Report: Cowboys to let DeMarco Murray test free agency


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(6:06 pm ET) The Cowboys will let RB DeMarco Murray test the free-agent market, according to a report from Fox Sports Southwest

Cowboys VP Stephen Jones said that negotiations with Murray's agents have been "slow". 

Jones said that Murray "is probably going to get some peace and see what's out in the market, and then we'll talk and see. I do believe deep down he'd love to stay in Dallas."

Murray rushed for 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns last season. 


Jerry Jones: I want Murray to be a Cowboy for his entire career


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sure sounds like he wants to get DeMarco Murray back in Dallas in 2015. Jones said Saturday he wants Murray to be a Cowboy for his entire career. The only thing preventing that is figuring out how much to pay the 27-year-old.

"In a legitimate negotiation you usually have both of them thinking ranges," Jones said to the Dallas Morning News. "You have both of them in brackets. You have both of them thinking brackets and within the parameters how you get a deal done. And you can usually tell if one or the other is outside the parameters significantly and then there really is - usually both parties to a negotiation know because they've bracketed and realize they're not in sync with the bracket, then they know for whatever the reasons something else has got to play in."

Murray ran for  league-high 1,845 yards on 392 carries and 13 touchdowns, adding 57 receptions for 416 yards in the passing game.

"Murray is such a warrior and Murray is such a horse, he'd actually get upset if you took him out of the game," Jones said. "But it was [not] the thing to do for Murray to let those guys have more touches. … I don't think we would go into a season now with Murray thinking that he was going to have the load that he had last year. I don't believe we would."


Jones: Cowboys will stick to run game regardless of Murray's status


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told reporters that regardless of what plays out with DeMarco Murray, Dallas will continue to emphasize on running the football in 2015.

Murray ran for a league-leading 1,845 yards in the regular season and was named offensive player of the year. Although he wants to stick to the blueprint of running the ball, Jones noted that Murray's carries and yards per carry average diminished at the end of 2014, and that he won't give his workhorse back the same load again if he's back with the Cowboys in 2015, per the Star-Telegram.

Murray, who reportedly turned down a four-year, $16 million offer from the team earlier this offseason, is set to hit the open market on March 10.


Stephen Jones: Cowboys eyeing franchise tag on WR Dez Bryant


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told the Dallas Morning News on Tuesday that he plans to meet with running back DeMarco Murray's representative, Bill Johnson, this week. However, he failed to reveal whether or not he would have a sit-down with Tom Condon, one of wideout Dez Bryant's representatives.

Jones also indicated that the Cowboys are more interested in placing the franchise tag on Bryant than Murray.

"Right now all things being equal, it's leaning more Dez with the franchise than it is not," Jones said. "But that doesn't mean it will stay that way.

"We don't ever want to give up on a long-term deal," Jones said. "It's something we worked on all of last year and it kind of cooled off once we got into the season. We'll continue to see what our options are and things happen quickly as you go along. Things can go along with a lot not going on, but all of a sudden it happens."

Bryant has expressed his interest in staying with the team in 2015, and a franchise tag could give both sides enough time to negotiate a long-term contract. According to Ed Werder of ESPN, he is unlikely to participate in offseason activities if he is tagged. Last season, Bryant caught 88 passes for 1,320 yards and 16 touchdowns. The tag for receivers cost $12.3 million this season.


Cowboys' DeMarco Murray not revealing much about free agency


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2015) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray wants to stay in Dallas. At least, that's what he said Tuesday at an event, according to ESPN.

"Obviously I think they want me here," Murray said. "I want to be here. It's just finding the ... just what helps them, what helps me. Things like that. I think both sides want to be here, so I think we'll see where it goes."

Murray is planning on being very involved in the upcoming contract negotiations. 

"I'm very patient so ... if that's the process I have to go through, then that's the process I have to go through," Murray said.

Murray ran for a league-leading 1,845 yards in the regular season and was named offensive player of the year.

"At the end of the day, it's all about respect, and I think different people show their appreciation in different ways," Murray said. "I don't need a pat on the back. I don't need someone telling me how good I am on a constant basis and whatnot like that. I understand my value, so to speak, and I understand what I bring to the table."


Jerry Jones on Bryant/Murray: 'You can try to have it all'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/8/2015) Cowboys owner Jerry Jones described keeping both wideout Dez Bryant and running back DeMarco Murray as "a big challenge," but did not rule it out, reports the Dallas Morning News.

“You can’t have it all," he told NBC5 at an event Friday night. "But on the other hand, you can try to have it all. You have to make sure you’re making the right decisions on who gets the assets, which in this particular case, it’s the room under the salary cap.”

Bryant, who caught 16 touchdown passes, and Murray, the NFL's leading rusher, are both scheduled to hit free agency. The Cowboys could use the franchise tag on Bryant.

DeMarco on free agency: 'At end of day it's about winning a Super Bowl'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/29/2015) Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was on The Dan Patrick Show on Thursday talking about his thought process heading into free agency. Murray obviously said all the right things about wanting to return to Dallas, and hoping the team can sign him and Dez Bryant, who will also be a free agent, to long-term contracts.

However, Murray was also very forthcoming about the notion of playing for another NFL team.

“Yeah. I understand the business aspect of it,” he said, per The Dallas Morning News. “There’s no hard feelings if we can’t reach a deal together. But hopefully we can and we’ll see what happens.”

Murray, who rushed for a career-best 1,845 yards in 2014, will likely sign the most-lucrative contract of his career this offseason. But he added money won't be the only factor in who he signs with.

“I don’t think about [the one big contract], I’m thinking about winning a Super Bowl,” Murray said. “What’s best for me to win a Super Bowl and win one now. At the end of the day, the money is irrelevant to some degree. But you definitely want to get what you’re worth and things like that.

“At the end of the day it’s about winning a Super Bowl.”


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.

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

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.
