Synopsis

Tiki Barber by David A. Aretha

Selected by the New York Giants in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft, Tiki Barber's first few rookie years did not go well. Plagued by knee injuries, he was replaced as a starter. After doing his own endurance training by running up a steep, two-mile hill near his home, he rebounded and established himself as a starter and playmaker. In 2000, Barber started 12 games, ran for more than 1,000 yards for the first time as a pro, and notched 2,000 all-purpose yards. In 2006, at a time when most running backs late in their career are physically breaking down, Barber had a stellar year. He became the fourth running back in NFL history to lead their respective franchises in career receptions and the third player in NFL history to gain more than 10,000 rushing yards and 5,000 receiving yards in an NFL career. Barber retired at his peak in 2006. Known for his intelligence and frankness, he can now be seen on NBC's Today Show as a correspondent.
