((Last year, the New York Giant ruinning back was most productive as a reciever. He hauled in 42 passes, averaged 8.3 yards per reception and scored three touchdowns through the air. The UVa grad also gained nearly 18 yards everytime he ran back a kick off. And while the Giants are high on his ability to break the big run Tiki Barber still approaches his third NFL season much like his first, with something to prove. ((TIKI BARBER:)) ((STEVE MASON:)) ((:)) Tiki is usually the first Giant in the locker room to lift weights, but football is not his life. He embarked on his acting career this off season and will make the biggest move of his life this May when he ties the not with his college sweetheart, Jenny Cha. ((:)) The Giants open mini camp May 10th. Steve Mason, News 7 sports".))
