Demarco demoted

Post by lambert10 » Mon Dec 07, 2015 12:45 pm

The one thing that appears to be good about the off season was the Cowboys refusal to resign Murray at the money he wanted. The Eagles just demoted him. He only played in 16 snaps yesterday. He has been probably the biggest free agent bust in the NFL. And I know, they don't use the best run scheme for him, but backs worth what he got should do much better regardless. Now, if we can only find a RB, and a CB, and a pass rusher and another WR, and a...... :explode:

Hopefully they'll cut him and he comes back a nice discount.

The Eagles running game is broken.
Funny, the broken Demarco leads their team in rushing.

Chip Kelly is an idiot. Lesean McCoy was the perfect fit for their offense, but he sent him packing. Murray is not a good fit at all. I liken it to Jimmy Graham. He was a beast in New Orleans's offense, but never quite fit in Seattle before he got hurt. When signing free agents, teams need to take a better look at how players fit their scheme.

And the reason for that has been discussed ad nauseum.
Regardless of the yards per carry, he has been effective at times when he was allowed to get North and South.

Wondering if there could be a Cowboys-DeMarco Murray reunion

Todd Archer, ESPN Staff Writer


The Philadelphia Eagles demoted DeMarco Murray last week, which is stunning considering the $21 million they guaranteed the running back last March. That’s how bad the season has gone for Murray, who has 163 carries for 569 yards and four touchdowns. Could the Eagles do the unthinkable and part ways with Murray after the season? The salary cap makes it almost impossible to even think about. His 2016 $7 million base salary is guaranteed. But let’s say the Eagles choose to do it. I wonder if the Cowboys would jump on the chance to re-sign him. Actually, I more than wonder it. I would expect the Cowboys to get involved in the mix. The Cowboys miss Murray badly, and it’s clear Murray misses the Cowboys.The Eagles’ offense is just not a good fit for Murray. The Cowboys’ offense is a perfect fit. Now, what kind of contract would you give Murray, who would be a year older, although not with the wear of a big-carry season? The Cowboys offered Murray $6 million per year with $12 million guaranteed after he led the NFL with 1,845 yards rushing.

Again, DeMarco Murray has a $40 million contract in theory only. Real deal: two years, $18 million.

highlighted part is an opinion by a staff writer. Holds about as much weight as yours or my opinion. He was perfect in 2014. Seems like he has some wear and tear on him in 2015. He most likely won't be cut until after 2016 because of guaranteed money. Washed up by that time.
