Cowboys' Darren McFadden: The world hasn't seen the best of me
by Igor Mello |

After struggling the past three seasons in Oakland, Cowboys running back Darren McFadden is ready for a bounce-back campaign. He said in an appearance on NFL Network on Friday that the world has not "seen the best of Darren McFadden."

McFadden rushed for 1,620 yards in 38 games (31 starts) over the last three seasons in Oakland before signing a two-year deal worth up to $5.85 million this offseason, with the hopes of replacing DeMarco Murray in Dallas.

McFadden expressed his lack of concern over the possibility of the Cowboys acquiring Vikings running back Adrian Peterson via trade, and revealed that the team will likely add another running back in the draft.

"It wouldn't surprise me at all," McFadden said. "I'm a guy who's been in the league seven, eight years now. A team doesn't want to just put their everything on a guy. ... I feel like they're going to take a running back, and it's not going to be something that changes how I feel about the team. I'm a competitive guy, it'll bring out the best in me."

by Igor Mello |

The Cowboys moved quickly after the departure of DeMarco Murray, agreeing to terms on a two-year deal with former Raiders running back Darren McFadden, reports Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram on Friday. The deal with worth up to $5.85 million with $200,000 in bonus incentives, per Todd Archer of ESPN.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was reportedly tempted to draft McFadden out of Arkansas in 2008, but instead he went to the Raiders at No. 4 in the draft. McFadden, 27, totaled 4,247 yards and 25 rushing touchdowns in his seven-year run with the Raiders. He played in all 16 games for the first time in his career last season, totaling 534 yards and two touchdowns on the ground.

He joins fellow running backs Lance Dunbar, Joseph Randle and Ryan Williams in Dallas.

Raiders not expected to re-sign RB Darren McFadden
by Larry Hartstein |

With expectations sky-high for Latavius Murray in 2015, the Raiders aren't expected to re-sign impending free agent running back Darren McFadden, reports McFadden, 27, averaged 3.4 yards per carry this season and has not had a good year since 2011.

Oakland also is expected to part ways with 29-year-oold running back Maurice Jones-Drew, saving the team $2.5 million.

Murray, 25, averaged 5.2 yards on his 82 carries and will enter next season as the starter.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden tallies 54 yards vs. Bills
by R.J. White |

Raiders running back Darren McFadden rushed for 54 yards on just nine carries in his team's 26-24 win over the Bills in Week 16.

McFadden's 25-yard carry in the fourth quarter was a flashback to his days as one of the elite running backs in the league, as he was able to cut through the defense before being forced out of bounds at the one-yard line. The 25-yard pickup was his longest rush of the season. He did take a backseat to Latavius Murray in the win, touching the ball 10 times to 26 for the starter. McFadden will likely serve as a complementary back again when the Raiders face the Broncos in Week 17.
