DeMarco Murray led all running backs (minimum 50 attempts) in yards per carry against base defenses last season.

Status has its privileges

IRVING, Texas – Back in the day American Express made famous the slogan, “Membership has its privileges.” It was that iconic ad that popped into my head when I saw the picture of Tony Romo and Jason Witten in Jerry Jones’ suite at AT&T Stadium Monday night at the NCAA men’s basketball final with Presidents George W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Running back DeMarco Murray was also in the suite, but not in the much-circulated photo.

Cowboys don’t run DeMarco Murray enough. Why would they want to add Chris Johnson?

Chris Johnson is on the verge of being released by Tennessee. The Cowboys have already been thrown into the speculative mix as a landing spot. Here’s my position: the Cowboys don’t run the ball as much as they should with DeMarco …

Chat recap: All about opportunity

IRVING, Texas -- We had another spirited chat on Wednesday in which we touched on a number of subjects. One that I will delve further into here in a bit is why the Dallas Cowboys didn’t sign Kenny Britt or Hakeem Nicks, and why I don’t believe Chris Johnson will be coming here. But we also discussed: The Cowboys approach to free agency. The possibility of signing DeMarco Murray to an extension. If Anthony Barr is in play at No.

An Extension For Cowboys' Murray?

The idea has begun to float that the Cowboys could extend DeMarco Murray, is this good plan or no? Over the last couple of days, I've heard two of the DFW media members I trust the most indicate that extending DeMarco Murray's contract was a distinct possibility. First, Bryan Broaddus broached the idea on the draft show at Dallascowboys.com, saying that he has heard "whispers that they're talking to (Murray)" after the deflated market for NFL running backs. Then about 30 or 45 minutes later, this article, written by Todd Archer was posted by ESPN's NFL Nation. (To be fair to Archer, it...

Could RB market help Dallas with Murray?

IRVING, Texas -- While we have discussed the long-term futures of Tyron Smith and Dez Bryant with the Dallas Cowboys this offseason, one player we have not touched on much is DeMarco Murray. Murray is scheduled to be a free agent after this season. He was named to the Pro Bowl after rushing for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns, and catching 53 passes for 350 yards and a touchdown. When Murray has played well and been given a chance to carry the ball, the Cowboys have won.
