General News (Tue Jan 27): is getting support from Tony Romo to stay with the team long term. Romo said he is consistently talking to owner Jerry Jones about bringing him back in 2015. The Cowboys have to bring Murray back, right? We can't imagine him signing with another team after the season he had with Dallas in 2014. He's the engine to the offense, and it would be incredibly difficult to replace him. Murray is set to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, but we feel the Cowboys will find a way to bring him back.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 18 vs DET (19 / 75 / 1 rush, 4 / 3 / 22 / 0 rec)

Despite 97 total yards, Murray was held in check by the Detroit front seven and limited to a handful of chunk gains. When Murray had a head of steam, he churned out yards after contact. However, the Lions stacked up the line of scrimmage on a majority of Murray's between-the-tackles looks. Murray threw in a dropped outlet target for good measure in a non-descript opening half. In the second half, Murray balanced out Dallas' offense during their comeback effort. Murray ripped off gains of 10 and 14 yards respectively, including running over a defender to finish off one of the runs. Murray converted a red zone carry, but was called back by a Jason Witten holding penalty at the point of attack. On the same drive, Murray was stuffed on a third down goal line prior to converting on a fourth down plunge.

2014 Week 19 vs GB (25 / 123 / 1 rush, 2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)

The first half DeMarco Murray was filled with hard yards and short-yardage conversions in the playoff loss in Green Bay. Murray rarely saw a well-blocked hole at the line of scrimmage and the Packers front seven penetrated the backfield on occasion. Murray did, however, convert three third-and-one opportunities, including one in field goal range. On Murray's highlight run of the first half, he turned a loss into a three-yard gain with a broken tackle behind the line of scrimmage. In the third quarter, a promising Dallas drive stalled with Murray losing a fumble near midfield. Without a rogue arm knocking the ball away Murray had a wide open lane for a substantial gain. Green Bay got a field goal out of the short field, eating away at Dallas' tenuous lead. Murray finally found running room with a well-blocked edge, nearly scoring at the pylon. Murray finished off the drive with a goal line touchdown. Two more plays highlighted Murray's strong playoff performance. He absorbed a hit at the line of scrimmage, spinning away for five yards. Later, Murray benefited from the strong blocking of Dez Bryant downfield plus a huge hole for 30 yards.

Cowboys | Tony Romo would have taken pay cut (Tue Mar 31, 08:56 PM) - Dallas Cowboys QB Tony Romo said Tuesday, March 31, he would have taken a pay cut in order for the team to retain RB DeMarco Murray (Eagles). 'DeMarco ended up asking me, 'Why don't you take a pay cut?'' Romo said. 'I was like, 'I will. I will take a pay cut to go do this.' I was like, 'They're going to restructure me and the whole thing, 'that's the same thing in some ways just for salary-cap purposes.'

Our View: C'est la vie. In the end, the Cowboys never approached Romo about a a pay cut and Murray left for a five-year deal from the rival Philadelphia Eagles. We'll see if the Cowboys draft a guy like Melvin Gordon (Wisconsin) in the first round of the draft to replace Murray.

Eagles | Chip Kelly favors one-cut runners (Wed Mar 25, 09:58 AM) - The Philadelphia Eagles traded RB LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills because head coach Chip Kelly desires a one-cut running back, according to Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Lurie praised McCoy as a player, but the move was not financially driven. Kelly felt he could garner more production from a different running back or two. Lurie used the term 'power spread' on multiple occasions to describe Kelly's offense.

Our View: The Eagles now have an incredible group of running backs to work with. DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles and Ryan Mathews figure to share the workload.
