NFL career

Barber was drafted in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the University of Virginia. His brother Tiki was also drafted the same year, but went a round earlier than Ronde to the New York Giants. In his first season with the Bucs, Barber was unable to force his way into the starting lineup and spent most of his playing time on special teams, while making rare appearances in the secondary as he started only one game in the 1997 season. However, Barber had clearly made an impression on the then Bucs Head Coach Tony Dungy, and in his second season Barber started all 16 games of the season, recording 81 tackles, 3 sacks, and 2 interceptions. On November 25, 2007, he took the record from Donnie Abraham for the most interceptions in Buccaneers team history by catching his 32nd against the Washington Redskins.
