Could the Dallas Cowboys be set to turn to Ray Rice?

Published 15 Comments

The Dallas Cowboys are certainly having a strange off-season following the loss of their star runningback DeMarco Murray.

Murray was the leading rusher in the NFL last season and has now made the move to the Cowboys NFC East rivals the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles have signed former Oakland Raiders runningback Darren McFadden but there are questions surrounding his abilities.

The Cowboys were expected to pull off some draft day magic in order to move higher up than their 27th pick and try to secure one of the top running back prospects.

That didn't happen and everyone is wondering just what the plan is in Dallas and what solutions they could have to their running back problem?

There have been whispers of Adrian Peterson all through the off-season but could they now be targeting another previously suspended NFL star?

Some reports have now claimed however that the Cowboys could be set to reach out to former Baltimore Ravens runningback Ray Rice.

Rice is still looking for a team despite having been re-instated from his suspension which was overturned towards the end of 2014.

Very few teams have been reported to have contacted Rice since his re-instatement but has yet to give up on his chances of continuing his career.

Rice was suspended indefinitely following the infamous release of video footage of the domestic violence incident between him and his then fiancée.

But could Rice be set to become the second controversial player signed by the Cowboys this off-season?

Controversially Signed

The Cowboys have already signed one controversial player for next year after signing former Carolina Panthers defensive lineman Greg Hardy.

Hardy will already miss a large portion of next season following his suspension which will rule him out for the first 10 games of next season.
