    Well he is certainly better than Mathews, he hasn't fumbled the football in years. :)

    messy divorce, he probably needs the dough.
    They had him in the studio over in Britain the night of the Superbowl, he seemed a decent enough analyst to me.
    Good luck to him.

    they do not say his name enough on ESPN to suit his standards, and he is tired of talking about Brett Favre and his numerous comebacks so he thought he would throw his name back into the mix.

    Next up to come out of retirement will be John Elway, that way the Broncos fans can start talking about Super Bowls again.

    Dude is broke. His wife took all his money when she divorced him for having an affair, then his TV career was a flop. So dude is broke and is looking for a way to make money.

    Too bad for him, no team in the league will even give him a shot

    He has a better chance of starting the first game of the season than Bob Sanders does...

    I wouldn't make that bet if I were you. I would be willing to bet that even if Sander only plays 3 games, he would have a bigger impact than Tiki would with any team in 16

    My point is that Tiki is healthy, Bob "Mr. Glass" Sanders is not expected to be able to be on the active roster at the opening of the season.

    Besides, some team will offer Tiki a small time contract with incentives, just to see what he can do.

    Is Sanders hurt? Not that it'd shock me but I thought he was healthy and all the concern was that he'd just injure himself again when (if) the season starts.

    His bicep tear the ended his last season is still an issue. The injury reports (on the fantasy football pages) list him as doubtful to questionable for the start of the 2011 season.
