Barber to Get $4 Mil for Playing in 2011

Fanhouse reports that Ronde Barber will make $4 mil in 2011, which should be his last season in the NFL at the age of 36.

Ronde Barber will make $4 million in 2011, presumably his last season in the NFL when he will be 36 years old. The St. Petersburg Times said the deal is one year for the cornerback, who is almost assuredly going to the Hall of Fame. It’s not too much to pay an aging corner, besides the fact he can still bump and run, Barber will get one more big paycheck because he will bring some veteran leadership to a defense still building. He will be on the corner opposite Aqib Talib. It is a fair deal for both sides because the Bucs do not have a starting corner waiting in the wings and they need to use their first round draft pick on a pass rushing specialist and they needed Barber as much as he wanted to get another season in before retiring.
