((RONDE BARBER/TAMPA BAY CORNERBACK:HE'S DONE MORE THAN ANYONE CAN ASK FOR AT VIRGINIA I THINK HE WILL MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION, I THINK HE AND TERRY WILL MAKE THE RIGHT DECISION ON HIS FUTURE, HOPEFULLY IT WILL BE THE RIGHT ONE FOR THE PROGRAM. I'M NOT SURE WHICH ONE IT WILL BE, BUT I WILL SUPPORT WHICH EVER ONE IT IS. IT MIGHT BE THE RIGHT TIME. WHO AM I TO SAY, I'VE BEEN OUT OF THE PROGRAM FOUR YEARS. DO YOU WANT TO GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL OR WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO. I THINK GEORGE, HE'LL DECIDE. I THINK GEORGE CAN HANDLE THAT DECISION. ))
