Former NFL Star Running Back Marion Barber Found Dead By Police

Former NFL running back Marion Barber was found dead Wednesday by law enforcement officials at his residence in Frisco, Texas.

“[The Dallas Cowboys] told NBC 5 that Barber, 38, was found unresponsive,” NBC DFW reported. “Further details are not yet known and a cause of death has not been provided.”

“Officers are currently out on a welfare concern, but we are unable to provide any further information at this time,” a Frisco police spokesperson said in a statement.

Barber, whose birthday was next week, played seven years in the NFL, making his career with the Cowboys, where he played six seasons.

“He was a Pro Bowler in 2007 after rushing for 975 yards and 10 touchdowns in a season that he didn’t start a game for Dallas, splitting time with Julius Jones,” the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. “Barber finished his career with 4,780 rushing yards and 53 rushing touchdowns.”
