Tiki Barber To Come Out of Retirement

Josh McCainSenior Writer IMarch 8, 2011

Coming across the Twitter Board, CBS Sports has tweeted that former New York Giant's running back Tiki Barber has filed the necessary paperwork with the NFL to come out of retirement.

As of right now there is nothing else to this report.

It is probably safe to assume being four years removed from the league, Tiki would re-enter the NFL as a free agent.

Barber will be 36 by the time the seasons starts, and given that most running backs are calling it a career at 30, I just don't see how he's going to make a roster.

There you have it folks, Tiki Barber feels he's still got something left in the tank and can contribute to the NFL.  After all, had he waited one more year to retire he could have gotten a ring. 

Maybe that fire to get a Super Bowl championship still burns inside of him.

UPDATE:

The Giants would retain the 2011 right to Tiki and he would not be an automatic free agent, this according to NFL Network's Jason LaCantfora.
