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.
