Eagles' Jason Peters wants offensive line to help DeMarco Murray


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) Eagles offensive tackle Jason Peters knows there will be a ton of pressure on the team's offensive line to help newly acquired running back DeMarco Murray duplicate or surpass his incredible rushing numbers from last year.

Murray was last season's NFL Offensive Player of the Year after leading the league with 1,845 rushing yards. He did so as a Cowboy and behind one of the best offensive lines the NFL had last season, so Peters realizes all eyes will be on the Eagles line to help Murray continue his dominance.

"It's a big weight on our shoulders. He was the rushing champ last year. He almost broke the record. For him to come here and not duplicate that, that would discredit us a little bit with the Dallas offensive line. We've got to make sure he gets his yards," Peters said. "That's a big challenge. The Dallas offensive line is good. We're just better. We're going to make sure he gets his yards."


Eagles' Shurmur: RBs Murray, Mathews to 'share the role'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2015) Eagles offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur revealed on Wednesday that the team plans to divide the backfield touches between free-agent signees DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, the Delaware County Daily Times reports.

"They’re two really fine players," Shurmur said at a coaches availability. "They’re two guys that have been starters in places that they’ve been and they’re going to come here and kind of share the role. I think that’s terrific that that’s their mindset. It shows us that you’ve got really, really fine players that understand it’s important to be a good teammate. Any time you can add good players to a unit you make yourself better because you need more than one to play the year."

Murray signed a five-year, $40-million contract after a breakthrough season with the Cowboys in 2014. Mathews, a former first-round pick, signed a three-year, $11-million deal after being plagued by injuries in 2014.

"As time’s gone on I think at running back, I really believe it takes a village," Shurmur said. "If you play the season you need one, two, three and maybe four guys. They’re a key part of what we do offensively. So to have a group that we feel has improved here in the offseason, now it’s just a matter of getting them all up to speed as quickly as we can so they can master what we’re doing."


Eagles RB Murray to Randle: 'Hopefully he can taste some of that meat'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(5/28/2015) Eagles running back DeMarco Murray and his former teammate Joseph Randle have an interesting back-and-forth going on, per csnphilly.com.

Randle, who backed up Murray as he lead the NFL in rushing, has recently said Murray "left a lot of meat on the bone" last year. 

Murray rushed for 1,845 yards and 14 touchdowns last season, helping the Cowboys become one of the most potent offenses in the league.

"Hopefully he can taste some of that meat this year," Murray said of his former teammate.“They’re a good team. Hopefully he can get a chance to run behind that line and do some good things. But I’m not worried about it. I didn’t hear about it until now. It’s not a big deal.”

The Cowboys will use a multi-running back system with Randle leading the way. He rushed for 343 yards and three touchdowns as Murray's backup last year.


Cowboys' Tony Romo: DeMarco Murray asked me to take a pay cut


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) Eagles running back DeMarco Murray was really hoping to remain with the Cowboys this offseason. So much so, he asked quarterback Tony Romo to take a pay cut to remain with the team, Romo said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday, per the Dallas Morning News.

"DeMarco ended up asking me, 'Why don't you take a pay cut?' I said, 'I will. I would take a pay cut to go do this,'" Romo said. "I was like, 'They're going to restructure me.' That's the same thing in some ways, just for the salary cap purposes. He was like, 'OK, now we're back to being friends again.' I would take $5 million less if meant getting him back.

"He knew that. It was just funny how he was literally worried about that part of it for a week. I'm like, 'That's not the reason.' I'm like, 'Obviously I'll restructure. I would even take a pay cut.' He was like, 'OK, we can be friends again.' It's amazing what you think about in those moments."


Owner: DeMarco Murray better fit than LeSean McCoy


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/25/2015) Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said the team traded running back LeSean McCoy to the Bills and replaced him with DeMarco Murray because Murray better fits Chip Kelly's system, reports Eagles 24/7.

"We’ve been talking about the asset value of LeSean for a long time because he wasn’t the style of runner that Chip prefers, but a great player," Lurie said.

"Getting players that fit more of what he’s all about in terms of their style of play. LeSean McCoy is a great running back -- all-time franchise leader. Great guy in every way. To maximize his power spread offense, he’s always admired the one-cut runners. That’s what he admired.

"You’ve gotta let a coach try to bring in the players that fit best what he’s all about to maximize what he’s trying to accomplish. It really boils down to that. You have a decision as an owner: Do you want to fight that? Or do want to adopt it? I went all out to try and get Chip as the coach, and I’m really happy we did. He’s got a great potential future, and I’m happy to be able to provide him the resources to be able to maximize what he’s all about."

The Eagles also signed running back Ryan Mathews in free agency, who is closer in style to Murray than McCoy.


Eagles plan to spread the ball around with Murray, Mathews, Sproles


(3/12/2015) After signing running backs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews on Thursday, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly made it clear that he plans on spreading the ball around in the running game. He also said that he doesn't envision Murray being a workhorse back in the Eagles offense.

Murray and Mathews will be added to a backfield that recently lost LeSean McCoy in a trade to the Bills, but the team still has Darren Sproles. The head coach states that Sproles will still remain an integral part of the offense.

"Darren (Sproles) is a Swiss army knife. You can use him in a million different ways", says Kelly.


Eagles make it official, announce DeMarco Murray's signing


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Frank Gore may have had second thoughts about Philadelphia but DeMarco Murray didn't. The Eagles announced early Thursday evening that the 2014 AP Offensive Player of the Year has signed his five-year contract with the franchise

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen previously reported that the deal will have a maximum value of $42 million with $21 million guaranteed. 

"It was never about the money...I could've taken that a long time ago," Murray said, via ESPN's Todd Archer. "It's about winning a Super Bowl [and] being fair."

Murray led the NFL in rushing with 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014 with the Cowboys. The Cowboys reportedly offered Murray a deal that averaged around $5 million per year.  

The Eagles also announced that former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews signed a three-year deal with the organization as well. 


Tony Romo on losing DeMarco Murray: 'Not an ideal situation'


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo seemed taken aback by running back DeMarco Murray's defection to the Eagles. "It just happened," he said, per the Dallas Morning News. "All the way up until today, I was still thinking we'd be able to keep DeMarco.

"Obviously, it's not an ideal situation. I'm losing a close friend, too, so that hurts. We have to trust in the process and the people making the decisions. We have salary cap implications and a bunch of other things that we have to decide. That plays a role. The Eagles obviously thought as highly of him as we did."

Murray led the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards last season, scoring 13 touchdowns.

Eagles announce three-year deal with RB Ryan Mathews


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) Free agent running back Ryan Mathews signed a three-year deal with the Eagles, the team announced. The team did not disclose the money, but reports indicate Mathews will receive $11.5 million.

Mathews joined Philly despite the team also landing DeMarco Murray, the reigning NFL rushing leader. Earlier reports suggested Mathews might back out of his agreement once it became clear the Eagles also were signing Murray.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport called Murray and Mathews an "incredible duo," but the crowded backfield also includes Darren Sproles and Chris Polk

An ankle injury limited Mathews to six games with San Diego last season, but in 2013 he rushed for 1,255 yards.

Report: Eagles to give DeMarco Murray $21 million guaranteed


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) The Eagles are expected to give running back DeMarco Murray a five-year contract worth a maximum total of $42 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen. 

Included in that deal will be $21 million guaranteed. 

According to NFL.com's Albert Breer, Murray's base salary over the five years adds up to $40 million. $18 million of it is fully guaranteed with $21 million in total guarantees. 

The Eagles are unlikely recipients of Murray's services, considering they had a deal in place for former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews. But Murray reportedly called Eagles coach Chip Kelly personally and expressed interest in joining his team.

From there, negotiations took off between the Eagles and Murray. Mathews has yet to sign any paperwork and could back out of the agreed upon deal. 

Behind the Cowboys' offensive line, Murray led the NFL in rushing with 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns. The Cowboys were reportedly offering Murray a contract that would average roughly $5 million per season. 

"It was never about the money...I could've taken that a long time ago," Murray said, via ESPN's Todd Archer. "It's about winning a Super Bowl [and] being fair."


Report: Cowboys 'know they've lost' RB Murray to Eagles


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(3/12/2015) Free agent running back DeMarco Murray is on his way to visit the Eagles and is expected to sign with them, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Murray paced the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards last season as he helped Dallas to the playoffs.

With Murray on his way out, the Cowboys are "calling around" for other running backs, Schefter added. The Cowboys "know they've lost" Murray to their divisional rivals, per Schefter.

Yahoo Sports reported Murray was upset with the Cowboys' most recent offer of $5 million annually. The Eagles will pay Murray like a top-5 running back, with an amount of guaranteed money that will surprise some people, according to Fox Sports.

Murray's father, Kevin Murray, told the Dallas Morning News on Thursday morning that his 27-year-old son headed to Philly with an open mind, prepared to give Dallas a chance to increase its offer.

“My impression from talking to him this morning is that he loves his coach, he loves his teammates and the Dallas fans,” Kevin Murray told the paper, “but he’s just hurt that something hasn’t happened to lure him not to take the trip right now."

But with Murray now poised to join Chip Kelly's offense, former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews might back out on his previously reported agreement with Philly. Mathews would struggle for touches in a backfield featuring Murray, Darren Sproles and goal-line specialist Chris Polk.

Report: DeMarco Murray plans to sign with Eagles


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2015) Free agent running back DeMarco Murray is visiting the Eagles Thursday afternoon with the intention of signing a deal, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. However, the reigning NFL rushing leader has not closed the door on a last-minute offer from the Cowboys.

According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo! Sports on Wednesday, the Cowboys offered Murray approximately $5 million annually, which prompted the him to remove all Dallas references from his Twitter handle. Rand Getlin of Yahoo! Sports reiterated on Thursday that Dallas is seeking to pay Murray an annual salary of $5 million per season.

Meanwhile, Ryan Mathews has agreed to a deal with the Eagles but has yet to sign his contract. According to Albert Breer of NFL Media, he is in Philadelphia's facility as of Thursday morning, possibly waiting for Murray's situation to play out.

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

The Jaguars and Raiders remain interested in Murray, but at this point they appear to be long shot destinations for the free agent back. According to Schefter, Murray is interested in playing for a contender, and if he doesn't return to Dallas, the Eagles fits his criteria. If Murray agreed to a deal with the Eagles, he'd reunite with his former Oklahoma teammate Sam Bradford, the former No. 1 overall pick by the Rams in the 2010 draft. The Eagles traded Nick Foles for Bradford on Tuesday.

Report: Cowboys to let DeMarco Murray test free agency


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(2/28/2015) 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."
