Barber: hyperbole or reality?



Cornerback Ronde Barber made a startling comment to Sports Illustrated's Peter King this week, saying the following:

"I would bet you that every player in the NFL knows someone who has been to a dogfight."

We're not sure whether Barber is being a wiseguy here or just speaking what he truly believes. I plan to ask him when the Bucs report to camp tomorrow in Celebration. This one could need a little clarification. Hard to believe that a blanket statement like that would apply to everyone in the NFL. But we're not naive enough to think that Michael Vick has the market cornered on dogfighting, either.

If Barber has anything to add, we'll let you know right here.
