Dallas Cowboys reportedly ready to cut ties with Marion Barber III

After a lackluster and injury-plagued season, it appears Marion Barber III is on his way out in Dallas. According to the website, National Football Authority, the Cowboys are ready to release the sixth-year running back, and it could happen soon.

Barber's production has decreased over the past couple of seasons and in 2010 he rushed for just 343 yards and 4 touchdowns. Barber, who turns 28 in June, signed a seven-year deal worth $45 million in 2008. Barber is set to make $5 million dollars in 2011.

With Felix Jones and Tashard Choice already in Dallas' backfield, cutting ties with Barber (and his salary) makes sense for the Cowboys.
