Many former teammates and coaches have expressed regret, shock, and grief over the
untimely death of former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber, who was discovered lifeless
in his residence on Wednesday by Frisco police. Coach Bill Parcells, who chose Barber
in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft, was one of them. Barber, who spent six of his seven NFL
seasons with the Cowboys, was with Parcells for his first two seasons and left an
indelible mark. According to a source, Barber had no communication with anyone from Saturday
until he was discovered by police on Wednesday during a welfare check.
