Jerry Jones: Darren McFadden changed Cowboys draft plans
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/7/15) Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has declared that the presence of Darren McFadden is the reason his team did not draft a running back despite having lost stud DeMarco Murray to the rival Eagles.
McFadden signed a two-year deal with Dallas. It calls for just $200,000 in guaranteed money, but could be worth as much as $5.85 million, per ESPN.
The scatback has been a disappointment in the NFL. In seven years with Oakland, he exceeded 1,000 yards rushing just once and has 25 touchdowns. He has not averaged more than 3.4 yards per carry since 2011, but the change of scenery and far better surrounding offensive talent could give his career a jump-start.
At least Jones believes so.
"McFadden made a big difference here," he said. "His availability - make no bones about it - we didn't know that McFadden was going to be available when we initially started to think about this year and in our decision regarding that. ... It might have been a little different story had we not had McFadden on our roster in this draft."
Cowboys RB Darren McFadden maybe used as kick returner in 2015
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/3/15) Cowboys running back Darren McFadden could see an expanded role next season, as a kick or punt returner, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Wide receiver Dwayne Harris left during the offseason for the Giants, leaving a vacant spot in the return game.
"We have some guys we feel who can go return right now both punt returners and kickoff returners," coach Jason Garrett said. "And hopefully we'll get a chance to bring some guys in college free agent type guys we targeted as well. We like the guys we have and we feel like we can go play right now with them and also create some competition with some younger guys."
McFadden was a kick returner for the Raiders in 2014 where he had three returns for 59 yards.
"He certainly could," Garrett said. "He's done it in his past."
Cowboys' Darren McFadden: The world hasn't seen the best of me
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/3/15) After struggling the past three seasons in Oakland, Cowboys running back Darren McFadden is ready for a bounce-back campaign. He said in an appearance on NFL Network on Friday that the world has not "seen the best of Darren McFadden."
McFadden rushed for 1,620 yards in 38 games (31 starts) over the last three seasons in Oakland before signing a two-year deal worth up to $5.85 million this offseason, with the hopes of replacing DeMarco Murray in Dallas.
McFadden expressed his lack of concern over the possibility of the Cowboys acquiring Vikings running back Adrian Peterson via trade, and revealed that the team will likely add another running back in the draft.
"It wouldn't surprise me at all," McFadden said. "I'm a guy who's been in the league seven, eight years now. A team doesn't want to just put their everything on a guy. ... I feel like they're going to take a running back, and it's not going to be something that changes how I feel about the team. I'm a competitive guy, it'll bring out the best in me."
Cowboys sign Darren McFadden to two-year deal
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(3/13/15) The Cowboys moved quickly after the departure of DeMarco Murray, agreeing to terms on a two-year deal with former Raiders running back Darren McFadden, reports Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Friday. The deal with worth up to $5.85 million with $200,000 in bonus incentives, per Todd Archer of ESPN.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was reportedly tempted to draft McFadden out of Arkansas in 2008, but instead he went to the Raiders at No. 4 in the draft. McFadden, 27, totaled 4,247 yards and 25 rushing touchdowns in his seven-year run with the Raiders. He played in all 16 games for the first time in his career last season, totaling 534 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.
He joins fellow running backs Lance Dunbar, Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams in Dallas.

Raiders not expected to re-sign RB Darren McFadden
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(1/28/15) With expectations sky-high for Latavius Murray in 2015, the Raiders aren't expected to re-sign impending free agent running back Darren McFadden, reports CSNBayArea.com. McFadden, 27, averaged 3.4 yards per carry this season and has not had a good year since 2011.
Oakland also is expected to part ways with 29-year-oold running back Maurice Jones-Drew, saving the team $2.5 million.
Murray, 25, averaged 5.2 yards on his 82 carries and will enter next season as the starter.
|Fantasy owners are never going to get over the disappointment of what Darren McFadden has been the past four seasons, but there's a chance for him to resurrect his career going from Oakland to Dallas. McFadden looked like a blossoming Fantasy star after his 2010 breakout season with more than 1,600 total yards and 10 touchdowns. But injuries and poor play has marred his production the past four years, and now he's looking for a fresh start with the Cowboys. He's not expected to be the primary ballcarrier in Dallas, but McFadden should have the chance for quality production when given a chance. The Cowboys have one of the best offensive lines in the NFL, which helped DeMarco Murray dominate last season. We'll see what role McFadden plays this season, but he's worth drafting with a late-round pick in all leagues. If he ends up getting a hefty workload this year, he could turn back the clock to 2010, which would make Fantasy owners happy -- if they are willing to trust him again.
