DeMarco Murray not bothered if he has to leave Dallas Cowboys

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.

At the moment Bryant is very obviously winning that battle and it seems Murray knows it, with his quotes today coming across as a man not bothered where he plays his football as long as it's on a contender.

Dallas or Anywhere

Murray was speaking yesterday before a dinner sponsored by Hublot watches and said that he is relaxed and has no specific concerns about staying with the Cowboys.

“No, not at all. It’s just not [stressful],” Murray said. “I feel like whatever the case may be, if I’m here, think it going be great situation, If it’s going to be somewhere else it’s going to be a great situation."

“It’s not about the yards for me,” Murray said according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It’s about winning a Super Bowl. If this place gives me the best chance I’m going to stay here. Winning a Super Bowl means more than anything.”

Murray admitted that he wanted to take full advantage of his excellent play last year and capitalize in free agency with a luctraive 

“I think you hear that a lot. Everyone’s talking about the devaluing a running back and he’s blah blah blah. I’m 26 and I feel like I haven’t even entered my prime yet," Murray said.

"Like I said, wherever I go next year, I think I’m just getting started and I don’t worry about trying to get the most here, trying to get the there. Obviously it has to be the right opportunity, the right team for me and like I said since Day 1 my goal is to simply win a championship.”

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.
