    From Adam Schefter:

    Twitter

    Seems a little strange! I'm guessing he would be a FA?

    He retired in 2006, that's a long time out of football!

    $100 he joins the redskins. Snyder will take anyone who was a superstar. and also as an FU to the giants.

    There's no WAY he's going back there. I doubt he's worth anything on the open market. I'd have to think Giants will have to cut him. His guarantee would be gone I would assume when he retired.

    I wouldn't argue with you about where he'll end up, since I don't think the Giants will want him back. I was just passing on what's been reported about his rights.

    Aren't the Yankees trying to sign all the best players from the mid-00s? He'd be perfect there.

    Wrong sport you say? Bah!

    I forgot, was it a RB who wanted to come out of retirement in his 50s? I feel stupid because I remember it was a name I should easily recall...

    Yes they do, though from the sounds of it, the Giants plan on releasing him so he can be a free agent.

    Isn't this the guy that dogged his coach, retired, and then the team went on to win the superbowl? Any team that picks him up is pretty much doomed this year.

    Tiki's problem was that Tiki can't help but allow young ladies who don't happen to be his wife play with his lit-up Tiki Torch

    Why would that bother the Giants? They owned his rights since he retired while still under contract, but they have already told him to take a hike, making the announcement a couple of nano seconds after Tiki announced his "return."

    they cut him about two seconds after he made the announcement. can't do it formally until there's a new CBA, but they made it clear they wanted nothing to do with him. he's toxic in NY after trashing Eli and Coughlin, who then just happened to go on and win a SB...

    As mentioned above, they announced they were letting him go almost simultaneously with his announcement...they expressed the usual "best wishes," but pretty clearly meant "get lost fool."

    No, I mean if he thinks he can still play, wouldn't he love to shred the giants?
