    As I’ve said before, the Cowboys aren’t keeping both Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray.

    Unless, that is, the NFL’s leading rusher is willing to leave considerable money on the table in his impending voyage into free agency.

    Though not probable, I guess that scenario is possible. I saw Murray, in Arizona for Super Bowl 49, hop on The Dan Patrick Show this morning and give Cowboys fans a sliver of hope. When asked about cashing in on his “big contract,” Murray at least gave lip service to winning over wages.

    “I don’t think about the one big contract, I’m thinking about winning a Super Bowl,” Murray said. “What’s best for me to win a Super Bowl and win one now. At the end of the day, the money is irrelevant to some degree. But you definitely want to get what you’re worth and things like that. At the end of the day it’s about winning a Super Bowl.”

    The money is irrelevant, to some degree.

    But as for potentially getting an offer he can’t refuse and leaving the Cowboys, Murray admitted “Yeah, I understand the business aspect of it.”

    A native Texan who was born in Duncanville and graduated from UT-Arlington, Richie Whitt has been a mainstay in the Metroplex media since 1986. He’s held prominent roles on all media platforms including newspaper (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Observer), radio (105.3 The Fan) and TV (co-host on TXA 21 and numerous guest appearances, including NBC 5). He currently lives in McKinney with his wife, Sybil, and two very spoiled dogs.
