Barber's twin brother, Tiki, who played running back for the Giants, had a post on his Twitter account that read: "Congrats & happy for my twin, Ronde, who's hanging up the cleats!"

Ronde played cornerback for the Bucs for 15 seasons, before moving to safety last year.

Barber is a five-time Pro Bowler, and Super Bowl champion.  Ronde will leave as Tampa Bay's all-time leader for interceptions with 47.  He also scored eight touchdowns and had 28 sacks in 241 games.
