There is a question on whether the Dallas Cowboys should bring back free agent running back DeMarco Murray on the heels of the best season for a runner in Cowboys franchise history in which Murray was named an All-Pro and led the NFL in rushing by more than 500 yards.
And that question is very valid. There are reasons to believe it might not be the best idea to open the bank account on Murray, given his large workload of nearly 500 touches this season and his past littered with injuries.
But if you believe a report from NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, the Cowboys' standing offer to Murray is a four-year deal worth slightly more than $16 million — a deal that really isn't even competitive.
If that's the Cowboys' best offer, that's fine, but it won't keep Murray who will certainly get a better offer on the open market. You'd think the market for Murray would start at four years for somewhere around $24 million, and that's a starting point.
The question is, who will offer that to him? At this point, it doesn't seem likely it'll be the Cowboys.
