Howdy, Cowboy: The Eagles land Demarco Murray


Something to smile about: The Eagles sign Demarco Murray, as Jerry Jones’ heart sinks.

It may be the offseason, but the Eagles have pulled off a rousing victory over the Dallas Cowboys: they landed RB Demarco Murray. Whether you trust in Chip Kelly, or many of his transactions over the past week have left you scratching your head, this is one move that makes sense. In the wake of the loss of LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills, the Birds needed a star in the backfield, and that is exactly what they have gotten with Murray, who reportedly inked a 5-year deal with $21 million in guaranteed money.

There have been so many developments over the past day it’s enough to make even Adam Schefter need a moment to breathe. Here are some of the best stories recapping another crazy day in Eagles free agency:
