Ronde Barber ranks among the greatest cornerbacks of all time


Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber comes in ranked 22nd out of the top 31 corners of all time. Barber spent his entire 16-year career in a Bucs uniform and has the record for most consecutive games played in team history.

Barber started every game for Tampa Bay beginning in November 1999, until his retirement after the 2012 season. He finished his career with 47 interceptions and 28 career sacks, making him the only cornerback in NFL history to join the 40/20 club, 40 career interceptions, and 20 career sacks, and because of his natural ability to make plays, Barber scored an amazing 14 times on non-offensive plays, ranking him 4th all-time.

Barber has proven to be one of the most reliable cornerbacks of all-time, and one of the greatest Buccaneers to ever lace them up. This is his first year of eligibility into the Hall of Fame, and although in my book he’ll always be a first-ballot Hall of Famer, I just hope the voters feel the same.
