Giants | Barber discusses retirement issue

Citing a discussion with former Detroit Lions RB Barry Sanders, New York Giants RB Tiki Barber explained why he has considered retiring from the NFL in recent years. "He (Sanders) said at some point, you just lose your passion for it," Barber said. "You get beat up enough times, you realize it's a young man's game and you want to do something else. I'm sure all of that plays in, but like I said, I have a lot of interests and I've never wanted to be solely defined as a football player. I wasn't that way in high school, I wasn't that way in college and I won't compromise my ideals to be that way in the National Football League. I do my job and I do it well, but I also know that there's other things that I can do well that I'll get to eventually."
