Default Marion Barber in a Texans Uniform?

Interesting to think about! A 5th for Marion the Barbarian?!? HM

I think so...Imagine how hard that dude will run on sept 26th at noon (can't freakin' wait for that game!)

Opinions?

MARION BARBER, COWBOYS, RUNNING BACK

Why he might be traded: The Cowboys have two other good running backs in Felix Jones and Tashard Choice. Barber's 2010 compensation of close to $8 million could be prohibitive, however, for some teams.
Where he might be traded: Houston, Cleveland, Seattle.
Likelihood of trade taking place and possible value: 5%, 5th Round.

Default Re: Marion Barber in a Texans Uniform?

He's been a productive back and he runs hard - something this team could really use - the one downside is the salary but with this being an uncapped year it means much less than it would in past years. I'd give a 5th for him without thinking twice. Then again its easy tor me to spend Bob's money.

It would sure clear up the draft needs if they could get a solid NFL back .....

Default Re: Marion Barber in a Texans Uniform?

8 million next year for Barber?? Waste of money even in an uncapped year. Could have had LT or TJ for 5 million over 2 years. The Cowboys will cut him if that money isn't guaranteed or if they can trade him, they have two good RBs on the roster already. If he does get cut, I hope the Texans go after him for depth, but not thinking he will start.

He's had some nagging injuries. Toe I think. Maybe leg. All I am sure a product of his running style. He's just a bull. He's almost always going to get caught from behind in the open field but he will roll over guys to get in that open field.

I have to admit I am a bit shocked he's even in the trade talk arena..I was somebody that said he was not a player they would consider trading. I was wrong it seems!

A 5th seems like a bargain to me for him.

Default Re: Marion Barber in a Texans Uniform?

The reason I would want Barber is not for his running style. Yes he does run over people but sometimes he misses yards because he looks for someone to hit and as a result will run horizontally. Don't get me wrong he would be a good back but the reason I'd take him is for his pass blocking ablility.

Default Re: Marion Barber in a Texans Uniform?

I am not a huge fan of Marion Barber.

1. Injuries

2. Dances around too much

3. Can't beat out the other two guys on that roster (wow)

4. He gonna cost some money. We gonna lose a draft pick.

He might be a poor man's Ricky Williams, at best.

We just need a guy that can gain 1 yard at the end zone. Marion Barber fits the bill.

The important question......what would we have to give up for him?

He did. Along with Maroney. I think I'd rather have Maroney, but I'd give up a ~6th for Barber.

It'd be cool for the two brothers to play together as well.
