The BarBEARian Finds New Home In Chicago

Move over Miami, the Bears are now becoming the new destination for former Cowboys.

First it was Roy Williams and Sam Hurd, basically headed to the Windy City on the same day. Now, it's Marion Barber, who has agreed to join the Bears. Barber will likely officially sign his deal on Sunday, but recently agreed to the two-year deal.

Barber, who was officially cut on Thursday to save about $4.75 million on the salary cap, is coming off his career-low in rushing yards with just 374 and four touchdowns. He did leave the Cowboys as the club's sixth-leading rusher all-time with 4,358 yards with 47 touchdowns.

In 2008, the Cowboys lost nearly a dozen players, coaches, scouts and front-office personnel when Bill Parcells, Jeff Ireland and Tony Sparano went to Miami to run the Dolphins.

Now, at least from an offensive standpoint, the Bears are starting to pluck a few players from the Cowboys. And wasn't it Chicago hosting the NFC Championship Game and the Cowboys that were 6-10?
