Last year, Demarco Murray lead the NFL in rushing thanks to stellar performances week after week behind a Cowboys offensive line that was one of, if not the best, units in the league.
This summer, Murray signed with the Eagles to be a part of Chip Kelly‘s supposed high-flying offense, and things haven’t gone so well. Last year, Murray turned in 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns carrying the ball just short of 400 times. With just 4 games left in the 2015-2016 season, Murray has rushed for a meager 569 yards and scored four times on 163 touches. Talk about a drop-off.
According to The Bleacher Report, there’s a considerable bit of rumbling going on in the NFL surrounding Murray to conclude that the star running back is looking to get cut by the Eagles so he can rejoin the Cowboys, who could use a boost at the running back position. Darren McFadden, the former Arkansas standout and Heisman Trophy runner-up, stepped in looking to fill the void left by Murray, but hasn’t quite found the same groove. A reporter asked Murray about said rumblines, and he had the following to say.
DeMarco Murray asked if he regrets signing with Eagles: "Not at all. I'm committed to Chip and Jeff and the guys in this locker room."
