Every two or three weeks, the agent for Tiki Barber talks to a reporter and expresses an interest for his client to return to the NFL.
And every time, the agent drops the Steelers - along with Tampa Bay - as the team his client would like to wind up with.
And every time I am again forced to reiterate that there is very little chance Barber winds up in Pittsburgh.
Just because Barber would like to play for the Steelers and his agent keeps saying that two teams have shown interest in the former Pro Bowl running back, doesn't mean the Steelers have shown interest in Barber.
In fact, I highly doubt any team has shown interest in Barber. At this point, he's still property of the New York Giants until they release him from their retired list.
The Steelers just don't work that way, particularly with somebody who is property of a team with which the Steelers have very close ties.
