QB Romo doing his part to convince Cowboys to keep Murray, Bryant


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/23/2015) 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
(1/21/2015) 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
(1/15/2015) 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
(1/13/2015) 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
(1/12/2015) 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.”

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/25/2014) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray won't practice Thursday. He was sent home because he's sick, reports the Dallas Morning News.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys still feed DeMarco Murray heavily


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Despite undergoing surgery less than a week ago, the Cowboys still got running back DeMarco Murray 20-plus carries Sunday, in a 42-7 win over the Colts in Week 16.

Murray played with a protective pad on his hand, but didn't seem too troubled by it. The fumble-prone back extended his streak of games without putting the ball on the turf to seven games, despite carrying it 22 times. He managed to rush for just 58 yards, but found the end zone for the 12th time in the win.

The Cowboys clinched a playoff spot Sunday, but they will still be fighting for seeding in Week 17. Still, they might want to take advantage of the opportunity to limit his workload against Washington. Keep an eye on the team's plans throughout the week, but Murray proved Sunday he is well worth starting as long as he plans on playing. 


RB DeMarco Murray plays 30 snaps and scores Week 16


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Murray was limited by his surgically-repaired left hand. He primarily carried the ball with his right and was unable to use his stiff-arm. But he appeared to emerge unscathed.

Having locked up the NFC East, the Cowboys visit Washington in the regular-season finale. It's unclear how much Murray will play in that game.


Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray active against Colts


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) One week after breaking a bone in his left hand, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is active for Sunday's game against the Colts. Murray, who was listed as questionable, will play with a protective pad on his surgically-repaired hand.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cowboys are nervous about Murray's ability to pass-protect. Murray leads the NFL with 1,687 rushing yards. He'll be backed up by Joseph Randle and Lance Dunbar.

Dallas is favored by 3 or 3.5 points at Vegas sportsbooks.


Report: DeMarco Murray to play with protective pad Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is expected to play Sunday against the Colts, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports.

The plan is for Murray to play with a pad on his surgically-repaired hand, which he debuted during the team's final walkthru Saturday. The Cowboys remain concerned with how his injury holds up Sunday, and if they clinch a playoff spot in Week 16, Murray could be a candidate to sit out Week 17 to rest his injured hand.

Murray leads the league with 1,687 yards on 351 carries through 14 games, which is the most in franchise history. He also has 54 receptions for 395 yards.

The Cowboys remain a 3 1/2-point home favorite over Indianapolis.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

"He's tough, he has a high pain threshold and he feels good. I wouldn't be surprised if he plays," a source told Rapoport.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Cowboys are expected to leave it up to Murray, in which case he is expected to opt to play on Sunday.
