Cowboys offered DeMarco Murray four-year deal

DeMarco Murray is off to a strong start this season for the Dallas Cowboys. Currently Murray’s 534 yards rushing are tops in the NFL and that has not gone unnoticed by those in Dallas.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport the Cowboys offered Murray a four-year contract that would have paid him more than any free agent running back earned in 2014.

Murray has had trouble staying on the field for the Cowboys but Rapoport added that the Cowboys want to make “absolutely sure they have him for years to come.”

Armed with a young offensive line and an ability to stay upright once hit this year, Murray has racked up 5.4 yards per attempt.
