Boy, that CBA vote sure set the dominoes in motion. Cornerback Terence Newman: six years, $50.2 million, $22.5 million guaranteed. Running back Marion Barber: seven years, $45 million, $16 million guaranteed. There was some debate among the Outsiders about the wisdom of investing so much money in a running back, but Barber is young (he turns 25 next month), he has never carried more than 204 times in a season, and the Cowboys have Felix Jones to ensure that Barber is never struck by the Curse of 370.
