Long before his New York City radio career, Tiki Barber was rushing for touchdowns, while starring in the New York Giants backfield. Barber played 10 years for Big Blue. The second round draft pick out of Virginia rushed for well over 10,000 yards in the late '90's and early 2000's. Now he hosts the "Tiki & Tierney" show on WFAN out of New York City and has strong opinions about his old team and their current players.
Wednesday, newly minted New York Giants general manager Joe Schoen began a major overhaul of the team's less than stellar roster. Schoen set about chopping some of the unproductive salaries left by his predecessor Dave Gettleman.

The one person that may benefit the most out of the Joe Schoen/Brian Daboll era with the New York Giants is quarterback Daniel Jones.

That isn't a great ratio of stability, for one that plays a position that is supposed lead your $4.85 billion franchise. In order to make the most of this new opportunity, Jones reached out to the guy that did pretty well with Brian Daboll at his side in Buffalo.
