    Re: Tiki Barber Plans to Play in 2011

    I would say that a team like Arizona might give him a shot, but they've gone the "seasoned" running back route with Edgerrin James and Emmitt Smith already. The Vikings could be a possible fit because they certainly could use a back with his skill set. The Rams, Texans, Colts and Dolphins could all be teams to give Barber a look. It couldn't hurt. He retired following the 2006 season while he still had game (1,662 yards, 58 receptions).

    Then again, he retired when Brett Favre was still a Packer, Chad's last name was still Johnson and the Giants were still the most popular team in New York.

    The Giants have stated that they will not retain his rights. He would certainly need to take a veteran minimum type deal. This could be $ motivating him to return; however, I think it has more to do with his ego and lack of attention ala Favre. I don't think he can handle being out of the spotlight.

    I would be the first to make the Fire Frazier topic if that happened.

    RBs are a dime-a-dozen, they depreciate faster than a new car. Woe is the team that signs a kodger to do a young man's job. Get a line and plug in Joe Schmo fresh off his stint at the university and he'll look like a hero, well, at least servicable.
