During the Tuesday evening edition of Buccaneers Total Access on 620 WDAE, Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Ronde Barber announced a milestone that he will try to achieve during the remainder of his career.
With 12:09 on the clock in the second quarter, the five-time Pro Bowl CB recovered a punt blocked by linebacker Geno Hayes, and took it 31 yards for a touchdown. This score was the 14th of Barber's career. Already being in the 20/20 club for 20 interceptions and 20 sacks, Barber, 34, looks to take it a step farther by scoring 20 touchdowns before his career is up.
"I've been pretty closed about some of my goals, but one of my goals has been to be the all-time return leader in defensive touchdowns, and I'm two behind Rod Woodson and Darren Sharper," Barber said. "It would be nice. I've just got to get on more punt blocks and I definitely have to have some more fortuitous bounces to get to 20 scores."
The 13-year pro would surpass Deion Sanders' NFL record of 19 for defensive and return game touchdowns, if he were to accomplish his goal.
"That would be an all-time," said Barber. "I've got to get to work though. It's going to be hard to get six more scores."
