According to Randy Galloway of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, tailback Marion Barber could lose his starting job to Felix Jones.
“That has been a consideration, and it certainly is a consideration,” owner Jerry Jones said.
This year, Barber is due to receive a base salary of $3.86 million. Jones will receive only $877,500. Though both have a key role in the offense, it’ll be hard to justify paying big money to Barber and not actually using him as much as Jones. And so it could mean that, eventually, Barber may be available to anyone interested in taking on big money second contract to a guy who is only three years away from 30, which is the new 50 for NFL running backs.
