08:03 AM ET 05.06 | Former Today Show correspondent and pro football player Tiki Barber remains intent on an NFL comeback. Barber is getting in shape for the NFL season, presuming there is one, and once the lockout is lifted needs to find a team, as the Giants already have stated they will release his rights so he can move on. "I'll be somewhere where I know the people, know the staff," Barber said. "It will be a team that needs some veteran leadership or just needs a little push or needs somebody they can count on to fit a role." Barber has strong ties to coaches Mike Tomlin (Pittsburgh), Raheem Morris (Tampa Bay, where his twin brother Ronde is a cornerback) and Sean Payton (New Orleans). Given that the Saints drafted Mark Ingram, figure Barber's next uniform will be Steelers black and gold or Buccaneers red and pewter.

Tampa already has the good twin. Why bring in the evil one and become a soap opera storyline?

Pittsburg, on the other hand, seems to be a suitable location for headcase RBs. I'm shocked the 'Skins didn't come up in the conversation.

I hope they fly Southwest, then, because otherwise they'll be paying a lot for all the extra baggage.

Tiki could mentor Mendenhall. Help him grow into the biggest jackass he can be. Fulfill his potential.

And that polo shirt won't have a network logo on it, either.

If they let Tiki on the plane he'd better bring a parachute. I don't think he'll still be around when the flight lands.

Mendenhall has Roethlisberger to teach him that.
