Cowboys' Tony Romo: DeMarco Murray asked me to take a pay cut
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Eagles running back DeMarco Murray was really hoping to remain with the Cowboys this offseason. So much so, he asked quarterback Tony Romo to take a pay cut to remain with the team, Romo said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Tuesday, per the Dallas Morning News.

"DeMarco ended up asking me, 'Why don't you take a pay cut?' I said, 'I will. I would take a pay cut to go do this,'" Romo said. "I was like, 'They're going to restructure me.' That's the same thing in some ways, just for the salary cap purposes. He was like, 'OK, now we're back to being friends again.' I would take $5 million less if meant getting him back.

"He knew that. It was just funny how he was literally worried about that part of it for a week. I'm like, 'That's not the reason.' I'm like, 'Obviously I'll restructure. I would even take a pay cut.' He was like, 'OK, we can be friends again.' It's amazing what you think about in those moments."

Owner: DeMarco Murray better fit than LeSean McCoy
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said the team traded running back LeSean McCoy to the Bills and replaced him with DeMarco Murray because Murray better fits Chip Kelly's system, reports Eagles 24/7.

"We’ve been talking about the asset value of LeSean for a long time because he wasn’t the style of runner that Chip prefers, but a great player," Lurie said.

"Getting players that fit more of what he’s all about in terms of their style of play. LeSean McCoy is a great running back -- all-time franchise leader. Great guy in every way. To maximize his power spread offense, he’s always admired the one-cut runners. That’s what he admired.

"You’ve gotta let a coach try to bring in the players that fit best what he’s all about to maximize what he’s trying to accomplish. It really boils down to that. You have a decision as an owner: Do you want to fight that? Or do want to adopt it? I went all out to try and get Chip as the coach, and I’m really happy we did. He’s got a great potential future, and I’m happy to be able to provide him the resources to be able to maximize what he’s all about."

The Eagles also signed running back Ryan Mathews in free agency, who is closer in style to Murray than McCoy.

Eagles plan to spread the ball around with Murray, Mathews, Sproles
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

After signing running backs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews on Thursday, Eagles head coach Chip Kelly made it clear that he plans on spreading the ball around in the running game. He also said that he doesn't envision Murray being a workhorse back in the Eagles offense.

Murray and Mathews will be added to a backfield that recently lost LeSean McCoy in a trade to the Bills, but the team still has Darren Sproles. The head coach states that Sproles will still remain an integral part of the offense.

"Darren (Sproles) is a Swiss army knife. You can use him in a million different ways", says Kelly.

Eagles make it official, announce DeMarco Murray's signing
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Frank Gore may have had second thoughts about Philadelphia but DeMarco Murray didn't. The Eagles announced early Thursday evening that the 2014 AP Offensive Player of the Year has signed his five-year contract with the franchise

ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen previously reported that the deal will have a maximum value of $42 million with $21 million guaranteed. 

"It was never about the money...I could've taken that a long time ago," Murray said, via ESPN's Todd Archer. "It's about winning a Super Bowl [and] being fair."

Murray led the NFL in rushing with 1,845 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2014 with the Cowboys. The Cowboys reportedly offered Murray a deal that averaged around $5 million per year.  

The Eagles also announced that former Chargers running back Ryan Mathews signed a three-year deal with the organization as well.

Tony Romo on losing DeMarco Murray: 'Not an ideal situation'
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo seemed taken aback by running back DeMarco Murray's defection to the Eagles. "It just happened," he said, per the Dallas Morning News. "All the way up until today, I was still thinking we'd be able to keep DeMarco.

"Obviously, it's not an ideal situation. I'm losing a close friend, too, so that hurts. We have to trust in the process and the people making the decisions. We have salary cap implications and a bunch of other things that we have to decide. That plays a role. The Eagles obviously thought as highly of him as we did."

Murray led the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards last season, scoring 13 touchdowns.
