Tiki Barber went straight from the gridiron to television and now his brother is going to give it a shot.
With any luck, Ronde Barber will have more staying power in his second career than his twin brother did.
The Tampa Tribune reports the former Buccaneers cornerback, who opted to retire after the franchise made a series of moves that virtually ensured he would no longer be a starter, will join the team’s preseason television broadcasts on WFLA.
Barber will also work for Fox Sports this coming season as an analyst on broadcasts and on the new Fox Sports 1.
