DeMarco Murray headed to Philadelphia-- Thu Mar 12 1:00 pm --
"It was never about the money in any situation" Murray said
DeMarco Murray, the NFL's leading rusher in 2014 for the Dallas Cowboys, is jumping ship and joining the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles.
"It was never about the money in any situation," Murray texted ESPN.com's Todd Archer. "If it was the money, I could've taken that a long time ago on a very high deal. It's about winning a Super Bowl and being fair."(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Taking Murray at his word, it's interesting that he thinks he has better chance at winning a Super Bowl in Philadelphia than he does in Dallas. Murray is expected to get $21 million guaranteed. Ryan Mathews agreed to a deal with Philadelphia yesterday but has yet to officially sign the contract. He may chose to abandon the situation now that Murray is in the mix.
Eagles agree with RB Ryan Mathews-- Wed Mar 11 2:08 pm --
FF Today's Take:The deal is reportedly worth $11.5 million that includes $5 million guaranteed. There are also rumors that this signing doesn't necessarily mean the Eagles will stop pursuing DeMarco Murray. We shall see. If not, Mathews should see his fantasy value jump in Chip Kelly's high-volume offense, assuming he can stay healthy. Mathews missed eleven games last season with ankle and knee injuries. If no other backs are brought into the mix, Mathews will carry RB2 value into drafts with low-end RB1 upside.
