Wednesday’s radio interview of former Giants running back Tiki Barber by WFAN’s Mike Francesa made headlines because of the argument that erupted regarding whether or not Tiki’s broadcasting career ended in failure.
From a football standpoint, the interview also made news. Agent Mark Lepselter, who was on the line for the phone interview, said that two teams have shown significant interest, and that one team has emerged as the favorite.
“We feel we know where we’re going,” agent Mark Lepselter said at least three times.
Lepselter said he spoke with teams before the lockout began and during the brief period the lockout was lifted. As to the tampering issue, it appears that the Giants have given Tiki and Lepselter the green light to look for his next job, and that they’ll release his rights as soon as the lockout ends.
Surprisingly, Francesa didn’t ask Lepselter or Barber to name the teams. Though they likely would have declined, Francesa doesn’t seem to be the type to shy away from asking a question that the guest won’t be inclined to answer.
