Well, here's something odd on what's shaping up to be a weird NFL afternoon: Tiki Barber, former NFL running back and TV host and sports reporter, has filed papers with the NFL to come out of retirement and return to playing football.
That's according to his management agency, MAXX Talent, anyway.
"BREAKING NEWS #maxxclient Tiki Barber has filed the papers with the NFL to officially come out of retirement," the agency tweeted on Tuesday afternoon.
For those wondering, no, this doesn't make much sense at all.
Presumably, the logic behind this move involves Tiki recently divorcing his wife (alimony and child support aren't cheap, folks) and having that divorce result in his disappearance from the television to the Interwebs (he got booted from NBC's The Today Show and moving to Yahoo! Sports).
That is to say, he would probably like to earn a couple more NFL-sized paychecks to help keep up his current lifestyle.
Or maybe he's just inspired by his twin brother, Ronde, who re-upped with the Bucs for a one-year deal recently.
"After seeing how much fun Ronde is still having it re-ignited my fire and I'm looking forward to the challenge of seeing if I can get back to the level of where I was," Tiki told FOX Sports' Jay Glazer.
The process, for those wondering, is that the Giants will need to activate Tiki and then decide whether or not they want to release him or hold onto him. Considering the kind words he's had for Tom Coughlin's team as an analyst, though, that seems pretty unlikely.
But there are some other (obvious) problems to this return, outside of whether the Giants need him. Like, does Tiki realize that we're in the middle of a week where the NFL and NFLPA are negotiating whether there will even be an NFL season next year? Because if he doesn't, he probably should.
He should probably also realize that he's 35-years-old, he hasn't played in four years and that if he does get inked by a team, it's likely he won't be signing for a max deal.
