Reports emerged Tuesday that former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber has submitted the necessary paperwork to return from retirement.  Barber retired at the end of the 2006 season and the height of his career.  He was 30 years old then and will be re-entering the league at an age when most running backs are considering retirement and all running backs’ numbers are declining.
