When former Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray was told of his former teammate Joseph Randle’s comments, that he “left a lot of meat on the bone” in 2014, he couldn’t help but laugh some.
“Hopefully he can taste some of that meat this year,” Murray said of Randle, per CSNPhilly.com.
We can’t blame him for laughing. The reigning AP Offensive Player of the Year, Murray rushed for 1,845 yards in 2014.
Not only was that more than anyone else in the league last year, it was more than any Cowboy has ever had in a season. Murray became the Cowboys’ all-time, single-season rushing champion in the final week of the regular season.
Meanwhile, Randle had a nice 2014 as well, but on a much more limited basis than Murray. He finished with 343 yards on 51 carries and three touchdowns, and figures to see his involvement grow in a major way with Murray in Philadelphia.
“They’re a good team,” Murray said. “Hopefully he can get a chance to run behind that line and do some good things. But I’m not worried about it. I didn’t hear about it until now. It’s not a big deal."
