LAKE FOREST, ILL. - The Chicago Bears made a big move to bolster their offense on Saturday by coming to terms with veteran running back Marion Barber on a two-year deal.

Barber is the third former Cowboy to join the Bears for this upcoming season. Wide receiver Roy Williams inked a one-year contract Friday and fellow wideout Sam Hurd is also on his way to Chicago.

Barber played in 13 games for Dallas last year, rushing for a career-low 374 yards and four touchdowns.

The emergence of Felix Jones and Tashard Choice allowed the Cowboys to get rid of Barber.

Selected by Dallas in the fourth round of the 2005 draft, Barber carried the ball 1,042 times for 4,358 yards and 47 touchdowns over 88 career games with the Cowboys.
