The Dallas Cowboys and star RB DeMarco Murray are apparently far apart on terms of a new contract.
The Cowboys have reportedly offered the Pro Bowl and All-Pro RB Murray a four-year, $16 million contract – peanuts for a player that led the league in rushing yards and yards from scrimmage while 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).
Murray, who is also a candidate for NFL MVP and Offensive Player of the Year, 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 single-season records held by Hall of Fame RB Emmitt Smith.
The Cowboys only have a few months to reach a new deal with Murray before he becomes a free agent and available for any NFL team to sign.
