While the NFL season is not technically not over the Dallas Cowboys have not played in weeks. Despite becoming a free agent in a few days, DeMarco Murray is not quite ready to talk about his future.
“I don’t know, I don’t know yet – it’s too early,” he said. “I’m just hanging out, relaxing with my family and enjoying life.”
Murray is coming off a career season in which he led the NFL is rushing with 1,845 yards while scoring 13 rushing touchdowns.
“Honestly, I haven’t gotten that far,” he said. “It’s only been a week and a half, two weeks removed from the season, so I’m still kind of fresh for me from the way it ended. I haven’t gotten that far yet.”
The Cowboys have remained hopeful that they can re-sign Murray but they also must work out a deal for wide receiver Dez Bryant. Murray told the team’s website that he would like to return next season.
“Those are guys that I’ve spent my entire career with, those are guys that I’ve become great friends with. I consider them my brothers, and I love playing with those guys,” he said. “We all play well together and we have a good thing going. You never know what’s going to happen, we’ll see what happens. But all you can do is hope for the best.”
The Cowboys are not expected to tender Lance Dunbar a contract despite being owed just $1.5 million. They did re-sign Ryan Williams to a deal that includes a $240K signing bonus and an average salary of $750K for 2015 and 2016.
