Tiki Barber’s Agent Mark Lepselter Knew He Sucked as Media Personality

Tiki is still trying to talk his way back into the NFL, even though no one wants him. He claims that he turned down an opportunity to return in 2007 and play for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers because he didn’t want to tarnish his legacy with the New York Giants.

I find that interesting since his legacy now is someone who nobody liked and they ended up winning a Super Bowl after he was gone.

Barber’s agent wanted him to accept the deal with the Bucs because he knew his media career would fail.

Ian O’Conner of ESPNNewYork.com writes that Tiki met with Jon Gruden and former Bucs G.M. Bruce Allen for drinks midway through the 2007 season, with Gruden putting on a full court press to sign Tiki for the stretch run.  Barber’s agent was all for it, because he didn’t like how Barber’s broadcast career was starting out.

“I was pushing for it hard,” Lepselter said, “because I already knew things weren’t going in the right direction for Tiki.”

Tiki has plenty of time to reflect now, since he was fired from NBC for sleeping with the intern, while his wife was pregnant with twins.

Just in case you didn’t know.

      Yeah, well, blonde white women are a dime a dozen (and she’s just slightly above a becky) but 2-million dollar a year paychecks as a sports TV analyst, are not!
