NFC Notes: Murray, Lewis, Hocker, Vikings

If DeMarco Murray wants to discuss his next contract, Cowboys COO Stephen Jones is all ears, writes Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News.

We certainly wouldn’t be against that,” Jones said Monday on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM]. “Long term, we’ve told DeMarco that we’d love to have him here. At the end of the day, it’s no different than Dez [Bryant], we want to keep our good players and DeMarco is one of them. I think I said something to that effect in camp. He’s a guy that we would like to see stay here long term. He’s certainly only increased our desire to have him stay.”

Here are some other notes from around the NFL this Monday:

  • Former Bills’ quarterback Thaddeus Lewis tried out for the Rams on Monday, reports Field Yates of (via Twitter). Lewis started five games for the Bills in 2013, and spent time with the Rams, Browns, and Lions before that.
  • Former Arkansas kicker Zach Hocker visited the Redskins, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post (on Twitter).
  • In the thick of the Adrian Peterson controversy, one of the Vikings‘ major sponsors, the Radisson Hotel suspended their sponsorship of the team, reports the Associated Press in USA Today“We are closely following the situation and effective immediately, Radisson is suspending its limited sponsorship of the Minnesota Vikings while we evaluate the facts and circumstances,” the company said in a statement.
