One of the biggest stories of the offseason so far has been the new look from Marion Barber, who has shed some noticeable pounds and appears lighter, quicker, and faster than ever before.
Not to be outdone, Felix Jones, the running back who is pushing for Barber's starting spot, also has somewhat of a new appearance as well. Only Jones went the other way this offseason, bulking up a little in his upper body.
By design? Not exactly, although Jones said he welcomes the physical change.
"That's just how it works out sometimes," said the third-year back, who was jokingly asked if he and Barber are switching roles, making Jones the new short-yardage back. "I'm not going to say all of that. It almost just happened the way it did. I was in the weight room working out and all of sudden, I started seeing more muscles."
Let the training camp battle begin! Look for Felix Jones and Marion Barber to split carries.
