Tiki Barber: Doesn't Anyone Want An Old, Broken-Down, Un-Retired Running Back?

The ink is barely dry on those NFL reinstatement papers former New York Giants running back Tiki Barber recently filed so that he could come out of retirement. Already, though, it looks like Tiki is running out of places to launch a comeback.

Pro Football Talk today referenced a Tampa Tribune report that the Buccaneers, considered a logical landing spot since his brother Ronde is already there, have no interest in the 36-year-old Tiki. PFT also says the Steelers, a team Barber expressed interest, do not share the feeling.

We already know former Giants coach Jim Fassel would give Tiki a soft landing spot with the UFL's Las Vegas Locomotives, where he has coached the team to titles in the league's first two seasons.

What other NFL options does Tiki have, since we know it won't be the Giants? Right now this is sort of like an eBay auction where no one is bidding. New Orleans, where he would re-unite with Sean Payton? Oakland, where Al Davis has gone around the bend and might actually think this is still 2006?
