Free Agency is well under way and has already given us some huge stories within the first few hours.

Darrelle Revis has made the move across the AFC East from the New England Patriots to the New York Jets whilst Ndamukong Suh is set to sign with the Miami Dolphins.

Julius Thomas has reportedly signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Seattle Seahawks have traded for tight-end Jimmy Graham.

Several high profile players have already made headlines today and there is little doubt that more headlines will be made in the coming weeks.

One of the top free agents on the market however, DeMarco Murray is still set to sure up his future despite there being multiple teams interested.

Murray wants a big money deal which the Dallas Cowboys were unable to provide despite him becoming the top runningback in the NFL last year.

The Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars are two teams interested in acquiring the services of Murray but it is a third that has made headlines.

The Philadelphia Eagles are looking for a runningback following the trade of LeSean McCoy and the fallen through signing of Frank Gore who chose the Indianapolis Colts over the Eagles.

With the Eagles trying to recruit Murray to move to Philadelphia, safety Malcolm Jenkins did his part on Twitter.

This led to a response by Murray's former Dallas Cowboys team-mate and the man who received the Cowboys franchise tag this year, Dez Bryant.

Who knows specifically what Bryant is talking about here, but it is clear that he doesn't want his former team-mate to move to the Cowboys divisional rival.

The big winners?

Whoever should eventually land Murray will surely be considered the biggest winner in free agency this year.

However the offense who would improve the most could end up being the Jacksonville Jaguars if they land Murray.

Having already signed former Denver Broncos tight-end Julius Thomas, the Jaguars could eventually end up with two of the three top free agents on the market this year.
