DeMarco Murray is visiting the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday with a financial agreement already in place, according to multiple media reports.
NFL.com said early Thursday morning that there was a sense within the league that Murray's preference was to remain in Dallas, where he has played all four of his pro seasons, and that the 2014 rushing champ was using free agency as leverage for a more lucrative contract with the Cowboys.
Some analysts suggested that the Eagles would have an edge after trading for former St. Louis Rams quarterback Sam Bradford, a good friend and former Oklahoma teammate of Murray's.
But surely Murray has plenty of friends with the Cowboys as well, so who knows which team he will end up choosing.
Oh, yeah, the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders are supposedly in the mix too, but really?
