There’s a sentiment going around that DeMarco Murray‘s production can be replaced and Kevin Sherrington of The Dallas Morning News says that’s bogus. Of course, Murray isn’t the top priority this offseason, but Sherrington feels he should be retained if at all possible. Beyond the numbers, he argues, the Cowboys offense feeds off of the powerful running style of Murray. While you ponder that, here’s some news on Dallas’ No. 1 offseason priority..
- If Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant gets franchise tagged, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com cautions not be surprised when he chooses not to show his face for the rest of the spring until he is contractually required to do so.
- Bryant took to Twitter earlier today to voice his displeasure with the Cowboys, as the staff of The Dallas Morning News notes. When a follower said that he loves how dedicated the wide receiver is to the team, he responded: “I wish They felt the same way but it’s cool.. It’s #business“
- In response to Bryant expressing that he feels the Cowboys aren’t dedicated to him, club exec Stephen Jones said “[Dez] is definitely not feeling the right vibe,” according to Jason Cole of Bleacher Report (via Twitter). In Jones’ comments earlier today, he seemed to hint that the team will lean towards hitting the star receiver with the franchise tag.
