Biography

The New York Giants have years upon years of timeless performances and classic stars. And while names like Eli Manning will be remembered for generations to come, Tiki Barber broke numerous records during an era of the team that was marked more by its broader context rather than the individual achievements of its players. However, the three-time Pro Bowler retired in his mid-thirties to become a broadcaster - an unfamiliar world that Tiki Barber also found to be unwelcoming. Although his attempted return to the NFL in 2011 was ill-fated, few could argue that Tiki Barber seemed ready to leave football entirely behind, having already been one of the most athletically gifted running backs to have ever played the game.
