His post-play years were troubled. In 2014, Barber was detained by police in Mansfield, Texas, also outside of Dallas, and hospitalized for a mental health evaluation.

And according to police reports, he was arrested in 2019 on two counts of criminal mischief for incidents the previous year in which, while jogging, Barber approached two cars different and hit and damaged them. He pleaded no contest and his sentence included 12 months probation.

Last year, former Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant posted a video of Barber’s plays on Twitter and wrote that “he’s down…we’re just a stat and moments for Most people”.

On Monday, Bryant wrote on Twitter: “Too much to digest, so much to say… This is real life, it can be any one of us. We need each other, we need unity.

Marion Sylvester Barber III was born on June 10, 1983 in Plymouth, Minnesota, west of Minneapolis. Like his father, Barber played at the University of Minnesota, where he was part of a powerful backfield with Laurence Maroney. Barber rushed for 1,196 yards and 1,269 yards in 2003 and 2004.

The Cowboys selected him in the fourth round of the 2005 NFL Draft.

Football was a family affair for barbers. In addition to his father, Barber’s brothers, Thomas and Dominique, also played for the University of Minnesota Gophers. Dominique was a defensive back with the Houston Texans of the NFL.

In a statement Thursday, PJ Fleck, head coach of the Gophers, said, “Marion was one of the best to ever play in Minnesota, and he’s a big reason a lot of people are Gopher fans today.”
