Possible trade being talked about between Pack and Cowboys for RB Barber?

The Packers could use some help at the running back spot, and one report says that there’s talk with the Cowboys about running back Marion Barber, a player that could be moved by Tuesday’s trade deadline with the Cowboys at 1-4. had the following about a possible trade that could find the Pack and Cowboys making a deal.

An NFL source said the Packers have had talks with the Dallas Cowboys about “one of” their running backs. The 1-4 Cowboys rotate Felix Jones, Tashard Choice and Marion Barber, and ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Sunday morning that it’s Barber that the Packers and Cowboys have discussed.

It’s unclear what the Cowboys’ asking price is for Barber, who had 10 carries for 31 yards in Sunday’s loss to Minnesota and has carried 52 times for 175 yards this season. He has been very good on short-yardage plays, going 5-for-5 on third- or fourth-and-1 plays Sunday and 9-for-9 in those situations on the season.

Barber has 175 yards on 52 carries with one TD this season. He did get the start on Sunday vs the Vikings, but only had 31 yards on 10 carries with a long of six. His longest carry this season has been just 12 yards.

    I feel that this would be a good move on the packers part to get a good strong running back that runs hard on every down. This type of a move would only help are passing game where people would start wondering about are we gong to run the ball or pass. The move also helps us to have two good running backs just for taking the pressure off one running back and keeping both of them fresh for the fourth quarter.
