TAMPA, Fla. — The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have a new member of their Ring of Honor: Ronde Barber.
- Ronde Barber helped Tampa Bay Bucs reach postseason 7 times
- His interception of McNabb in playoffs sparked Super Bowl run
- Defensive back was drafted out of Virginia before 1997 season
The longtime defensive back played 240 games, all with Tampa Bay, and helped the team win a Super Bowl and make six other postseason appearances.
The 44-year-old was drafted out of Virginia before the 1997 season.
Barber's official induction will take place at halftime of the September 22 game against the New York Giants.
Barber had one of the most important interceptions in team history when he picked off Donovan McNabb in 2003 to seal the NFC Championship Game over the Philadelphia Eagles. The Bucs then won the Super Bowl, beating the Oakland Raiders.
He had 47 interceptions in his career.
He joins other names in the Ring of Honor such as Lee Roy Selmon, Tony Dungy, Mike Alstott, Derrick Brooks, and Warren Sapp.
