Tiki Barber: Un-Retiring?

People were pretty skeptical about this news but it turns out that is true. The one, the only Tiki Barber has alerted NFL that he plans to come out of retirement. He says he wants to play the 2011 season. In case you didn’t know Tiki Barber is a former New York Giants running back.

This was just a rumor until a few hours ago when the agency that represents Tiki Barber confirmed the news on its Twitter account. The Giants also knowledge that Barber has been taken off the reserve retirement list and they are going to release him as soon as the league allows it. This would be a big change for Tiki. Tiki Barber retired in 2007.

Now at 35 years old and turning 36 and April, he would be a pretty old football player. There are a few that are still that age and playing but most of them are retiring around that time. I thought that he was going to have a pretty good run in television but after his divorce it just seems like things are going pretty much downhill for him. It will be interesting to see what happens when Tiki Barber comes out of retirement.
