Dallas Cowboys free agent running back DeMarco Murray is considering the Eagles, Raiders, Jaguars and the Cowboys.
Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray is the highest profiled free agent on offensive this offseason, and two days into free agency and he has yet to sign with a team. Murray’s list has come down to the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and a return to the Dallas Cowboys.
All four teams need a running back like DeMarco Murray. The Philadelphia Eagles made waves when they traded away their best player, running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso, leaving an opening for a free agent. The Eagles traded quarterback Nick Foles to St. Louis for Sam Bradford, who is actively recruiting Murray to come to his new team.
The Oakland Raiders signed former Washington running back Roy Helu Tuesday, but are still looking to nab DeMarco Murray.
The Jacksonville Jaguars have the highest cap space out of any NFL team right now, as they’re the favorite for another big signing after they signed former Broncos tight end Julius Thomas Tuesday.
