Q: Ronde Barber is a probably Hall of Famer. How about the Bucs add him as a coach and get him to put on some workshops in technique, both man coverage and blitzing technique? I don't think he's ready to retire yet but he could be a good mentor for younger players. Also, it wouldn't hurt to get his input in evaluating perspective draft picks or free agents.

A: I think Ronde has another year or two in him, but he'll decide somewhere around the first of February or maybe a little later what his next step is. Not sure he really wants to be a coach. My bet is that he's headed for TV either as a studio or game-day analyst. And if he returns, rest assured that he will do plenty of coaching. He is a coach on the field and a mentor for sure.
