Blogging The Boys Mailbag: Cowboys 2015 Running Back Situation

In this weeks edition of the BTB mailbag running back was the hot topic. Is DeMarco Murray the answer or do the Cowboys address this elsewhere? The popular subject this week is the running back situation and for good reason. DeMarco Murray will be testing the free agency market after the Dallas Cowboys placed their franchise tag on Dez Bryant. The Eagles traded their franchise back to the Buffalo Bills for a linebacker.

No reason for Tony Romo to take pay cut

IRVING, Texas -- The question was being asked before Peyton Manning agreed to take a $4 million pay cut from the Denver Broncos on Wednesday: Why doesn't Tony Romo take a cut in pay to help the Dallas Cowboys keep Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray? Well, he doesn't have to. Nor should he. And if the Cowboys want to sign Bryant and Murray to long-term deals, they don't need any cash from Tony Romo. Romo is set to make a $17 million base salary in 2015 and count an NFL-high $27.

Beasley deal in different neighborhood than Dez Bryant, DeMarco Murray

IRVING, Texas -- With the news that the Dallas Cowboys have reached an agreement with Cole Beasley on a four-year deal comes the natural wondering why they have not been able to strike deals for Dez Bryant or DeMarco Murray. Beasley's deal and the contracts for Bryant and Murray will be in far different neighborhoods. Beasley's cap figure for 2015 is likely less than $2 million based on the $4 million signing bonus and how the Cowboys have structured deals in the past with the first-year base salaries being at or close to the NFL minimum.

Charley Walters: Peterson would be upgrade over Murray, Owens says

It is unclear whether the Dallas Cowboys will be able to retain unrestricted free-agent running back DeMarco Murray, who led the NFL in rushing last season.
