Tiki Barber Devastated
September 6, 2011 by USA Post
Barber wrote King is “devastated” that not a single club in the NFL or the agent called him as the star Mark Lepselter former runner attempts a comeback for the 2011 season.
Barber was a hot commodity for TV when he retired New York Giants after the 2006 season.
After speaking with ESPN, he joined NBC in which he appeared with the king as a studioanlyst on NBC’s Sunday night and served as a correspondent for the NBC Today Show-notch.
But the anticipated TV career Barber went out. He was taken out of the Football Night in America studio and became a sideline reporter. The network did not renew his contract after the 2010 season.
Worse, Barber’s personal life became tabloid fodder when it was reported that Ginny had left a pregnant woman, a former intern Traci Lynn Johnson NBC. Barber is committed to Johnson, while their bitter divorce with the product Ginny in the Supreme Court in Manhattan.
After getting back in the gym and training hard, the barber of 36 years decided to come out of retirement and play in the NFL this season. But he could not get a sniff of any club, after five years away from the game – except for the Miami Dolphins, which he worked, but not sign it.
The ultimate test of Tiki King on Monday morning quarterback column in Sports Illustrated:
I tried to get Barber on Sunday, but did not speak. I heard that devastated that no team gave him a chance. You might wonder if they bring the equipment after the first game of the season, so his contract would not be guaranteed and could still happen. But without calling Lepselter team, even with a touch of interest, the more likely that teams would begin with the back that have been in a football tournament this summer. Lepselter said Sunday: “We are stunned that Tiki has not had a chance with any team, especially when they were lists of 90 players this year no doubt thought that any team was intrigued to see what was left in the tank.”
