Marion Barber on the trade block

http://blogs.nfl.com/2010/03/29/la-canfora-barber-gaither-could-be-available/

We've already got Coffee. But Barber and Gore would be cool.
No thanks he seemed to lose a step last year and we really dont need 3 similar backs.....
Good fit for the Chargers

F him, read the rest of it, I would offer a 2nd for Gaither.

I'd take him if he restructured his contract. Dude is a powerback.
He is on the decline. I would take Felix Jones or even Tashard Choice but Barber at this point is really just a short yardage/goal- line RB.

5th round
Great runner, but his running style is why his career looks like it's going to be shorter than you'd like for a RB. He's a player, no doubt, but he won't be coming here.

Marion Barber's running style helps stabilize offenses and puts doubts on defensive players. Gore/Barber Combo would be sick! Gore starter and make Barber a change of phase where he was most successful!

Agreed. IMO, our third back needs to be a multitasker, such as a speed back/PR/KR/special teamer. This type of back could also help in selling play-actions, lineup in the slot, etc.
Not the same guy he was a few years ago, his extremely physical style definitely caught up to him.
