Could N.Y. Giants' Tiki Barber return to NFL?

Could N.Y. Giants' Tiki Barber return to NFL?
BY BOB HOLT

Four years after he quit, Tiki Barber wants back into football. The Giants are saying, “No, thanks.”

The New York Giants acknowledged on Tuesday that the nearly 36-year-old Barber has asked to be taken off the reserve-retirement list and that they will release him once the league allows it.

The Asbury Park Press reports Barber retired after the 2006 season, the year before the Giants' Super Bowl win over the New England Patriots. He had two years left on his contract when he left the game for a job in television, so the Giants still hold his rights.

After he retired, Barber said Giants coach Tom Coughlin was so unpleasant to play for that he helped spur him to quit. And Barber also once called quarterback Eli Manning's leadership skills "almost comical."
