TPS reports that;

The former Dallas Cowboys cornerback told Tyler Dunne of GoLongTD.com that the last time he saw Barber was in 2019. He stated he saw Barber walking down the street and Newman said he was taken aback by his ex-teammate’s appearance.

“I see this guy walking down the street — in the rain,” Newman said. “I get to the gas station and it’s Marion. I hadn’t seen Marion in a while, but I heard he had fallen on hard times and wasn’t doing too well. So, we talked and exchanged numbers, but I was scared when I saw him.

“He looked bad. He looked like he wasn’t there, like he was a different person, like he couldn’t function. And that’s probably why he was walking and not driving. When I tell you I was scared, I thought he might swing on me. I was actually scared.”

Newman speculated that he believed concussions “had to play some type of role in whatever happened to him.”

“He had a look but also his face was just droopy,” Newman continued. “It looked like he was homeless. Like he lived on the streets. I guess he had so many concussions that it really impacted him.”

The 38-year-old Barber was found dead on June 1st by police conducting a wellness check. No official cause of death has been released.

Sadly Barber passed away not too long after that.

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Marion Barber was found dead in his apartment by Frisco police on Wednesday, per multiple sources. The cause of his death is unknown. According police spokesperson said Joshua Lovell, “Frisco Police responded to a welfare concern at an apartment believed to be leased by Marion Barber. Frisco Police along with the Collin County Medical Examiner’s Office are investigating an unattended death at the location.”
