QB Romo doing his part to convince Cowboys to keep Murray, Bryant
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/23/15) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said Friday he is doing everything in his power to convince owner Jerry Jones to lock up running back DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant to long-term contracts, per The Dallas Morning News.
“I’m pretty consistently [talking to Jones], and everyone around the building, about bringing them both back,” Romo said on 103.3 [KESN-FM]. “I think everybody understands how great these guys are and how lucky we are to have them.
“Any time you get talented guys where you can put more than two on one side of the ball, you get three, four, if you’re lucky enough to ever get five, it’s one of those things where if you can put a group like that together you can make a run and be very difficult for teams to deal with for years.
“I think that’s what you’re trying to build ultimately is to have sustained success. We have an opportunity to have that.”
DeMarco Murray understands Cowboys' tough decision
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(1/21/15) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray reacted to owner Jerry Jones' comments regarding the tough challenge the team faces in keeping both him and wide receiver Dez Bryant, saying he understands the "business aspect" of the situation, ESPN.com reports.
"Those guys know how I am as a person and I understand that business aspect," Murray said. "I don’t get butt-hurt. I don’t get my feelings hurt. I believe in myself and what I’m capable of doing and whoever it is I’m playing for next year, I know I’m going to make a huge impact."
Murray added that he would love to return to the Cowboys in 2015 but acknowledged that several factors will be considered before he makes a decision on his next contract.
"Obviously I love playing with these guys, love playing for Jerry, love playing for Jason [Garrett]," Murray said. "He’s a helluva coach, a helluva guy. The things I’ve learned from him and [Jason Witten] in the four years I’ve been here, I’m very gracious and appreciative of it. If the chips fall that way, I’m excited and would love to come back. I don’t know what’s going to happen, so we’ll see ... I’ve thought about a lot of things I haven’t told anyone yet, not even my agent or not even my family. You can sit back and look at the pros and cons of many different situations and you think of yourself and think of your family in these situations."
Murray rushed for a league-high 1,845 yards on 392 carries and 13 touchdowns, adding 57 receptions for 416 yards in the passing game. However, the running back also lost five fumbles during the regular season.
Jerry Jones: Tough to sign both Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(1/15/15) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said even with a salary cap increase, it will be a "challenge" to re-sign both wideout Dez Bryant and running back DeMarco Murray, reports the Dallas Morning News. Both stars are impending free agents.
Dallas could use the franchise tag on Bryant, who caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns. The tag for receivers cost $12.3 million this season.
Murray led the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards. He reportedly turned down a four-year, $16 million offer from the team.
Report: Cowboys offered Murray $16 million over four years
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/13/15) The Cowboys and running back DeMarco Murray have reportedly already begun the negotiating process. The Cowboys reportedly offered Murray a four-year deal worth a little over $16 million, according to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
The offer would make Murray the eighth-highest paid running back in football, behind Adrian Peterson ($12.75 million), LeSean McCoy ($9.75 million), Matt Forte ($7 million), Arian Foster ($6 million), Marshawn Lynch ($5 million), Jamaal Charles ($4.45 million), and Jonathan Stewart ($4.25 million) on base salary, according to Sportstrac.
Murray led the league in rushing in 2014, rushing for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray not worrying about future
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(1/12/15) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray said Monday while cleaning out his locker he is not thinking about his future yet.
"I’m not worried about my future," Murray said. "I just lost a big game. The biggest game of my life and just not worried about it right now, just going to relax with my family and get away from it for a little bit."
Murray ran for 123 yards on Sunday in the Cowboys' 26-21 loss to the Packers. He totaled 1,845 in the regular season.
Director of player personnel Stephen Jones said Monday getting the coaching staff in order is a higher priority than re-signing Murray at the beginning of the offseason.
“Our No. 1 priority here right now is to get our coaches signed and get our staff in place,” Jones said. “We’ll sit down with our coaching staff, our personnel staff and really start to look at the full body of work of each and every player on our team, how they affect our cap and what decisions we need to make so we can make the next step next year. We really like the foundation of this football team.”
|Finally, we saw what DeMarco Murray could do when healthy, and he was a star in 2013. We're hoping he has a solid encore performance this year. Murray played in a career-high 14 games (he missed two games with a knee injury) and set career highs in carries (217), rushing yards (1,121), rushing touchdowns (nine), receptions (53), receiving yards (350) and receiving touchdowns (one). He finished as the No. 7 Fantasy running back in standard leagues, and we're expecting another big year from him in 2014. There are always going to be injury concerns with Murray, who missed nine games through the first two seasons of his career. But he has 1,500 total yards, double digits in touchdowns potential, and we like him as a No. 1 running back worth a pick in Round 2. The addition of Scott Linehan as offensive coordinator could help Murray as a receiver, and if he stays healthy another big year should be a definite possibility.
