As if there was any doubt about the polarizing effect Terrell Owens had on the Dallas Cowboys locker room, his release has now compelled the ever-silent Marion Barber to speak. Barber recently broke his silence to say this about Owens' release:
"[Critics] are trying to make [Owens] into something he's not," Barber said. "I felt the same way like everybody else, but then I met the man. Once you know who he is, he's a great guy." Barber later called the move a "shock."
There is no doubt Owens has friends in this locker room. I hope everyone can deal with his release personally before team activities begin. With all the so-called "bad guys" gone this locker room may still be divided.
