NFL rosters must be cut down to 53 men by this afternoon. Players must go through the waiver system before teams can sign them to a 10-man practice squad.
Barber left Auburn after his breakout sophomore season. The Alpharetta (Ga.) Milton product left the school for the draft with two years of eligibility left and went undrafted, before signing an undrafted free agent contract with Tampa Bay.
In 19 career games for the Tigers, Barber accumulated 1,071 rushing yards, 112 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns.
