Marion Barber mourned by former Dallas Cowboys after her death

DALLAS — You couldn’t help it, former Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett pointed out by phone Wednesday night, but love it.

“I will love him forever and I will miss him,” teammate Greg Ellis added via text message. “He embodied what it means to be humble.”

Coaches, players and current members of the Cowboys organization mourned the death of former running back Marion Barber after he was found dead in his apartment on Wednesday. He was 38 years old.
