DeMarco Murray reportedly not happy with Cowboys $4 million a year offer

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has labelled the prospect of re-signing Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray as financially unreasonable.

Both players starred for the Cowboys this season, but currently Dallas have only offered Murray a $4 million dollar a year deal. Reports suggest the star running back will be allowed to hit free agency this off-season.

Ridiculous offer 

Considering the incredible effort of Murray this season, who managed 1,845 yards and 4.7 yards a carry during the regular season, there is no wonder that Murray and his representatives have reportedly scoffed at the offer. 

"At last check, Dallas had a four-year deal worth slightly more than $16 million on the table, according to Rapoport. It's an insulting offer for a player who was saddled up to carry the team on his legs for the majority of the franchise's best season in nearly a decade," reported this week. 

Murray likely to go elsewhere 

It's highly likely that as a result of this major undervaluation of Murray's ability that the star running back will look elsewhere this offseason. 

San Francisco 49ers are likely to lose Frank Gore in free agency and they could be willing to replace the money they've used for Gore on Murray. However, another option could be Buffalo Bills, who have plenty of cap space available. 

It remains to be seen where Murray will end up next season, but it's highly likely that after a season of success he will want to go somewhere that has a chance to win a championship. But, as we know, money talks. So we might have to wait and see on that one. 

Packers & NBA update
