Dez Bryant took to social media to let all of Cowboys Nation know he wants DeMarco Murray to come home to Dallas. He tagged both Tony Romo and Jason Witten in the tweet that blew up Twitter Thursday.

Dez Bryaant and DeMarco Murray

When reports surfaced that DeMarco Murray and the Eagles were in a stand-off in regards to contact negotiations, Bryant didn’t hesitate to invite him back to the Cowboys.

Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray both had career seasons in 2014. Murray won the NFL rushing crown and Dez Bryant not only made all pro, but led the NFL with 16 touchdowns: breaking the single season record previously held by former Cowboys’ wide receiver, Terrell Owens.

The Eagles stance is that Murray followed up an outstanding 2014 campaign with the worst season of his career. The new staff is concerned that he can’t repeat that record breaking performance. However, the Eagles offensive line was among the worst in the NFL when it came to run blocking.

Chip Kelly allowing Pro Bowl guard Evan Mathis to make his way to Denver in free agency, had an ill effect on the running game. The nine year veteran, Allen Babre, has only started 64 of a 144 possible games, and only saw action in one in 2014.  Third year RG, Matt Tobin, is a tad undersized at 290 lbs and unable to get much push. Eleven year veteran, All-Pro LT Jason Peters, has dealt with nagging injuries and father time has obviously taken his toll. DeMarco Murray was set up to fail in Philadelphia.

Murray has doubts about his role in the offense moving forward and if he ends up getting released, Dez Bryant, who has been deemed a vocal leader on the team, made it clear he wants him to come home.

It has been reported that Murray is building a permanent home in Dallas. Questions remain as to whether or not he can return to his 2014 form, but hey, if the price is right, I agree with Dez Bryant: come on home to Dallas. I am sure there wouldn’t be any complaints from Tony Romo or Jason Witten. After all,  it’s hard to replicate the chemistry he had with the Cowboys’ offensive line.

    Al, i truly don’t want his ass back to Dallas. We should draft a RB of the future. I prefer we do that next year because the RB crop next year is quite special. A Nick Chubb would make me very happy.

      I don’t mind if he is “cheap” to hold us over until we draft and develop a rookie.

        By saying that, you’re a much better man than i lol. I guess i am commenting from a fan’s perspective as to you, a scout. I would just not rooting for him ever again bro, but i know what you’re saying though.

        • Al

          Unfortunately, I have to be objective and can’t allow my personal feelings about him ditching his team for money interfere with a smart football decision lol.

            I understand completely.

            Well Dallas cheated him, by offering him such a low contract, he wanted to be here, but Dallas I believe only offered him 5 million. I would only bring him back at a team friendly deal, then I draft a guy in round 5 or later.

          • Al

            I thought they offered him more than that. Personally I would have told Dez to hit the road when he held out. There is not a receiver in the NFL worth $70 million. It makes you go short at other positions. NE never spends big on skill positions and that’s why they are so good. They have balance by not over-paying players.

            we offered 6 mil a year and sheagles offered 8 per year if my memory is correct. They were about 2 mil a year higher.I don’t blame guys for going for the money as most only get a shot at one good contract. Have to look out for your family as the average NFL career is only about 4 or 5 years. He and DM both did pretty good and aren’t shifty, but straight line guys. Derrick Henry fits that mold well but would have to be 2nd pick and that’s where we should get a DT.

          • Al

            DT is a must. However, this is the deepest DT class I have seen in years. Depending on what teams are prioritizing this year, there may still be day one starters in the 3rd round. I would be content with a guy like Dixon at RB in round three as well.

          • BigDIndiana

            If it was my call I wouldn’t chance going to the 3rd without a DT. If Reed, Billings, Butler, Day and Hargrove are there I would pick my favorite and turn it in. Might be a long time before we get a shot at ones this good in the second. Especially if we start picking mid to late 2nd again.
