TAMPA --

Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Ronde Barber is a third of the way to earning his sixth Pro Bowl berth.

Barber, who moved from cornerback to safety in this, his 16th NFL season, has won the fan voting portion of the NFC Pro Bowl balloting at his new position, the Bucs announced. He finished with 121,031 votes.

 Barber has been leading the balloting at free safety for weeks, but to make it all the way back to Hawaii he will also have to win the vote of NFL players and coaches.

 Those ballots will be cast today, with the announcement of the winners coming Wednesday during an NFL Network special.

Peyton Manning of the Denver Broncos leads all vote-getters (993,045), followed by Tom Brady of the New England Patriots (908,099), Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (829,591) and Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (828,225).

The Pro Bowl will be played Jan. 27 at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

     Great to hear, but the remaining 2/3 may be tough... Would be AWSOME if he pulled it off. If the rest of the voting hasn't happened yet, a couple picks Sunday would help!!

NFL.com posted 5 or 6 of their analyst's probowl ballets and I believe all of them voted for Ronde.

So that is a good sign.

I would love to see him make it but  will hate to see him get toasted in the All-Star game. But then again who isn't in those high scoring, no defensive type of games?

Ronde has gotten roasted in the pro bowl before, and in his prime too. Then again like you said, who hasn't?

Would love to see Ronde get into the Pro Bowl.  It is a popularity contest, and it affirms Barbers status as a league great.
