Not too long ago, Marion Barber was among the most popular Dallas Cowboys around with his signature power running with those dreadlocks hanging from the back of his helmet.

Now, Barber is ending his career after seven season according to CBSSports. He spent six of those seasons in Dallas, before moving on to the Chicago Bears in 2011.

Barber, 28, finishes his career with 4,780 yards on 53 touchdowns and just nine career fumbles, which includes his most recent and infamous one with the Bears coming toward the end of the regular season against the Denver Broncos.

It's because of that play that Barber may live in infamy in Chicago, but he will most likely remain a fan-favorite in Dallas.

In his most productive season with the Cowboys, Barber 975 yards on the ground to go with 10 touchdowns.
