The top remaining free agent on the open market may not remain unsigned for too long. Dallas Cowboys running back and reigning NFL Offensive Players of the Year DeMarco Murray will meet with his team’s division rival in Philadelphia on Thursday.
So DeMarco Murray is flying to Philadelphia, C.J. Spiller is flying to New Orleans and RBs are going to start flying off the board.

This comes on the heels of new Eagles quarterback Sam Bradford attempting to recruit his former Oklahoma roommate to Philadelphia. It also comes with the Oakland Raiders reportedly offering the star running back the most money.
Both the Dallas Cowboys and Jacksonville Jaguars are also interested in Murray’s services.
Interestingly enough, Murray spent Tuesday night attending a Dallas Mavericks game and meeting with Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett.
At this point, it could be said that Murray is using the Jaguars and Raiders to leverage a larger deal from either the Cowboys or Eagles. Heck, he could be using Philadelphia to leverage a bigger deal from Dallas.
