    Related items As of Tuesday night, Tashard Choice had one less friend on the Cowboys roster. Jerry Jones reportedly released running back Marion Barber earlier in the day, slimming down a backfield that already includes Choice, Felix Jones and rookie DeMarco Murray.

    The move will likely equate to more carries for Choice, who had 66 rushes last season and 64 in 2009. However, Choice wasn’t celebrating the departure of Barber during a Tuesday radio interview with Galloway and Company (KESN-FM Dallas).

    “I always had positive and great things to say about (Barber) because I love him as a person, Choice said. “He was somebody that I was under the wing of, somebody that helped me go through a lot of things and taught me about being a professional athlete and what to do on and off the field. So it’s sort of sad. More sad for me because I liked being around him everyday. … I’m going to miss him a lot because that’s my guy.”

    His downfall will be that he doesn't play special teams. Phillip Tanner will make the roster for the #3 RB spot behind Murray and Jones.

    its about time choice is going to get his chance to shine! It would be a big mistake if we got ride of him. if we traded him we would not get a draft pick worth what he could do on the field. :starspin
