Buccaneers cornerback and safety Ronde Barber has decided to retire, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.

The five-time Pro Bowl pick was selected by the Bucs in the third round of the 1997 NFL Draft and played his entire career in Tampa.

Barber, the twin brother of former Giants running back Tiki Barber, was expected to see less playing time in 2013 after the Bucs signed free agent safety Dashon Goldson. The Bucs also acquired Darrelle Revis and Johnthan Banks at cornerback.

Barber finishes his NFL career with 28 sacks and 47 interceptions including eight returned for touchdowns.

"I've had a better run than I ever could've dreamed of having," he told Glazer.
