Tiki Barber – Trying to Stage a Come Back?
Tiki Barber, the once great running back for the NY Giants wants to get back into the game. No takers, no lookers, no phone calls. Could it possibly be that he’s old, wants too much money, or his comments on television, and dumping his very pregnant wife?
Tiki Barber walked away from a great football career at the prime of his life to get his face on a TV network. Taking the coorespondents job on NBC’s Today show, and NBC’s Football in America and Sunday Night Football, he thought the golden parachute had arrived. Except one problem, he was terrible at it and NBC failed to teach him the ropes.
Criticizing other football greats, like Eli Manning, Giants head coach, Tom Coughlin and interfered in Michael Strahan’s contract negotiation, wasn’t a very effective strategy, and cost Barber a lot.
So where does that leave Tiki Barber? Unemployed, engaged to his girlfriend, and with a dead football career. Sorry Tiki, but you may want to reconsider your options at this point.
