Murray, 27, led the league in rushing last season, rushing for 1,845 yards on 392 attempts and scoring 13 touchdowns.
The Sam Bradford trade is starting to make more sense now, with Murray telling Eagles coach Chip Kelly about his desire to play in the spread offense and with former Oklahoma teammate.
Murray said that the deal wasn’t about money, but the chance to win a Super Bowl which he thinks he can accomplish in Philadelphia.
The Eagles traded away their starting running back LeSean McCoy last week and also agreed to a deal with Ryan Mathews yesterday. When Mathews was asked if he will still sign the deal he agreed to he told Adam Schefter, “We shall see.”
This now leaves you wondering if the Adrian Peterson to Dallas trade will start gaining some traction.
