Well the debate appears over the DeMarco Murray is heading to Philadelphia to be a member of the Eagles, The deal is reportedly worth five-years, $42 million with $21 million guaranteed. Apparently Dallas was not willing to come close in guaranteed dollars for their former star running back.
I believe Kelly was going to use Matthews as a backup running back from the beginning. When healthy Matthews can do damage on the field, but that has been few and far between. Now with Murray under contract, he will be your workhorse and you have Sproles and Matthews ready to go when DeMarco needs a breather in that high-octane offense. The “M&M tandem” might be just what the Eagles need.
