What's up with this? Tiki Barber didn't want to play football at age 30 (on a team poised to win the Super Bowl) but he does want to play RB at age 35.
http://www.nytimes.com/2011/03/09/sp...rber.html?_r=1Barberís broadcast career fizzled in 2010 when NBC did not renew his contract. This followed Barberís confirming he would divorce his wife of 11 years, who was eight months pregnant with twins. That announcement was Barberís only response to widespread tabloid reports that he had an affair. Barber has made intermittent broadcast appearances since then, including during the BBCís coverage of the Super Bowl this year.
If Barber is signed by an N.F.L. team when transactions resume, he would make at least the veteranís minimum, around $800,000 a year. His twin, Ronde, recently signed a one-year contract to play a 15th season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Anyone care to pay him $800K to play RB at age 35?
