Report – DeMarco Murray and Eagles Headed for Stare-Down
DeMarco Murray is still unhappy.
According to a new report, the Philadelphia Eagles and their high priced running back are headed for a "stare-down" regarding his future with the organization.
The Ian Rapoport report cites several sources informed with the situation that a coaching change has not helped the situation and that Murray and the team are "not in a good place."
It seems that the lingering impact of a dismal 2015 season is still there where Murray averaged a career low 3.6 yards per attempt, including just a combined 85 yards in two games against his former team in the Dallas Cowboys.
Murray has not asked to be traded and/or released at this point, but that could change the longer this situation lingers into the off season.
If the Eagles were to release Murray it would cost the team $13 million against the salary cap. Murray signed a five-year, $40 million contract in the 2015 off season.
Rapoport mentions teams like the Seahawks, Cowboys and Raiders that could be interested in Murray if he's available, but it seems that a trade at this point remains unlikely.
