Mutual Interest Between Cowboys & DeMarco Murray, But Dallas Not Willing To Overpay

Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports reports that the Cowboys and free agent RB DeMarco Murray have mutual interest in bringing him back next year.

As of now, the Cowboys are holding tight on their position to not overpay for a running back, which means he would have to take less to return to Dallas next season.

It doesn’t help that Mark Ingram jumped at a four-year contract worth $16 million that will allow him to return to the Saints.

That’s the kind of money Toby Gerhart and Donald Brown got last year, so even if Murray ends up with a better contract than that, it’s unlikely to be much better.

Murray, 26, was extremely impressive this season. He ran for 1,845 yards on 393 carries (4.7 YPC) and scored 13 touchdowns, over the course of 16 games and added another 57 receptions for 416 yards receiving.

Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 5 running back in the league out of 57 qualifying players.

We have Murray listed as the No. 9 player in our Top 100 Free Agents list.
