Tampa, FL-- Bucs cornerback Ronde Barber said he's returning to the team for his 16th season.
The 36-year-old tweeted late this afternoon, "I'm pleased to announce that I'll be back for my 16th season as a Buccaneer. Coach Schiano, Mark Dominik and the Glazer family have been terrific throughout the process. I'm really excited about the direction of the team, the moves we've made, and I can't wait to get back to work."
Barber signed a one-year contract. Dominik said recently that he and Schiano had met with Barber, and told him the team was ready to welcome him back.
