    Another solid cost effective move. Secure your own players first. Then free agency. Then draft.

    Bucs are doing well so far.

    Im happy for the re-sign but they could’ve gave him 1 million.

    The Bucs are doing a great job locking in the core players of a 5-11 season .

    Barber is a solid running back and Bucs signed him for peanuts. Hes worth every penny of that contract.

          My son attends Auburn. After Big Wins, the chant goes from War Eagle to War Damn Eagle! Learned that first hand at the win this past season vs. Georgia. It’s all good!

    He is not likely to become the next Le’Veon Bell, but he may become a very good starter. They should try to sign a player like him for five years at about two million per year with incentives that could triple his pay in any year if he meets incentives. Even if it does not work out, with two years guaranteed, they only have four million dead cap, and he has a decent set up for a long time if he is wise with his money. And, any/every year he really plays big, he brings in a bonanza of six million which is still a bargain for the team.

    I think they should’ve included incentives like:

    If he wins the starting RB job it increases
    Certain # of TD’s it increases, etc…

    Give him something more to play for, cause at this point, he makes it though training camp injury free, but a drafted rookie RB or FA RB takes the starting job, he just coasts the season on the bench, stays healthy and makes the same $, to maybe leave next year.

    I’d rather see if there’s more in the tank and give him some incentives to try and reach.

    I actually feel the same about every players contact.

      True… I think he’s earned the shot to make some good money. Barber is a grinder who waited patiently and put in work until his number was called…then he actually showed up to play! Which is more than can be said for the rest of our RB stable last year
