The team has reportedly signed free agent Darren McFadden as their new back. He has reportedly agreed to a two-year deal; however, financial terms have not been disclosed.
Just this morning, there was talk that the Cowboys would draft Melvin Gordon III, previously of the Wisconsin Badgers. But it is not clear if Gordon will be there when the Cowboys draft pick comes around.
McFadden had a little more than 600 yards in his season while playing the entire season. He only had one 1,000 yard rushing seasons in his career.
Murray, who the Cowboys wouldn’t break the bank for, is the reigning rushing leader. They would only go as high as $6 million to keep him, but the Philadelphia Eagles have him an additional $2.2 million to send him packing.
With a strong offensive line in Dallas, McFadden could be a 1,000 yard rusher again there are a number of factors that will come into play too.
