ESPN Cowboys reporter Todd Archer believes Dallas would be interested in bringing back DeMarco Murray "if the numbers are reworked."
Murray said he wants to remain with the Eagles, but NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Murray and the organization "are not in a good place." The contract is an obstacle, but it is highly unlikely Dallas will get a shot at Murray regardless. The guaranteed money in Murray's deal makes cutting him difficult, and trades between division rivals rarely happen.

DeMarco Murray insists he wants to remain with the Eagles.

"That’s not the lasting impression I want to leave in my mouth and (for) the fans, and my family, anyone," Murray said. "I never want to leave off on a note like I did last year. So I'm working tremendously hard to try and improve." NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Thursday the sides are "not in a good place." If Murray wants out, he's at least going to take the high road publicly. With his contract making him difficult to trade or cut, Murray will likely be back with the Eagles.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles and DeMarco Murray "are not in a good place."

Rapoport reports Murray has not asked to be traded or released, and the Eagles are not interested in cutting him at this point. Rapoport did say "it's fair to say Murray has eyes on greener pastures," however, and the Eagles are likely not happy with the amount of money they have invested at running back. Murray's contract makes cutting him almost impossible, but Philly may start shopping him in trades if the relationship is truly broken. Murray gained 702 yards on 193 carries (3.64 YPC) in the first season of a five-year, $40 million deal.

DeMarco Murray rushed 12 times for 69 yards and one touchdown in the Eagles' Week 17 win over the Giants.

He rumbled for a 54-yard touchdown on the Eagles' opening possession when the safety took a horrible angle on the play. Murray wraps up his first season in Philadelphia with 193 carries for 702 yards (3.64 YPC) and six touchdowns one year after posting a 392-1,845-13 rushing line in Dallas. There's no way around it; Murray was a colossal bust both in real life and fantasy. He was square-pegged into a round hole in now former coach Chip Kelly's offense. If the Eagles want to keep Murray and get him back on track, they need to hire a coach who will bring a north-south running offense that plays to Murray's strengths. Murray is due $7 million in 2016, all of which is guaranteed.
Jan 3 - 5:33 PM

DeMarco Murray rushed six times for 15 yards and a touchdown and caught 3-of-4 targets for 24 yards in the Eagles' Week 16 loss to Washington.

Murray racked up a bunch of touches on a second-quarter drive, but his hip stiffness and inability to change direction were exposed virtually every time he handled the ball. Murray got some points for his small handful of remaining fantasy owners on a third-quarter goal-line score. On the Eagles' very next drive, Murray lost a fumble on a pitch from Sam Bradford. It was returned to the house by DeAngelo Hall. Murray will enter Week 17 against the Giants with touch totals of 8, 13, 2, and 9 in his previous four games.

DeMarco Murray was held to two carries for three yards in Week 15 against the Cardinals.

Murray played two snaps in the first half and didn’t get his first carry until midway through the third quarter. He remained deep in Chip Kelly's doghouse, finishing with just eight total snaps. Murray is owed $9M guaranteed next year, but it continues to look like he won't be with the Eagles in 2016.

ESPN's Adam Caplan reports Chip Kelly gave no assurances to DeMarco Murray regarding his role in the offense in a meeting last week.

Murray had a busy datebook last week. After having an "impromptu" conversation with Jeffrey Lurie on the way home from the win over the Patriots, Murray met with Kelly later in the week. Murray was not promised a big role in the meeting, and he was out-touched by Ryan Mathews against the Bills. The good news for Murray is his role in the offense seemed to grow throughout the game, and he was in as the Eagles attempted to close out the win late. With Darren Sproles also getting touches, the Eagles' backfield is a risky fantasy investment this deep into the playoffs.

DeMarco Murray rushed 11 times for 34 yards and caught both his targets for three yards Week 14 against the Bills.

Murray was the second back through the rotation to open the game and finished with the second-most touches. He was slightly more effective than Ryan Mathews, but both struggled to get anything going against what had been a struggling run defense. On the bright side, Murray was the running back in the "four-minute" offense as the Eagles attempted to close out the game. Murray will continue to have a role, but he is part of a value-sapping committee. He is nothing better than an RB3/FLEX play moving forward.

DeMarco Murray, Darren Sproles, Ryan Mathews and Kenjon Barner are active for Week 14 against the Bills.

Murray is active, but he is expected to serve as the No. 4 back. Sproles will start, but it would not be surprising if Mathews leads the backfield in touches when it is all said and done. Sproles is a solid RB3 in PPR formats while Mathews is a high-upside RB3 everywhere. Mathews is averaging 5.7 yards a carry and has five touchdowns in just 75 rushing attempts this season. Murray cannot be trusted in the opening week of the fantasy playoffs.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports DeMarco Murray will be the Eagles' fourth-string running back Sunday against the Bills.

The soap opera continues in Philly. Coach Chip Kelly has effectively benched Murray for ratting him out to owner Jeffrey Lurie. According to Rapsheet, Murray said he questioned both Kelly and running backs coach Duce Staley and feels Kelly is not "approachable." It's been quite a fall from grace for Murray, who led the NFL in rushing yards a year ago in Dallas. It remains to be seen if Murray will be an Eagle next season. Darren Sproles will start Sunday against Buffalo.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 09:32:00 AM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Eagles have "weighed all options" with DeMarco Murray, including benching him.

That leaves Murray's status very up in the air for Sunday's game against Buffalo. This likely stems from Murray's reported "meeting" with team owner Jeffrey Lurie. Profootballtalk reported earlier this week that there was "a lot of truth" to rumors Murray would welcome a return to Dallas. Either way, it sounds like the Eagles have had it with him. He's not a fantasy option this week and may not be for the rest of the season.
Sun, Dec 13, 2015 08:26:00 AM

ESPN Eagles reporter Phil Sheridan thinks there's a chance DeMarco Murray could have a big role Sunday.

It’s just a guess, as Murray could easily play closer to the 14 snaps he saw against the Patriots. The entire Eagles backfield should be avoided this week. Murray has just 22 touches over the last two games.

DeMarco Murray said Thursday that he's happy in Philadelphia and wants to return to the Eagles.

Murray is very likely lying through his teeth. A report has already surfaced that Murray would like to return to the Cowboys. Murray played just 14 snaps in last week's win and hasn't been a fit whatsoever in coach Chip Kelly's scheme. Both sides will likely try to move on from each other in the offseason. Murray's workload is extremely uncertain for Week 14.

A source with knowledge of the situation tells Profootballtalk there’s a "lot of truth" to the idea that DeMarco Murray would like to return to Dallas.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reported something similar on Thursday. A disastrous fit for Chip Kelly's offense, Murray would love to resume going north and south for the team he broke out for last season, but his contract makes him all but un-tradable. He's due $7 million guaranteed in 2016. Both sides are going to want to move on, but they'll have to be willing to get creative.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 10:48:00 PM

Coach Chip Kelly said DeMarco Murray and Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie didn't have a "meeting;" they simply sat next to each other on the team flight home from New England.

Murray is being painted as a whiner, cry baby, and bad teammate by some media for "running upstairs" to talk to the boss and going over his coach's head to express his frustrations. But it doesn't sound like that's what was going on here. Lurie very well could've simply asked Murray a question on the flight, and Murray may have answered truthfully. With Ryan Mathews set to return Sunday against the Bills, Murray's role remains up in the air.
