The St. Louis Rams appear to be one of the likely future employers of veteran RB Marion Barber, according to Vaughn McClure of The Chicago Tribune:
Believe it or not, I've already heard the Rams and Eagles as possible landing spots for Marion Barber. But he has to get released first.— vaughn mcclure (@vxmcclure23) March 23, 2012
Last year, the Rams got 15 starts out of their star RB Steven Jackson, the third straight season of 15 or more starts. But the soon-to-be 29-year-old running back has had a number of injury problems in his career.
Barber is currently under contract with the Chicago Bears, but given their recent signing of RB Michael Bush, the team seems unlikely to retain Barber, who is owed a moderate payout in 2012.
