Barber & Newman sign extensions for Cowboys

The 2008 NFL season is coming up soon and I’m prepared to see how my team will perform this season.  The Dallas Cowboys have been my all time favorite NFL team ever since I can remember.  Being a long time Dallas fan himself, and creating a mini fan (me), I remember when my dad would have super bowl parties at the house and being able to be there to celebrate with him, friends, and family for a few of their super bowl wins in the 90’s.

Exciting enough, the latest breaking news about the team is that two Pro Bowlers, Marion Barber (RB) and Terence Newman (CB) have recently signed extensions with the Cowboys.  Of course, the contracts were not signed without giving Jerry Jones a run for his money.  Just yesterday, Marion Barber extended his contract for seven years at $45 mil, and Newman a six year contract for $50.2 million!  Luckily enough, the boys signed their extensions just before a salary cap rule was passed by the league.

If there is one sport I love to watch, it has to be NFL football.  I’m excited for the 2008 season and even more excited to see Barber again, after a great season in 2007.  I’d love to be able to celebrate another super bowl win with my dad sometime in the near future, so I’m hoping this roughly $95 million that Jones has spent will be worth it in the end.  I have not been able to attend a Dallas Cowboy’s game, but now that I’m employed with one of the top ticket brokers in the country, I will surely make it a point to attend one this coming season.  I know there are many long-time Cowboys fans just like me, and I hope that you all get to experience a game live if you haven’t already.  TicketCity has already listed inventory for the 2008 season and is always happy to help you get there!  Go to and place your order online for your very own Dallas Cowboys tickets, or call a sales associate at 1-800-SOLD-OUT!
