reports that Barber worked out yesterday with the Dolphins.of FOX Sports
According to Glazer’s sources, Barber looked good. But not good enough for the Dolphins to sign him immediately. They first want to see how their current group of running backs look.
The 36-year-old Barber, who retired after the 2006 season, could serve as something of a role model for Dolphins running back
Reggie Bush. Barber was a third-down back and punt returner early in his career (like Bush) and later became an every-down back (like the Dolphins hope Bush can do).
But for now, the Dolphins are just looking at Barber, not signing him to be Bush’s teammate.
