Barber took reps at safety on Tuesday in the Buccaneers' first voluntary offseason program. The Buccaneers could revisit the trial, coach Greg Schiano said.

"That’s one of those (experiments)," Schiano said, according to the Tampa Bay Times. "I think Ronde can certainly do it and did a good job today doing it. We’ll see. Again ... how do we get the best 11 on the field?"

After releasing Tanard Jackson last week, the Buccaneers have just four safeties on the roster, none of whom has been in the NFL for more than three years.

Schiano said the team also was considering adding a safety via the draft or free agency.
