Maybe influenced by all those years of playing under Jason Garrett, Eagles running back DeMarco Murray is saying nothing about whatever emotions he might be experiencing as he prepares to face his old team, the Dallas Cowboys, next Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia.

According to Murray, there’s certainly no ill will there.

"Not at all," Murray said, per ESPN. "Not from my end, at least. This is a true business. I'm very emotionless when it comes to a lot of things, especially the business side. I understand the business aspect of the NFL. It's all about finding guys who are right for your system.

"I feel like I'm here and this is the best place for me. This is where I want to be and this is the team that wanted me."

Murray was drafted in the third round out of Oklahoma in 2011 and spent four seasons with the Cowboys. He left last offseason with the team’s single-season franchise rushing record.

"This is just another opponent," Murray said. "I'm not looking at the guys or the coaches. This is another opponent that we're facing. It's a huge challenge. I'm excited for the opportunity to go out there and play in front of our fans."
