ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting the Miami Dolphins are interested in Marion Barber and have made contact with his agent.
The Dallas-to-Miami pipeline is back up and running. Barber has taken a tremendous pounding in recent years and is not the same player he once was. MBIII is cut from the same cloth as Ricky/Ronnie as a slower more physical style running back who would rather run through you than around you. But don't get upset Dolphins fans because if the Fins do sign Barber it wouldn't prevent them from still signing Reggie Bush, Ahmad Bradshaw, or another running back who would be more of a speed back. Which is what the Dolphins offense desperately needs. Barber is being brought in as insurance for rookie Daniel Thomas. Who still has to sign a contract and then learn a lot (ie Pass Blocking pick ups) in a short amount of time before Sep 12th and opening night.
