We can safely assume Hall of Fame offensive lineman Rayfield Wright thinks the Cowboys will be just fine in the absence of reigning rushing champion DeMarco Murray, who left for the Philadelphia Eagles in free agency back in March.
According to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, Wright was one of around 50 former players in attendance at Monday’s practice at AT&T Stadium. While there, he had some very high praise for the current line, suggesting that they’re so good, in fact, that it doesn’t really matter who’s running behind them.
“If you played behind our line in the 70s or Troy [Aikman’s] line in the 90s or this line right here that’s being developed now, any running back can run the ball,” Wright said. “This offensive line is developing into a great offensive line. They just need to stay healthy.”
So with such a strong offensive line, are the Cowboys Super Bowl contenders?
“Yes, with this offensive line,” Wright said. “Now, if everybody will do their job, we can get there. That’s what I like about it.”
