Eagles' Murray on RB rotation: 'I don't think it will be alternating series'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/27/2015) With DeMarco Murray, Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles on the roster, the Eagles have a plethora of running backs with NFL experience and the question on everyone's mind is: How will coach Chip Kelly split up the playing time?

Murray, who signed a five-year contract reportedly worth $42 million in the offseason, was asked his opinion on the matter Tuesday.

"I don't think it will be alternating series," Murray said, per CSNphilly.com. "But [Mathews] is a quality back, great guy, works extremely hard. I'm sure he'll get his fair share of touches. But I don't know how the rotation will be yet, we haven't touched on it."

Murray said he is unsure how many snaps he will get in the third preseason games against the Packers on Saturday, but it could be a good indication on how he will be used during the regular season since it is the penultimate preseason game.

"I think we're approaching it like a regular game," Murray said. "You can't go out there with a preseason mindset. We're focused, whether it's playing one snap or 40 snaps."


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."


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.

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.
