Ronde Barber plans to work in TV, but he’s not saying where


At his formal retirement press conference in Tampa today, longtime Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber confirmed that he plans to work in television this season. But he wouldn’t say which network he plans to work for.

“I’m not ready to say what I’m doing or where I’m going,” Barber said. “But, yes, I’ll be somewhere. Me and my manager have had a plan for a lot of years, met with guys in the offseason for the past three or four years. You’ve seen my mug on TV. I enjoy doing it. You’ll know soon enough.”

Barber also said he believes the team he’s leaving behind is well on its way to building a title contender, although he acknowledged that he’d have mixed emotions if they won a Super Bowl the year after he retired.

“There’s no reason they shouldn’t be successful. I expect them to. Now, I’ll be pissed if they do it this year, probably,” Barber said.

Ronde’s twin brother knows just how that feels.

    I shouldn’t group them together, but Tiki wasn’t too good on TV. So I don’t expect much out of Ronde.

    Please go to either the NFL Network or NBC, Ronde. Please don’t make me try to watch ESPN or *shudder* CBS.

    It would be funny if NBC hired him for the SNF pre-game show.

    They should do a Ronde vs. Tiki show. Since everyone knows Tiki has a load mouth and Ronde is reserved!

    Words of advice from brother Tiki…. “Ronde, just make sure you don’t suck at it like I did and whatever you do dont hang out with production assistants!”

    On Sirius NFL Radio a few years back, The barber twins show was one of the best shows on there.
    Love to hear them again

    Ronde always handled himself much better then Tiki.

    Ronde loved the game & it showed.

    Tiki loves Tiki & it shows.

    That is the difference between the two of them wrapped in a bow. I wish Ronde tons of success!

    He’s going to “The mothership” as Dan patrick likes to call it.

    Anywhere but ESPN, I cant stand their drivel.
    NBC or NFL Network

  13. mazblast says: May 9, 2013 5:25 PM

    Please use him as a permanent replacement for any one or two of the following drivelmeisters–Marino, Esiason, Johnson, Long, Bradshaw, or Collinsworth.

    As long as it is not ESPN. I swear they would ruin this guy. He should join NBC, NFLN or yes, replace one of the guys from CBS/FOX–he would be much better than most of them anyways.
