TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Cornerback Ronde Barber is returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for his 16th NFL season.
Barber signed a one-year contract Wednesday to come back to the only team he’s played for. He started 16 games last season for the Bucs, starting every game since Week 10 in 1999 — the longest active streak in the NFL. Barber has 43 career interceptions and 27 career sacks, making him the only player in NFL history with 40 or more picks and 25 or more sacks in a career.
He is a three-time All-Pro and won a Super Bowl at the end of the 2002 season.
Tampa Bay also re-signed restricted free agent tackle Demar Dotson to a two-year contract.
