- Mike Florio believes there’s a chance RB DeMarco Murray “is trying to talk his way out of Philadelphia.“
- Florio writes that it appears as though Murray spoke with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie and then leaked the news in hope that HC Chip Kelly would decide to cut him.
- On Wednesday, Kelly denied any issues between him and Murray, and explained that the two had a casual conversation on the plane ride home.
NFL Executive Vice President Eric Grubman mentioned during an appearance on “The Bernie Miklasz Show” on WXOS-FM that there’s “no compelling proposal” to prevent any of the Raiders, Rams, or Chargers from relocating to Los Angeles.
“There’s no compelling proposal from any city,” Grubman said. “San Diego’s proposal, outline, whatever you want to call it, it’s to be delivered next year. Oakland, who have really started very recently to try to put something together, they’re really just beginning to define it.”
According to Grubman, the current stadium proposals in St. Louis are on the low end of what the project would ultimately cost.
“St. Louis will fall short of having a compelling proposal that would attract the Rams,” Grubman said. “To that end, and I don’t mean to oversimplify and I’m certainly not going to negotiate the individual points: the stadium is going to cost more than is at the drawing board at the moment, the funding has declined and new taxes are being proposed to the Rams.”
