Despite winning the NFL rushing title in 2014, Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray is not guaranteed to be re-signed by Dallas…
Dallas Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray, who won the NFL rushing title in 2014, wants to go where he can win a Super Bowl – even if it means leaving Dallas.

In an interview with the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Murray claimed he was more concerned with winning championships rather than getting yards.
“It’s not about the yards for me,” Murray said.
“It’s about winning a Super Bowl. If this place gives me the best chance I’m going to stay here. Winning a Super Bowl means more than anything.”
The Cowboys reportedly offered the NFL Offensive Player of the Year a four-year contract back in January worth $16 million. This is peanuts for a player that led the league in rushing yards and yards from scrimmage, especially considering All-Pro WR Dez Bryant will be guaranteed over $12 million next year if he gets hit with the franchise tag (promising him the average of the top five WR contracts in the league for a single year).
The Cowboys have also expressed far more interest in Bryant, and could be poised to make Bryant one of the highest paid offensive players in the NFL.
“I feel like whatever the case may be, if I’m here, think it going be great situation,” Murray said. “If it’s going to be somewhere else it’s going to be a great situation. Obviously I think they want me here. I want to be here… I think both sides want to be here, so I think we’ll see where it goes.”
Murray led the league with 392 touches, 1,845 rushing yards, 13 TDs, 115.3 yards/game and 2,261 yards from scrimmage. Murray’s marks in carries, yards/game and rushing yards broke the Cowboys single-season records held by Hall of Fame RB Emmitt Smith.
