Felix Jones May Wrest The Starting Spot From Marion Barber For The Cowboys This Season
Don’t let the new stadium fool you, Jerry Jones still knows how to take advantage of a good deal when he sees one. The Dallas Cowboys‘ owner said the team is seriously considering going with Felix Jones as its starting running back, instead of higher priced Marion Barber. Barber is still expected to get significant carries for the Cowboys, even though Tashard Choice may be a cheaper and more viable alternative. Barber is less than two years into a seven-year, $45 million contract with $16 million guaranteed which makes a trade highly unlikely.
