The St. Petersburg Times was able to ask Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Raheem Morris about the idea of signing Tiki Barber. Morris mentioned that he has yet to discuss the Barber with general manager Mark Dominik but Morris did some mild interest in the idea.
“When you’re talking about those type of great players, you’ve always got to have interest,” Morris said. “And if he’s got the heart and the desire and the fire, I say you do it. It’s no different than his brother.”
“You never rule out anything,” Morris said. “You look into it, you investigate it and make a decision as an organization.”
Cadillac Williams is set to become a free agent so they will most likely leave their options open before committing to any one player.
The Giants have announced that they will release Tiki Barber and allow him to become a free agent. There’s already a lot speculation that the Buccaneers could bring him because of the fact that they have Ronde Barber already under contract.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter has just reported that the reports of former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber unretiring are actually true.
Barber, 36, has been out of the league for four-years. The Giants still hold the rights to Barber who had two-years remaining on his contract when he retired which will force them to make a decision as to whether to cut him or retain him. Ahmad Bradshaw is set to become a free agent and the Giants have already made it known that he is their top-priority so it will be interesting to see how this situation plays out.
Schefter adds that the some speculative options for Barber could include the New Orleans Saints, Denver Broncos and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is the Giants choose to release him.
