Barber joined the Giants as a second-round draft choice in 1997. When he retired following his 10th season in 2006, his name was all over the franchise's record book. Barber owns the Giants marks for rushing attempts in a career (2,217) and in a season (357 in 2005) and rushing yards in a career (10,440), a season (1,860 in 2005) and a game (234 at Washington on Dec. 20, 2006 in his final regular season game). Barber has the top three and four of the top five single-season rushing totals in Giants history and the two highest game totals. His 38 100-yard games are twice as many as No. 2 Joe Morris and his nine 100-yard games in 2004 is another record. Barber has the longest run from scrimmage in Giants history (95 yards at Oakland on Dec. 31, 2005) and his 55 rushing touchdowns are another one of his records. Barber's 17,359 all-purpose yards give him another record. He owns the Giants' top five single-season total yardage figures. Another one of his records is 13 catches at Dallas on Jan. 2, 2000. Barber is also second in franchise history with 586 career receptions. He was selected to three Pro Bowls (2004-06).
