He's 35 and has low mileage. Could work.

In a statement released by his agent, Tiki says he cant wait to get back on a team, to slowly erode their morale with constant backbiting and bitching about coaches and teammates.

Well I guess since a career in broadcasting isn't working out for him he needs to make some money to pay child support. The schmuck.

Couldn't have said it better myself! REP!
Gawd, I hated this guy bitching about Eli
In the media then they took down the mighty
Patroits in the SB. Sweet Revenge! I loved it.

I noted a while back that Ronde was still playing and wondered if it bothered Tiki.

And what is up with those names?

Yeah this class act dumped his 8 month pregnant wife for a fling.

Clearly coming back for the $$$. Congrats Tiki. I hope you get everything you deserve.

Did he get let go by NBC?Jon Wertheim of SI.com passes this along:
Barber's personal and professional life have been in shambles recently. In April 2010, Barber reportedly left his wife of 11 years, Ginny, for 23-year-old Traci Johnson, a former NBC intern. Ginny was eight months pregnant at the time. Soon after, NBC cited its morals clause and terminated Barber's contract, which reportedly paid him more than $300,000 per year.
In June 2010, the New York Post reported Barber was broke and couldn't pay his divorce settlement with his ex-wife.http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shutdown_corner/post/Tiki-Barber-is-coming-out-of-retirement;_ylt=AqaT8Jd3JvYfp2GRbYkx.N85nYcB?urn=nfl-wp21

You think he'd be dumb enough to scab?... No more so than Favre, their both retired, thus they'd both scab out for one more grab at the pig skin.

Tweet: New York Giants on Tiki...“We wish Tiki nothing but the best, and when we are able to make the transaction, we will release him from our reserve/retired list.”

On the very next Tweet: New York Giants
on Mark Bavaro... "Giants Fans! Your beloved Tight End Mark Bavaro is in the building today, submit your questions! Mark Bavaro will be here in 15 minutes to shoot a video for our Legacy Club, but he is kind enough to take some time to answer your questions! Remember anything from the 86 or 90 season that you would like answered, nows the time!"
ROFL

I was hoping Tiki would come back & teach some of the Giants how to hold on to the ball. Not run it!

Excerpt: "If Scott Pioli and Todd Hali are planning to keep Thomas Jones next season because they love old running backs then they might very, very excited right about now.
Former NY Giants running back Tiki Barber is coming out of retirement according to his agent. Barber will turn 36 in April.

You may remember Barber for making bitter comments about his former team following his retirement. After Barber’s departure and tirade of bitterness, the Giants promptly won the Super Bowl. After a lame career in TV broadcasting, Barber is now working for Yahoo! Sports." Read more...

Excerpt: "Barber, who became a nemesis of Giants coach Tom Coughlin during his final seasons with the team, is still property of the Giants since he retired with two years remaining on the four-year, $23 million contract he signed before the 2005 season. He is currently on the Giants' reserve/retired list and the team would has to either activate or release him when his paperwork is processed.

They can't do that at the moment, though, since all NFL rosters are effectively frozen until a new collective bargaining agreement is signed.

Not that the Giants are expected to have much interest anyway, since Barber and Coughlin so famously battled during the running back's tumultuous final season. Even after Barber retired and began his broadcasting career, he continued to take shots at Coughlin and was even critical of Giants quarterback Eli Manning, too." Read more...

Because he cursed Greg Brady.
