Marion Barber, 38, died, Cowboys say

Marion Barber III, the Dallas Cowboys' fourth-leading rusher with 47 touchdowns, has died. 38-year-old

Barber spent his first six seasons with the Cowboys. Post-career, he experienced mental health concerns.

Frisco police did a welfare check at an apartment "believed to be rented" by Barber and are investigating an unattended death.

Marion was a hard-nosed, old-school football player, the squad claimed. His coaches and players loved him.

Ezekiel Elliott overtook the younger Barber in 2021 to become Dallas' all-time running leader.

Barber ended with 53 career touchdowns and never had less than four in any of his seven seasons.
