    Tiki Barber seems interested in the Steelers

    Tiki Barber seems interested in the Stehttp://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...-the-steelers/elers

    Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on March 10, 2011, 11:22 AM EST

    A report surfaced in the New York Post Thursday stating that the Steelers “has emerged as a possible landing spot” for Tiki Barber.

    Or at least Barber seems to hope so.

    “There could be something down the line with Barber and the Steelers, according to two sources who stated that Barber would certainly be interested in restarting his career in Pittsburgh,” Paul Schwartz wrote.

    It’s hard to tell if there is much meat on this bone or if Barber just likes the idea of the Steelers because they are contenders with a good coach.

    While the Steelers could use a third-down back with Mewelde Moore set to hit free agency, Barber doesn’t fit the Steelers profile. They rarely sign aging free agents (unless they are ex-Steelers), and like most teams would expect a backup running back to contribute on special teams.

    Barber’s agent says he hasn’t spoken with other teams yet, even though he said there were “interested parties” just a few days ago.

    “In light of the fact that [the Giants] will not be retaining his rights, and have stated such publicly, we are hoping that we can begin speaking with other teams as soon as possible,” agent Mark Lepselter told the Post.

    There’s really no gray area here. Lepselter will have to wait for a CBA agreement to speak to other teams.

    Or at least he’ll have to wait to admit to speaking to other teams. Again.

    Tiki may have interest in the Steelers but I doubt they have any interest in Him.

    There would no reason whatsoever to bring in Barber; this is just Tiki talking about who he'd like to play for. The Steelers should have no interest in him at all; if they did it would basically be trading Mewelde Moore for Tiki Barber, and I'll take Moore thank you...

    Steelers don’t share Tiki Barber’s interest

    Posted by Michael David Smith on March 10, 2011, 4:32 PM EST

    Tiki Barber may be interested in ending his NFL retirement and signing with the Steelers, but the Steelers don’t share Barber’s interest in getting a deal done.

    Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Steelers have no interest in Barber.

    Technically, Barber remains under contract to the Giants, although the Giants have already announced that they’ll release him as soon as teams are allowed to make personnel moves.

    The soon-to-be 36-year-old Barber says he’ll be healthy, in shape and ready to go for the 2011 season. So far there’s been no confirmed interest from any team.

    Thats what every team wants! A 36 year old running back that hasn't played in 4 years.

    Wasnt it Tiki would fumbled alot early in his career and then just stopped fumbling his last couple seasons? That might be worth something, if he could teach Mendy, Redman and Dwyer how not to fumble the ball.
