Default Anyone know what teams Tiki Barber tried out with?

After he announced his comeback, I didn't hear his name mentioned much during the preseason. Who did he workout with?

It's gotta be devasting for him that his broadcasting career went down the toilet and then to not get picked up by a team after all that hard work.

Didn't Pittsburgh show some initial interest? Wiki says Miami worked him out.

Someone clearly told him he'd get a shot or he would have never done what he's trying to do. I think at some point if there is an injury to a team he may get a call.

i know i saw on espn or somewhere that he got 0 interest. i don't know about him trying out for Miami. i don't know why he retired in the first place since he was playing well and a big part of the Giants offense.

it seems like he's a idiot tho. i think i heard he's broke or in debt, left his pregnant girl if i remember right for some other azn ho? just sounds like he's got a lot of issues going on where karma hit him back. it seems to be hitting a lot of people back later in their careers...

He got too big for his britches and left football for greener pastures thinking he was the next Bryant Gumbel and yes his income has taken a hit.

Glad to see his life turned upside down. Dude thought he was too good to play for New York, trashed his former teammates, thought he was too smart to be an NFL player. Tried to be a reporter and failed. Then he cheats on his wife.

I remember seeing him interviewing the Giants players when they beat New England, that must have burned him badly.

Why would a team call a 36 year old that hasn't played in 5 years? There are 100 guys in line before his name will come up.

Indications are that Tiki...not anyone else... thought everyone would want Tiki.
