DeMarco Murray Signs with the Philadelphia Eagles
Will he or won't he? That's the question many Dallas Cowboys fans have been asking on wether or not DeMarco Murray will stay with the Cowboys. Well, now we know the answer and it is that Murray will be now playing against the Cowboys two times a year.
DeMarco Murray has signed a 5 year $42 million deal to play for the Philadelphia Eagles. $21 Million of that is guaranteed.
Murray lead the NFL in rushing last season and was named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year. The Cowboys appeared unwilling to pay Murray the money he wanted and now he will play for a NFC East rival.
In the last week, the Eagles have been very busy. They traded LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills, they decided not to re-sign Jeremy Maclin and in a move that stunned everyone, they trade quarterback Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams for Sam Bradford.
Murray and Bradford were college teammates at Oklahoma and apparently Murray reached out to Eagles coach Chip Kelly about possibly playing with Bradford again, which is now gonna happen.
The Cowboys have the best offensive line in the NFL, but who is gonna fill the void that has been made with Murray's departure? The Cowboys still have Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar on the roster but they don't have a true starting running back.
