    Tiki signs with NBC

    NEW YORK -- Tiki Barber will work for NBC next year after spending most of the 2006 NFL season entertaining bids from various networks for jobs in both news and sports.

    The New York Giants' Pro Bowl running back will be introduced Tuesday at a network news conference, according to a person familiar with the deal who spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not directly involved in the contract.

    Barber will work both on the "Today" show and on the network's Sunday night football show. It is unlikely he would be in the broadcast booth with the longtime team of Al Michaels and John Madden.

    Barber, who had worked in the offseason at Fox, had considered offers from that network and ESPN/ABC for news-sports roles.

    The 31-year-old Barber announced in October that 2006 would be his final season after 10 years with the Giants.

    He finished fourth in the NFL with 1,662 yards rushing, including a career-high 234 in the season finale, a 34-28 win in Washington that got the Giants to the playoffs. For his career, he had 10,449 yards rushing and 5,182 yards receiving, joining Marcus Allen and Marshall Faulk as only the third player in NFL history with 10,000 yards rushing and 5,000 receiving for their careers.

    I hope this doesn't mean the end for the Bus on NBC. I enjoyed Jerome on Football Night In America. Plus I never liked Tiki Barber. I don't know why. Just one of those player I never liked.lol I always thought he was over-rated.

    I am a fan of Tiki and Jerome both, NBC would do well to have 2 recent players of that caliber on their team to commentate.
