Ronde Barber: Richie Incognito Is “Not What He’s Been Portrayed To Be”
Former Bucs great and current TV analyst for the Buccaneers preseason Ronde Barber joined The Booger and Ryan Show to give his take on Richie Incognito coming in for a visit and what he saw on Saturday in Buffalo.
Barber said he knows for a fact that the Bucs have been looking around the league for guard help during the preseason, but they’re noncommittal on signing Incognito.
“They just want to take a look, see where he’s at personally,” Barber said of Incognito. “I’ve had a chance to meet (Incognito) a couple times, I think I know who he is as a person and he’s not what he’s been portrayed to be.”
Barber went on to say that people are jumping to conclusions by saying that Incognito has character concerns.
“People who want to jump to conclusions have a problem with his character. Until you have it straight from the horses mouth, don’t put character issues on a guy who doesn’t have character issues.”
Barber thinks if any team were to bring in Incognito, the Bucs are the team to do it.
“If he gets an opportunity I can’t think of a better place than here with Lovie.”
