Has Ronde Barber’s fate been decided?

The Buccaneers met with veteran Ronde Barber last week and the two sides discussed plans for the future.

In depth 2013: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The 2012 season was full of ups and downs for Tampa Bay. Mike Freeman was great at times but then had stretches of futility. The run defense was as good as any in the league, but the pass defense was equally as bad.

NFL Rumors: Tampa Bay Buccaneers interested in Patriots QB Ryan Mallett?

Forget the rumors about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trading for CB Darrelle Revis, another name has entered the mix.
