Report: DeMarco Murray to Visit Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles have made plenty of changes to the offense this offseason, through the additions of quarterback Sam Bradford and running back Ryan Mathews, replacing Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy.
So then what's next for the Eagles' plan of attack to fix the offense?
For starters, Pro Bowl running back DeMarco Murray. Confirming Yahoo's Charles Robinson report that Murray's "top choice" is to play for the Eagles. The Eagles have interest in the reigning rushing champion, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Murray will be in Philadelphia for an official free agent visit today.
Murray was allowed to hit free agency after the Cowboys choose to franchise wide receiver Dez Bryant. In 2014, Murray led the NFL in carries (392), rushing yards (1,845) and touchdowns (13), while his 2,261 yards from scrimmage were 13th most all time.
It's worth mentioning Murray and new Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford attended school together at Oklahoma and remain close friends. Bradford said today during his press conference that he has been trying to recruit Murray to Philadelphia.
"I've been trying my hardest (to get Murray here), I've called him, I've texted him, I've done everything. We've been in communication, I think if we could somehow land DeMarco it would be a great pick-up."
We'll see if he works, he could be seeking a contract of more than $8 million per season. The Cowboys reportedly offered $5 million annually, so it could come down to the Eagles beating that number.
