Barber says solid fundamentals key to longevity

Joe Frollo Thu, 05/16/2013 - 9:59am

Ronde Barber did plenty during his 16-year NFL career to merit consideration for the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

A three-time All-Pro selection, Barber is the only player in NFL history to have at least 40 career interceptions and 20 career sacks.

He’s a member of the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team and helped the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win Super Bowl XXXVII.

But for Barber – like all the young football players out there who watched him – the thing he enjoyed most about his career is that he was able to stay on the field and help his team.
