What a difference a year makes. Actually, what a difference a team makes. After leading the NFL in rushing in 2014 with the Dallas Cowboys, DeMarco Murray ran for just 702 yards with the Phillidalphia Eagles last year. It is safe to say that Chip Kelly’s offense did not work well with Murray’s style of running. The Eagles decided to trade Murray to the Tennessee Titans this offseason.
The 28-year-old running back is excited to be on a team that allows him to run downhill and even appeared on the Jim Rome Show saying:
“It’s strictly downhill and that’s what I’ve been accustomed to my entire life. Nothing against last year or what happened, it just didn’t work out, but I’m very excited about this upcoming season and looking forward to it.”
Murray is determined to get back to his 2014 production and added, “But I think from both seasons, I took some positives things from it and learned and appreciated the game more and appreciated the time you have to play the sport. Obviously, it was tough last year, and I’m just looking for a huge back-bounce year this year.”
