“We are he’artbroken by the tra’gic de’ath of Marion Barber III,” the Dallas Cowboys said in a statement.
“Marion was an old-school, hard-no’sed football player who ran with the will to win every down. He had a pas’sion for the game and love for his coaches and teammates.”
“Our hearts go out to Marion’s family and friends during this difficult time.”
The former University of Minnesota star had a solid pro career spanning seven seasons … suiting up for, most notably, the Cowboys from 2005-2010. He also played one season with the Chicago Bears.
Barber was a 4th-round pick … earning 4,780 rushing yards and 53 rushing touchdowns over 99 total games. His rough running style earned him the nickname, “Marion the Barbarian.”
