Draft Scout DeMarco Murray News
03/12/15 - RB DeMarco Murray has left the Cowboys for the Eagles. Owner Jerry Jones has blamed it on the salary cap.
"We have great appreciation for his skills, and if there was no salary cap in place, DeMarco would be a Cowboy," Jones said in a statement issued by the team. "This came down to an allocation of dollars within the management of the salary cap.
"Obviously there is emotion involved in these decisions, but it is critical that there be must be discipline involved as well. If it were a question of having an open checkbook with no salary cap constraints, we all know things would have worked out differently.
"We have recently made significant commitments to top players who are currently on the team, specifically at key positions such as quarterback, left tackle and wide receiver, and we were comfortable with the offer that we made to DeMarco to include him in that structure.".
Eagles coach Chip Kelly thinks he got a bargain in Murray — and it's a bargain he's surprised his team was able to bag.
"I thought he would be out of our price range," Kelly said.
As it turned out, the Eagles were able to get Murray for what's being described as a five-year, $42 million contract with $21 million guaranteed.
03/04/15 - RB DeMarco Murray is the team's biggest priority now that Dez Bryant has been franchised. The Cowboys want him back but will not break the bank for a running back. The Cowboys will let him hit the market and test his value after a record-setting season.
01/12/15 - RB DeMarco Murray completed a record-breaking season with 25 carries for 123 yards against the Packers in the NFC Divisional playoffs but he also had a crucial fumble that led to a Green Bay field goal. Murray now potentially heads off into free agency, and there is no guarantee he will be with the Cowboys next season.
01/09/15 - RB DeMarco Murray is averaging 78 yards a game since fracturing his hand against the Eagles in Week 15. "The concern was really the first week and what he was going to be able to do in that game when the contact happened," head coach Jason Garrett said. "I think he proved early on he was going to be able to play and be functional in all aspects of the game. It really hasn't been an issue for him. Any reduction in carries is almost coincidence, maybe by game plan or what happens over the course of the game. He has been functional right from the start. He has played really well."
Murray said he feels good and will continue to wear a protective pad.
"I've worn the same thing, because it feels comfortable for me," Murray said. "I haven't changed anything. I'm not going to change anything now, because it's working for me."
12/29/14 - RB DeMarco Murray rushed for 100 yards and a touchdown against the , allowing him to secure the NFL rushing title with 1,845 yards and break Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith's franchise record for rushing yards in a season of 1,773 set in 1995.
