Dez Bryant campaigns for DeMarco Murray return to Dallas

To say that DeMarco Murray never really found his niche with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015 would be an understatement. This is why ex-teammate Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant would like to see Murray return to Dallas. Bryant sent a tweet, which appears to be lobbying for support from teammates Tony Romo and Jason Witten to jump on the same bandwagon to pursue Murray....

Dez Bryant To DeMarco Murray: “Come On Home”

Around lunchtime on Thursday afternoon, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport had some interesting news for the football world.

WATCH: DeMarco Murray scores TD on first carry of game

After the dismissal of Chip Kelly as the coach of the Philadelphia Eagles, many media eyes were squarely placed on running back DeMarco Murray.

DeMarco Murray says he ‘can’t worry’ about how many carries he gets

DeMarco Murray was conciliatory when speaking about his reduced role with the Eagles on Tuesday. Murray played in just eight snaps on Sunday night, and it’s been a remarkable fall in a short time for the man who led the league in rushing just last season. If Murray is bitter, however, he’s not saying so publicly. “At the end of the day, you’ve got a position to make the...

Chip Kelly deserves blame for the DeMarco Murray debacle

DeMarco Murray isn’t the highest-priced free-agent bust, or the least productive big-money free agent ever signed. But Chip Kelly’s prize acquisition is the worst free-agent signing ever, definitely in the Millenial headline kind of way and maybe literally also. It was one of the weirdest narratives of the offseason. Murray was the 2014 AP Offensive Player of the Year, his 2...

PACKERS FOOTBALL FRIDAY: And Nothing was the Same

On paper it sure looks like a rematch of a very important (and controversial) playoff game from a season ago.  In so many ways it is not.  There will be no Demarco Murray.  There won’t be any Tony Romo either.  The 2014 Packers offense was a highly functioning unit despite a quarterback that couldn’t move.  The 2015 offense looks awful and it seems all Rodgers does is run...
