Former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber was found dead in his Frisco, Texas apartment at 38 years old.
Barber’s former Cowboys teammate Dez Bryant got all of his crying out of the way and released a video of Wednesday to send a very important message.
“Too much to digest, so much too say… This is real life, it can be any of us. We need each other, we need unity… RIP Marion Barber may God rest your soul,” he wrote as the caption.
Since his playing career ended, Barber had several legal issues, one of which was of him being detained by police in 2014 and taken to a hospital for a mental health evaluation, and was then arrested in 2019 on a pair of misdemeanor criminal mischief charges.
Barber was set to turn 39-years-old on June 10th.
The Plymouth, Minnesota, native was first selected by the Cowboys in the fourth round of the 2005 draft. He ran for more than 4,300 yards and had 47 rushing touchdowns over the next six seasons with the team.
Barber then finished his career with a single season with the Chicago Bears in 2011.
