So two sources said Tiki was interested in the Steelers (not the other way around) and all of a sudden "Something could be coming down the line?"

Sounds like a reporter trying to stir something up to get readers.

Thoughts on Steelers, Tiki Barber

By James Walker

The New York Post reports the Pittsburgh Steelers could be an emerging candidate for free-agent running back Tiki Barber.

Although stranger things have happened, I don't see this one becoming a reality.

The Steelers have enough aging veterans on their roster, and Barber will be 36 in April. In other words, he's nearly as old as Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, 38.

Pittsburgh's running game is fine. Rashard Mendenhall has posted back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons and up-and-coming running back Isaac Redman has emerged as a valuable backup.

The only role Barber could fit in Pittsburgh is catching out of the backfield on third down. Mewelde Moore is a pending free agent and may not return, but the Steelers could look for younger and/or cheaper alternatives than Barber to fill a limited role.

In my opinion, this sounds more like Barber wanting to join a contending team in Pittsburgh. If Barber could play cornerback, he would probably have a better chance.

No kidding. I'd probably rather have fast Willie back than Tiki. Although he's probably more like "used to be fast" Willie.

Barber to the Steelers? Come on man!

The New York Post today has stated that the Steelers are a possible landing spot for Tiki Barber now that he has started the process of ending his retirement.

I don't think there's any way that happens.

I could be wrong, but I don't see the Steelers being interested in a 35-year-old guy who hasn't played a down of football in several years and who's only coming back because he needs the money once his TV gigs dried up.

It just doesn't make sense.

Yes, I know that Mewelde Moore is an unrestricted free agent, but that doesn't mean the Steelers are going to look to get older and do so with a player who's clearly in it for the money.

The Steelers are looking to get younger, not older.

I'll bet Arians is trying to get Tiki on his offense. Maybe he can be used as a full-back.

If we're choosing from running backs who retired several years ago I'd bring back Jerome over Tiki any day
