'He made us all better': Former Dallas Cowboys coach, teammate remember Marion Barber

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

I forever will love and miss him,” teammate Greg Ellis added by text. “He epitomized 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 Wednesday. He was 38 years old.

 They remembered a player as quiet and respectful off the field as he was physical and punishing on it.

 Barber died nine days short of his 39th birthday.

He never complained about anything,” Ellis said. “One of the best teammates I have been blessed to play with. I forever will love and miss him.”

Ellis, whose 12.5 sacks earned him a 2007 Pro Bowl selection with Barber, remembered Barber's "outstanding run" to avoid a safety against the New England Patriots in 2007.
