Bucs will say no to Tiki Barber

TAMPA—It’s not going to happen.
Tiki Barber’s hopes of joining his twin brother, Ronde, on the Buccaneers are destined to end in disappointment because Tampa Bay has no interest in the former Pro Bowl running back of the New York Giants.
At the age of 36, Tiki doesn’t fit in with Tampa Bay’s youth movement and the people that count within the organization have no intentions of signing him once he is granted his release from the Giants upon the end of the NFL lockout.
The Bucs are a natural destination from Tiki’s viewpoint as he attempts to resurrect his career after four seasons on the sidelines. Playing with Ronde would fulfill a dream, but the Bucs don’t believe he is the right fit at this juncture.
Perhaps the Steelers, led by former Bucs assistant Mike Tomlin, would consider adding Barber for backfield depth.
The idea of Tiki Barber signing with the Bucs may be intriguing to fans and some members of the media, but the reality is it’s not going to happen, so Tiki needs to readjust his sights accordingly.
