Lance Dunbar 'excited' about role in Dallas Cowboys offense

The Dallas Cowboys are hoping that Scott Linehan is able to breathe some new life into the team’s offense moving forward and early indications are that he is making a positive impact.

With some players speaking out about what Linehan has been implementing in Big D, it appears that the offensive scheme will be diverse with the running backs having more responsibilities and more of an impact than they have in the past.

One running back in particular who is ready to do his part in the Cowboys offense is Lance Dunbar, who is competing for the primary back up role behind DeMarco Murray that many believe he will earn.

“It’s pretty exciting,” Dunbar said, via ESPN Dallas. “There’s a lot of screens and stuff. He got them the ball in space.”

Dunbar has shown promise in limited action since joining the team, but he will have a real chance to step up and take on a much bigger role in the offense in 2014 if he can stay on the field.

While training camp and OTAs will determine the complete order of the depth chart, it would be a surprise if Dunbar was unable to claim the No. 2 spot.
