We are very sad to learn about the tragic passing of Marion Barber. The ex NFL player was only 38-years-old. As of this writing his cause of death is not known.

Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star Telegram was the first to report on Barber’s passing. He reportedly died on Wednesday and was found dead in his apartment.

The former Dallas Cowboys player lived in the great state of Texas. He stayed in a residence in Frisco Texas where police were called on a “welfare concern.” As previously stated, no specifics regarding his cause of death are known.

This is very sad as Barber was set to turn 39 on June 10th. He was a Plymouth, Minnesota native and was first picked by the Dallas Cowboys in the 4th round of the 2005 NFL Draft. He ran for over 4,300 yards and racked up 47 rushing touchdowns during his six-season career.

Barber retired in 2011 as a member of the Chicago Bears. The end of his life saw a few legal issues, including being detained by police in 2014 and taken to the hospital on a mental health evaluation. He was also arrested in 2019 on misdemeanor criminal mischief charges.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, and fans at this time. RIP.

Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News opened the door for a new opportunity for Jenkins. With a history in finance, he broke into the journalism game by writing on blogs and other freelance websites before branching into sports and entertainment news. Being in tune with pop culture doesn't mean it has to make sense, but he tries. Favorite bands include any group from Seattle who formed between 1991 and 1999. 5 Ozzfests under his belt and 12 Warped Tours, but his last concert was a bluegrass AC/DC cover band that was not 100% terrible.
