On NFL GameDay Sunday morning, Ian Rapoport passed along some growing concern within the Dallas Cowboys organization about the ability of running back DeMarco Murray to be a franchise running back.
Murray has had a history of injuries and continues to miss time, so the team could be looking to add a true work horse back at some point before the deadline.
Here is what Rapoport had to say:
From #NFLGameDay: Cowboys no longer sold on DeMarco Murray as franchise RB. Have had discussions about adding. Watch them at trade deadline

We would have to see what running backs will be on the trade market as we head towards the deadline, but an Arian Foster or Ben Tate would be an obvious attraction.
The Cowboys passing offense is fine and has the ability to carry this team, but if they can add a respectable rushing game then they will be able to really round out their attack and be a complete offense that will be tough for anyone to deal with.
