MJD Has Cowboys Thinking DeMarco Murray

MJD Has Cowboys Thinking DeMarco Murray
Posted March 28th, 2014 @ 1:50pm

From SI:

Free-agent running back Maurice Jones-Drew has agreed to a three-year contract with the Oakland Raiders, Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area reported Thursday night.

The former Jacksonville Jaguar is scheduled to undergo a physical on Friday morning before the deal becomes official.

According to Bair, Jones-Drew — an Oakland, Calif., native — met with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie on Thursday evening and representatives then agreed to a deal.

If MJD is signed to the same 3 year, $10 million deal that other running backs are getting this offseason, should the Cowboys lock up DeMarco Murray now?

Murray will make $1.406 million in 2014 as part of his rookie deal. Could the Cowboys split the difference and go $2 million per season?

If he was durable, the Cowboys most likely would have this deal done.  But the smarter move is to let this drag for the next month and a half.  Wait until the NFL Draft.  If there is a RB like Randle last year, make a pick.  If not, Jerry can sign Murray.  

Yet more flexibility for the Cowboys in this offseason! Who would have guessed?
