DeMarco Murray met with Jason Garrett about potential Dallas Cowboys return

DeMarco Murray's future has been completely up in the air the past few weeks, with nobody really knowing what he is going to do in free agency.

The running back could end up in any number of places with the Philadelphia Eagles, Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars all interested in bringing Murray. Then you've got the Dallas Cowboys, who may have just gotten a big boost in the race to sign the Pro Bowler.

According to a tweet from Cowboys reporter Mike Fish of 105.3 The Fan, Murray met with Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett at a Dallas Mavericks game last night to discuss coming back to AT&T Stadium in 2015 and beyond.

If Garrett can talk Murray round into rejoining Dallas then that will be an absolutely incredible feat from the 'Ginger General.' Something tells me however that unless Garrett could whip out a chequebook and promise Murray the money he wants, then he has relatively little power in any discussions. 

It seems that money is the overriding theme in the DeMarco Murray saga and after his incredible season where he was the best running back in the NFL by a mile, Murray wants to get paid for his talents.

That's not promising for Cowboys fans, who, after putting the franchise tag on wide receiver Dez Bryant rather than Murray, are somewhat limited with how much they can offer Murray thanks to a less-than ideal salary cap position.

According to ESPN, the Cowboys hope to make a "respectable" offer to Murray, which we can all figure out actually means 'not as much as every single other team is offering.' 

There is some good news in that ESPN piece however. Murray's representatives have finally spoken to the Cowboys for the first time in weeks.

It's unlikely this will lead to the 27-year old adding the Cowboys back into his Twitter bio and the like. Although his FaceBook relationship status might get an update to something more like 'It's Complicated.'

We'll have to wait and see if Garrett has worked his wonders, or if DeMarco Murray ends up playing his football outside of JerryWorld in 2015.
