Tiki Barber will be 36 in April, and has been out of the NFL since 2006. But, he's apparently returning to the league(that is if any team would be dumb enough to want him):
Um, wow. Barber was great in his final season for the New York Giants, totaling 2,127 yards from scrimmage, with five rushing touchdowns, and a rushing average of 5.1 yards per carry.
But this is the freaking NFL. The age of 30 is a killer for most running backs; Barber's well past that age, and while he surely still works out regularly and his legs might be feeling good these days, it's hard to be in "NFL shape" after being away from the game that long.
Between this and leaving his wife for an NBC intern, while his wife was eight months pregnant with twins, mind you, it's clear this guy is fucked up in the head.
As Rotoworld speculates, Barber's return could be a sign of how desperate he is for money following the divorce. And the thought that he is trying to return to the NFL at 36 solely for money after being the biggest asshole imaginable to his wife is quite disgusting to me.
