[NFL]: DALLAS COWBOYS LOSE DEMARCO MURRAY, SIGN RAIDERS DARREN McFADDEN AS REPLACEMENT


The Dallas Cowboys got over the loss of DeMarco Murray pretty quickly, although that doesn’t mean they are better off for it.

The Cowboys announced today they have agreed to terms with Darren McFadden, who has spent all of his injury plagued career with the Raiders. McFadden will not put up the same type of numbers Murray did, but if he can stay healthy he is not a bad option.

In seven seasons with the Oakland Raiders, McFadden ran for 4,247 yards on 1,038 carries and 25 touchdowns. He also caught 211 passes for 1,769 yards and five touchdowns, but he has struggled with injuries throughout his career.

The deal with the Cowboys is for two years and is worth up to $5.85 million and includes a $200,000 bonus, the source said.

The Cowboys are hoping that playing behind an offensive line that features three Pro Bowlers (Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin) and is considered one of the best lines in football will finally see him produce the way the Raiders expected when they took him in the first round of the 2008 draft.
