IMO unlikely to get in.
