Words from the father

Cowboys new big-time millionaire running back Marion Barber called his dad after signing his deal on Tuesday night. Barber and his father by the same name, who played running back in the NFL, are very tight. When he called, his father took a second to find the words after the emotion then offered some advice for his ever-humble son.

''He was speechless,'' MBIII said. ''He was telling me to keep working and keep staying focused and don't let this bring your game down but elevate it.''
