DeMarco Murray seems to have finally come to terms with the fact that he won't be playing for the Dallas Cowboys next season.
The star running back - far and away the best in the entire National Football League last season - is seemingly headed for the exit at JerryWorld with the Cowboys having to essentially make a decision between Murray and wide receiver Dez Bryant.

Murray had an absolutely incredible season that seems to be forgotten about. He was the NFL offensive player of the year and named first team All Pro, thanks to the 1,845 yards he accrued in 2014.
