Sid Hartman of the Star Tribune reports: “Dominique Barber, the former Gophers free safety who was drafted by the Houston Texans, recorded six tackles in the team’s first exhibition game, a 19-16 victory over Denver on Saturday. His older brother, former Gophers running back Marion Barber III, carried only four times for 24 yards in the Dallas Cowboys’ 31-17 loss to San Diego on Saturday.”
battleredtexan of Scout.com indicates; “…I’ve heard some good things coming out of Camp about [Dom] Barber. They say he is a good “in the box” safety that will play well against the run but will probably struggle in coverage, at least at first. I look for him to be a standout special teams player for us this year and provide depth at one of the safety positions. He’ll get plenty of playing time in Preseason to show what he’s got.”
Good to hear some positive things about Dom. I expect that Marion will perform as well or better than last year despite signing a huge new contract with the Dallas Cowboys last year.
