Barber Looking to be a Leader with Younger Bucs

Buccaneers CB Ronde Barber, discussing the need for younger players to step up and become leaders, as quoted in the Sarasota Herald Tribune:

“I talked to ‘Rah’ (first-year head coach Raheem Morris) a lot this offseason, and one of the things we got out of it is that new leaders need to emerge. In ’96, ’97, really ’95, too, when those guys started to emerge as leaders, there were veteran guys here. But they took over by their play. … That’s got to happen now, too. I’d love to lead this ship and hold the till by myself, but that’s not going to happen. Barrett (Ruud) has got to step up, Gaines Adams has got to step up and be a leader. Earnest (Graham), whoever our quarterback is … not just me. I was a leader by example for a lot of years. There’s nothing I can tell them. Go do your job. It’ll present itself.”
