“This Bruce Springsteen deal, I guess I’m too young to get it,” the former Giants running back said during an NBC conference call Wednesday. His tone was light, but he wasn’t kidding.

Hey, Tiki, guess what. I’ve seen Springsteen at Giants Stadium a few times.Â He’ll have his number retired there some day.Â Can’t say the same for you.
