Tiki Barber plans to end his retirement

Posted by Mike Florio on March 8, 2011, 2:30 PM EST

When we first saw this one, we checked the calendar to make sure it wasn’t April 1.

Running back Tiki Barber, who retired after the 2006 to strike while the media iron was hot, has decided to return to the game after four years away from it, is returning to football.

Barber’s agent, Mark Lepselter, has disclosed on Twitter that Barber “has filed the papers with the NFL to officially come out of retirement.” (Reached for comment via text, Lepselter confirmed to PFT that the announcement is legit.)

Lepselter tells Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com that “there are interested parties.”

If Barber still had one or more years remaining on his contract when he retired, the Giants still hold his rights, so any “interested parties” would be tampering. Either way, the Giants would have to decide whether to keep Tiki or cut him loose, once he is reinstated by the NFL.

Barber’s media career has bottomed out; he currently works sporadically for Yahoo! Sports after leaving NBC.

Last month, Barber’s twin brother, Ronde, re-signed with the Buccaneers for a 15th season. The Barbers will turn 36 on April 7.

Despite his age, the fact that Tiki has taken no hits for the past four years should allow him to play younger. He capped his career with more than 2,000 combined rushing and receiving yards for three straight seasons

Ronde “reignited the fire” for Tiki
Posted by Mike Florio on March 8, 2011, 3:11 PM EST

So why is running back Tiki Barber returning to the NFL?

“After seeing my brother [Ronde Barber] still have fun at our age, it reignited the fire. I’m really looking forward to the challenge of seeing if I can get back to the level of where I was,” Barber told Jay Glazer of FOXSports.com. “I started working out again recently. It kind of shocked myself. I still had a lot of the strength I had before. I’m really looking forward to making a return.”

Many will assume that Barber’s financial obligations — and lack of network TV money — has fueled his desire to squeeze the last few drops of physical ability out of his muscles, bones, and connective tissues. If things go well, it could also provide him with an off-field bump, paving the way for an appearance on Dancing with the Stars and generally positioning him for #winning.

Perhaps. More likely it is because he is incredibly boring as an analyst and any good will he had with the public to trade on as a general celebrity personality was flushed down the drain with the cheating scandal. He's definitely doing it wrong.

Hmmm, I don't know. Can we talk Mike Anderson into coming back? At least he'd bring some good weed with him.

I was at his last regular season College game. He and his punk ass brother got beat up all day at the hands of the Hokies.

It pains me that I'm uncertain whether Knowshon Moreno or Tiki Barber would be a better option at runningback next season.

Then he will blow his chance of getting into it next season. I guess he saw Hines Ward at now 35 (bday today) and doing DWTS and thought he could get some $ and better chicks to knock up or upgrade. Yahoo Sports writers just dont pull the tail in like a washed up NFL player.
