Not worth the trouble Kevin Van Valkenburg Baltimore Sun According to his agent, Tiki Barber supposedly is "flabbergasted" that no NFL team was interested in giving him a shot to make their team this preseason, even though he's 36 and has been out of the NFL for four years. The fact Barber didn't see this coming in further proof that, despite his intelligence, he's one of the most tone-deaf athletes the NFL has seen. No team is going to give Barber a shot, even after the season begins and injuries mount, because he's not worth the trouble.
