Chicago Bears

Marion Barber to the Windy City

The Chicago Bears have just agreed to terms with running back Marion Barber. The former Dallas Cowboy was a starter for a few seasons, before getting nicked up with on and off injuries.

Barber is a tough guy to tackle. He runs inside the tackles, and will give the Bears immediate depth. He could start or split time if needed, but I believe Matt Forte will have an outstanding 2011 campaign. We shall see how he fits into Mike Mart’z system, with Matt Forte and Chester Taylor already on the roster.

Another low risk move by the Chicago Bears. Quietly making moves, much like the St. Louis Rams, Carolina Panthers, and the Denver Broncos.
