According to multiple sources, the Bears have reached a two-year agreement with former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber.
Barber, known for his aggressive running style and the punishment he delivers to defenders, was released by the Cowboys in a cost-cutting move. At 28, he still may have a few good years left in him and could be a nice change-of-pace back to help wear defenses down in the run game.
Barber will join former Cowboys teammates Roy Williams and Sam Hurd with the Bears.
