    I miss this guy. I think we pulled the trigger on that trade too soon. Sometimes a change of position can make a marginal player turn into a beast. We could use his fumble making abilities right about now.

    seat26, we already had a weak side LB who was better that Barron in LeVonte David. We drafted him to play safety not a LB.
    Maybe Barron should feel disrespected by the Rams since they moved him out of the position of safety which they traded him for.
    The fact is, is that Barron can’t cover well enough to play safety. Perhaps Barron should have a long talk to God about his coverage abilities or lack thereof.

      What about SAM LB? I couldn’t see Lansanah being a ton better or whoever we had at that time and right now he could certainly play just as well as Daryl Smith but a lot faster. I hated letting him go because we missed on Kuechly to grab him. He was never a good safety but we must have seen something to draft him. Plus didnt we replace him at safety with Dashaun Goldson?

    Hated the draft pick. Maybe the most bone head pick we ever did. After Bo Jackson of course. Wasn’t Kieckly on the board at that time? Glad he’s gone.

      Yes he was Chett. I too wasn’t thrilled with the choice of a Safety that high. As I recall most thought we were going to draft CB Morris Claiborne (he of the 4 score Wonderlic test). Barron is just another player who suffered the fate of the Scubog game jersey. Twice when Revis (another victim) took his #24. Both jerseys hang on the left (obsolete and too small) side of my Bucs attire closet.
