The future of NFL Offensive Player of the Year, DeMarco Murray looks increasingly likely to lie away from the Dallas Cowboys after recent developments.
With 2015 free agency officially opening in a matter of hours, the star running back is amongst the most high profile players available and any potential suitors will be buoyed by news today that suggests Murray's relationship with the Cowboys is strained at best.
Evidence of DeMarco Murray's apathy to the Cowboys at present began with eagle-eyed fans who noticed a change to his official Twitter account. NFL guru Adam Schefter then added to the debate with his own worrying revelation.

In the modern world you can tell a lot by someone's social media account and, looking at the recent changes to DeMarco Murray's it appears he isn't exactly 'a Cowboy until told otherwise.'
As the tweet above alludes to, the complete cleansing of any Cowboys reference certainly seems ominous - especially considering his infrequent use of the account.

Of course, Murray will, in a matter of hours, be a free agent. As such, he will not be officially associated with the Dallas Cowboys and perhaps the move is simply a way to hint to other franchises that he is available and without commitments.
After a 2014 campaign that saw him rack up more than 500 yards more than any other running back in the league, and grab 13 touchdowns along the way, this isn't exactly the update Cowboys fans were hoping for as the 2015 NFL season officially gets underway.
Adam Schefter's update in the aftermath of Murray's social media statement then only make matters worse.
The fact that the Dallas Cowboys have opted against making contact with one of their most prized assets in the seven days preceding free agency suggests he isn't long for the AT&T Stadium.
With negotiations having been ongoing for months, and having gone through troubling times in the past, it appears that the Dallas front office may well have cut their loses on DeMarco Murray. Either that, or they are playing the ultimate game of 'treat 'em mean, keep 'em keen' as they wait to see what lucrative offers other team's throw Murray's way.
It is believed he is seeking in the range of $10 million a season on any new deal.
What do you think Cowboys fans? Have we seen the last of DeMarco Murray in a Cowboys jersey, and are Dallas right not to be held to ransom by the running back? Let us know in the comments section below...
