Tiki Barber: Left Pregnant Wife for NBC Intern Last Year, Returns to NFL?

Barber with former NBC Intern Tracy Johnson

Tiki Barber, former New York Giants player and “Today” correspondent is unretiring. Barber left his wife, who was pregnant with TWINS last April…for an NBC intern. Tiki’s career has gone down the toilet following that move.

The 36-year-old Barber hasn’t played in the NFL since 2006 but he’s made plenty of headlines due to his bad behavior. In April 2010, Tiki left his wife, who was pregnant with twins, for 23-year-old Traci Lynn Johnson but then NBC ditched Tiki!

After Barber left his pregnant wife and their kids, NBC booted the former NFL star because of a morals clause. Barber was earning over $300,000 per year for his on air position with the network. As of last summer, Barber claimed he was broke and could not pay his divorce settlement with his ex-wife. What a great guy! Any NFL team would be lucky to have such a stand-up guy, right?

Good luck Tiki! For your ex-wife and kids, I hope you get a contract.

    In my opinion, when someone retires they should stay retired. The only person that has come out of retirement and done well is a frog – Kermit the Frog. You can read about Kermit and Tiki at
