According to the DMN, Marion Barber has hired the notorious, Drew Rosehaus, the master of contract negotiations.
Rosenhaus has added running back Marion Barber to his client list, joining teammate Terrell Owens. Barber had been agent-less for a little spell, having been on a search for a few weeks.
Rosenhaus said he spoke with Cowboys VP Stephen Jones on Tuesday and hopes to have some talks with the club about a new contract when the time is right. Barber is scheduled to be a restricted free agent following the season. At the very least the Cowboys will have to put the first- or second-round tender on Barber next off-season.
Barber joins a stable of stud running backs represented by Rosenhaus and his brother, Jason: Edgerrin James, Frank Gore, Fred Taylor, Willis McGahee, Clinton Portis and, interestingly, Julius Jones’ brother, Thomas.
Rosenhaus has taken some hits for his “next question,” press conference when Owens was in Philadelphia, but he is good at what he does and there is a reason why players sign with him (DMN).
What could this mean for Barber? I wouldn’t look too much into this, but just the fact that you have Rosenhaus in your corner means, you could be looking at getting paid. In Barber’s case, he will get paid, and why not. Barber is SOLID and quickly emerging as one of the league’s elite running backs.
