Murray hasn’t heard from Cowboys since last week

AP

Apparently, DeMarco Murray’s removal of the Cowboys from his Twitter profile wasn’t the product of a butt dial.

Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Murray hasn’t heard from the Cowboys since last week.  While Schefter doesn’t specifically report that’s the reason for the change in Murray social media page, it’s implied.

It’s unclear why Murray would expect to hear from the Cowboys.  The three-day negotiating window is intended to give players a chance to determine their market value, which in turn gives them a chance to take those offers back to their original teams.

If Murray’s agent has been calling the Cowboys and getting snubbed, that’s a different story.  But if the Cowboys are simply hoping to retain leverage by not making the first call now that Murray is in position to attract offers, it’s not unreasonable that they haven’t been in touch.

Then again, the explanation doesn’t matter.  Murray apparently is miffed, which could mean the Cowboys won’t get the chance they assumed they’d have to match or come close to whatever Murray has found from one or more of the other 31 franchises.

  1. So let me get this straight…..

    Peterson puts the Vikings back on his Twitter page and it means nothing…….

    Murray removes the Cowboys from his twitter page and it means something…..

    I’m confused……

  2. Thats good if you ask me. Dont throw the Brinks truck at him, let him see what he gets offered then see if its worth it. If not, see you later.

  3. That’s not the only team he won’t be hearing from.

    Couple days from now…Knock knock, come in Dee what can I do for ya, uhm can I come back and play here….well son you sure can how does 4yrs at 3 mill a year sound oh yeah be careful how answer that because THAT IS MY FINAL offer!!!

    Mr. Jones

  4. Took Jerrah 20 years to win a playoff game and only one offseason to screw it up again.

  5. Jags are said to be interested, havent heard any offers from any team though, hopefully thats a good thing. He earned that payday but man theres only so much money u can give a RB

  6. Step up to the plate and make it happen, JJ!!! There is a lot to be said for team chemistry, imo!

  7. Geez, kids, everyone relax! You both still love each other, you know that.

    Yes, Jerry should’ve called after the last date, but DeMarco shouldn’t have burned those pictures they took at the carnival photo booth.

    Maybe you can work it out, maybe you can’t, but you need to keep the emotions in check.

  8. Spray Tan will find out the market might not be so bright for him. Take less and go back to the Cowboys as Texas has no state taxes and make a run at a championship.

  9. Try chasing down a Recruiter just to get an interview sometime….that will upset your Twitter Profile. DOH!

  10. The Baltimore Ravens should get up in this. Restructure Webby and Ngata, Sign Andre to take over for T. Smith short term, and then sign Murray to a 4 or 5 year deal. My only concern would be how he held up in the AFC North. Were REAL football is played. We’re just a tougher breed of football, sorry, the truth hurts isnt an expression cause it sounds good, its cause its freaking true

  11. Demarco isn’t exactly elite… Daryl “Moose” Johnson could have run for a 1000 yards behind that line. Come back down to earth son.

  12. Ok so move on to another team that will give you what you want and hopefully be a contender. I think alot of players 2nd contract is where they want to make the most money. I dont know why the colts arent beating your agent up

  13. What kind of fools actually believe the Cowboys can be competitive without Murray. The only reason Romo (who is an average QB) was not run out of town was because he was throwing against defenses worried about being gashed by the best running back/oline in the league. And he still gashed them.
    I kind of hope they do get rid of him, and have to wait another 20 years before they win another playoff game.

  14. So the Cowboys are just expecting another team to set the market price for Murray, and then Murray will just come crawling back to them for the matching offer? Why in the world would Murray go back for that kind of treatment? At least if another team makes you an offer you know you are really wanted on that team….for the same price the Cowboys would apparently pay.

    I think every Cowboys fan is overestimating that o-line. If that is the case, simply draft a RB in the 7th round, pay him peanuts, and watch him gain 1,800 yards. Only, that’s never going to happen. Going 8-8 with a pass heavy offense if more apt to happen. Why do I say that? Because that’s what they have done every season prior to last year.

  16. Jerry fired Johnson because anyone could coach the team HE built. Now, Jerry is letting Murray go because anyone can run with the line HE built, Without Murray, Romo will exposed again.

  17. It’s funny someone mention how tough the AFC North is, yet I do not remember seeing any team from that division in the AFC Championship!

    Some may call a division tough, others (regular people) may call them offensively inept!!

    Bottom line, I’m not paying the man. He’s been healthy for the last two seasons and before that he was hurt all the time. He fumbled way too much to earn elite money from a team like Dallas. He needs them, not the other way around. Enjoy, Indy.

  19. Jacksonville could throw a ton of money at him………and no state income tax as well.

  20. At first blush, 25 or so contracts to FAs have been hammered out, and a couple to RBs all during a period where it’s expressly forbidden to do so unless that FA was on the team that signed him. Not even a hint of a visit anywhere for Murray, let alone a deal. Just writers continuing their assumptions that the Jags want him.

    We’ll see after today ends, maybe a deal is being done on the down low with a yet to be named team. Dallas, BTW needs to activate some restructuring in Smith’s contract or they couldn’t sign a practice squad player, let alone Murray. They have about 3.5m in cap space including for the draft class.

  21. Dallas gave him an offer and asked him to come back with offers from other teams and give them a chance to match… So, the ball is in his court. They are not going to bid against themselves. I still think the Jerry will sign him, especially after restructuring T Smith yesterday.

  22. The Cowboys are in a media catch22 with Murray. It doesn’t matter what they do, it’ll be spun as a loss either way. If they sign him to a nice money deal, they’ll be ripped for overpaying and if they let him walk, it’s the worst decision since trading for Roy Williams.

    All this talk about Romo’s regression without Murray is stupid. I know those who love their narrative and memes about Romo won’t pay attention, but it needs to be said. In 2013 that was a 3 win team without Romo. Maybe 4 win team if Brady, Rogers, Peyton were there instead. 8-8 was a triumph for Romo, and if you think anything else you don’t know much about football. Doesn’t matter if he threw an interception at a bad time in 2013, the only reason they were in it late was because of Romo, period. That goes for every game they played.

  24. Yeah, any running back can run for 1000 yards behind that o-line, eh?!

    Well, Murray ran for over 1800 yards, with a fractured hand.

    Fantasy football fans who know nothing about the game think RB doesn’t matter in the League. Pfft! Don’t believe the hype.

    Try playing a football game for once in your life. Trust me, when playing defense, the run game matters. You are physically being manhandled and getting bruised on every play. I never, ever got tired pass rushing. But dang, I hated getting run on. Feels like a fist fight. It leaves a mark on ya!

  25. Well finally Cowboys are actually playing their cards right and not just showing up at the players house with a dump truck full of money! Nothing personal Murray it is what it is…

  26. $9M per year is what is rumored to be on the table. If that isn’t enough, let him walk.

  27. Dallas has one of the youngest rosters in the NFL. Their player personnel man – Will McClay – has convinced Jerry to build through the draft and they are – quite successfully.

    Murray just doesn’t fit anymore. The line is the key piece, not the running back. Adios, DeMarco. Any team that pays huge money to a running back is purposely hurting their team.
