Ronde Barber retires after 16 seasons with Bucs

Ronde Barber, Buccaneers CB for the past 16 years, retired today. This news isn't all that surprising, but it's still upsetting to say goodbye to one of the great players in our modern era.
In his career, Barber made 5 Pro Bowls and 3 First All Pro teams. In 2001, he led the league in interceptions. In 2006, he led the league in interceptions returned for touchdowns. His most celebrated achievement came in the 2002-2003 season, when he and the Buccaneers beat the Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII, 48-21. He didn't do much in these last few years, but that doesn't matter. He still deserves a spot in the Hall of Fame.
