But that does not mean there is nothing going on.
Tiki Barber's comeback is not expected to go well. He has reportedly shown interest in the Pittsburgh Steelers. They, in turn, have shown no interest in him. The Steelers rarely sign overpriced veterans and I suspect if they start, it will be with Barber.
Tiki's options will be limited once he hits the market. It is probably the worst time in recent memory to be a free agent. Until a new CBA is forged, free agency is an amorphous entity. No one knows if any of the tenders extended to players will be valid and what the salary cap will be.
Another strike against this comeback bid is Tiki's age and rust. He'll be 36 next month and hasn't touched a football in four full seasons. Any offer he gets will be an incentive-laden one that he would be hard-pressed to maximize.
Barber's best option may be the UFL where the average salary is $50k. If he is doing this for the money, the risk promises to outweigh the reward.
