Tiki Barber: Jeremiah Trotter Used To Tickle Me Under The Pile


The bottom of an NFL pile seems like the type of place that if for some reason you really hated someone and wanted them to suffer eons of pain, you’d send them to. Poking, biting, punching, genital grabbing…we know it all goes on there. But tickling??? According to former Giants running back Tiki Barber, that’s something that happens, too. This is how Barber answered the question of, “Was there a single defensive player he actively avoided on the football field,” during a recent Reddit chat, via Business Insider:

“Jeremiah Trotter. We played each other so much and knew each other so well that when he hit me, he hit me hard. But he’d also help me up and sometimes tickle me under the pile.”
