Tiki Barber lands TV gig with Reelz

The comeback has been abandoned.

His former team the New York Giants are headed to the NFC Championship Game for the second time since Tiki Barber retired. Now, we’re not hearing about the running game making a bid to play football again.

Instead, it was announced today that Barber will host “Hollywood’s Gridiron Greats” on Reelz. It will focus on football players who have gone to the movie world and actors who have gone to the football field like Cuba Gooding Jr.

Barber retired after 10 seasons playing with the Giants. He transitioned quickly into television work with NBC before his career there fizzled. Now, he’s found something to do. Hopefully, it works out well.
