Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray would love to be back in Dallas in 2015, but he also understands that the NFL is a business, and he’s ready to move on if it comes to that.
“Obviously I love playing with these guys, love playing for Jerry, love playing for Jason [Garrett],” Murray told ESPN.com this week. “He’s a helluva coach, a helluva guy. The things I’ve learned from him and [Jason Witten] in the four years I’ve been here, I’m very gracious and appreciative of it. If the chips fall that way, I’m excited and would love to come back. I don’t know what’s going to happen, so we’ll see.”
Murray led the NFL in rushing and set a new franchise record in 2014 with 1,845 yards and, for the first time in his career, played all 16 games. He also went for 198 yards in the team’s two playoff games.
Suffice to say, there should be plenty of interest in Murray in free agency.
“Those guys know how I am as a person and I understand that business aspect,” Murray said. “I don’t get butt-hurt. I don’t get my feelings hurt. I believe in myself and what I’m capable of doing and whoever it is I’m playing for next year, I know I’m going to make a huge impact.”
