It’s been a remarkable career for cornerback Ronde Barber. He has played in 202 straight games, and on Sunday he intercepted the 40th pass of his career. With that pick, Barber became the first player in history to have 40 interceptions and at least 25 sacks (26).

“I’m very pleased to talk about Ronde Barber,” said head coach Raheem Morris. “40 interceptions and 25 sacks. The NFL Hall of Fame called to today asking for his jersey and his gloves. It’s phenomenal and a feat we are very proud of and I’m sure he is as well.”

Barber’s 40th pick help close the deal on a 21-0 shutout against the San Francisco 49ers. After playing at such a high level for so long, Morris is hoping that his veteran corner eventually gets more in the Hall of Fame than just a jersey and gloves.

“Hopefully they ask for him sooner or later,” said Morris. “It’d be pretty cool. You guys know how I feel about Ronde. Very, very pleased with what he has been able to do and how he was able to play… he goes out there and does everything that is required and everything above and beyond at 34 [years old] – older than his head coach – it phenomenal to watch.”

    No reason we can't see 50/30. I'm sure he's already thinking that. Congrats Ronde!

    way to go Ronde, re-sign Ronde for two more years, his influence on this young team is irreplaceable

    So many great plays over a career that didn't start out so well back in 1997. It seems whenever there's a timely interception, tackle for loss, fumble recovery or sack, I get to use my saying, "it's always Rhonde"

    Way to go Ronde. So many great plays over the yrs. I will always remember the interception in Philly during the NFC championship game. You sealed the deal. without you McNabb would have surely scored and we would have been sent home.

    Ronde has reinvented the position and what he has accomplished is unlikely to be matched for a long time because they don't "teach" corners to do what he does. Leadership. Stability. Endurance. Character. I'm sure yoiu can add to this decription.

    I hope this seals his legacy for the HOF. He epitomizes all that I love about football. Classy guy. Great player. Good family man.

    I'd hope it'd be more than Warren and Derrick will be on the stage, if we're lucky canton will be gettin' a lot more Buc's players. I'd say Lynch had a great career at safety.

    A lot of folks are impressed by Barber's stats thinking he is the first corner to log 40/25. But he is THE FIRST PLAYER EVER to get to 40/25. No linebacker, corner or safety, on any team, ever. Wow. Congrats, Ronde. Warren and Derrick will be happy when you join them on stage in Canton
