The NFL’s leading rusher may not have a new home for the 2015 season.

After flirting with free agency, DeMarco Murray is now expected to return to the Dallas Cowboys. Murray set a Cowboys record for rushing yards in a season while finding a way to stay healthy for the first time in his career.

Teams called upon Murray in free agency but the Cowboys offered him $5 million and it is starting to appear that the 27-year-old may not find a better offer. his 1,845 yards from a year ago well surpassed his previous career high. He also provided 13 rushing touchdowns and a career best 57 receptions for 416 yards.

For what its worth the Cowboys have made little to no effort to explore free agent running backs.
