Murray may want to return to Dallas, but the feeling may not be mutual

The recent DeMarco Murray drama in Philly culminated in reports that he’d like to get away from the Eagles and back to the Cowboys. The Cowboys may not feel the same way.

In his Week 15 notebook, Albert Breer of NFL Media attributes this quote to an unnamed Cowboys source regarding Murray: “The guy is a pro in his preparation and toughness and competitiveness. But he’s also entitled, selfish and condescending. He’s a great ‘team’ guy when he’s the guy.”

Depending on how high on the hierarchy the team source resides, that could keep the Cowboys from ever bringing Murray back.

Breer adds that the issues between Murray and the Eagles weren’t surprising to the Cowboys, and that he had a reputation of moping when things didn’t go his way.

Things definitely haven’t gone Murray’s way or the Cowboys’ way in 2015. For the Eagles, the postseason remains attainable, even if Murray hasn’t done much to position the team for a division championship.

  1. D-Mac has been fine, sorry Murray you ran and switched sides for a couple more million dollars….you would have been rich either way. Only difference is now, its coming at the price of public humiliation. Can’t say I feel sorry for you. Good luck. #CowboysNation

  2. Wow, the Dallas Cowboys have morons like Greg Hardy in their locker room and they don’t want DeMarco Murray back! The Cowboys were stupid to pass on Murray the first time if they pass on him again they would be one of the most idiotic thing they have done in a long time. I guarantee you that if Murray was still in Dallas the Cowboys would have won more games then just the 1 with Romo out of the lineup!

  3. He’s just a rb. They are a dime a dozen. It was a mistake for the eagles to sign him, and it would be a mistake for Dallas to bring him back. Improve your offensive line and draft one in the 3rd or 4th round. Regardless, a rb is never the reason you win or lose a title.

    The grass isn’t so green on the other side a Demarco?

    Seems pretty green to me. Guy made more money, still has a chance to win and escaped Jerrah’s annual trainwreck in Dallas.

    McFadden’s problem was, and will always be, he can’t stay healthy. He has impressed me this year by staying relatively healthy, but remember, he hasn’t started all year. It’s different when you have gotten 20+ touches every week, not just 20+ touches the past 8 games. (2014 CJ Anderson ring a bell??)

    People may not like Murray’s “attitude”, but there is no denying that he is a premier RB in that system, and that system, and Cowboys offense as a whole, is NOT the same with out him, regardless of how well he fits in Chip Kelly’s system.

  6. I NEVER thought this guy was good. He just so happened to be on a team that had an excellent offensive line that year without any injuries. Same with Emitt. I’m not saying her was not a great back because he was. I’m saying without that line he would have never broke the record

  7. Say whatever you want about Jerry Jones & the Cowboys, but as bad as it’s been down there, they didn’t lose to 2 sub .500 teams 2 weeks in a row. 45-17 to Lovey Smith’s Bucs at their home & 45-14 on the road the Lions & put up the two worst back to back losses in Cowboy history, that didn’t happen in Dallas.

    Losing Romo ruined their season. Lurie making Chip GM ruined our team.
