Ronde Barber makes it official with Bucs

National Football Post

With the trial for cornerback Aqib Talib pushed back to this summer the Tampa Bay Buccaneers couldn’t afford to possibly lose both starters.

That had to be one factor that played a role in the return of 16-year veteran Ronde Barber, who officially signed a one-year contract today, according to the club.

Talib faces charges of assault with a deadly weapon in Texas and there is always the possibility the NFL will sanction him even if the courts do not. The Bucs have already added veteran cornerback Eric Wright in free agency and could look to draft one.

The team also announced offensive tackle Demar Dotson, a restricted free agent, has agreed to a two-year contract. The former college basketball player has developed nicely and now the key is whether or not his career can take off in the next two years.
