Marion Barber Calls it Quits

Marion Barber Calls it Quits

Hyped by on March 23, 2012 Website:

Just one day after the Bears signed Michael Bush to most likely take his job, Marion Barber III decided to retire at the age of 28.

Barber who did a decent job last season backing up Matt Forte eventually lost the starting job after Forte went down with an injury. His inability to do much besides run between the tackles and eventually gettting hurt lead the way to Kahili Bell taking his place.

I will always remember Barber lining up offside against Kansas City, helping the Bears get to OT against the Broncos before then costing them the game but most of all I will remember the play below.
