Running back DeMarco Murray is optimistic about the team's prospects in 2012



    Cowboys’ running back DeMarco Murray is optimistic going into the first true offseason of his NFL career. Ahead of schedule in rehab as he recovers from the fractured ankle/high ankle sprain that ended his rookie season, Murray believes the Cowboys will show vast improvement from last season to next.

Asked the key to the Cowboys returning to the playoffs in 2012, the Oklahoma product gave a simple answer--and one that we’d imagine most fans who watched the team in 2011 can agree with.

    "Just finishing," he said, per the Dallas Morning News. "We were a young team this year. We had a lot of young guys, offensively and defensively. Just missing OTAs and all that extra stuff with a new coaching staff. We're looking forward to this training camp, having a full season under our belt. Like I said, there's a lot of great things in the near future for the Dallas Cowboys. We're excited about the team we have."
