DeMarco Murray really wants to stay with the Dallas Cowboys, but the former Oklahoma Sooner understands the free agency process.
“Obviously I think they want me here,” Murray said Tuesday, via ESPN Dallas. “I want to be here. It’s just finding the … just what helps them, what helps me. Things like that. I think both sides want to be here, so I think we’ll see where it goes.”
“At the end of the day, it’s all about respect, and I think different people show their appreciation in different ways,” Murray said. “I don’t need a pat on the back. I don’t need someone telling me how good I am on a constant basis and whatnot like that. I understand my value, so to speak, and I understand what I bring to the table.”
It sounds like the Boys are just trying to pat him on the back to take a deal and not the deal he is thinking. This could get ugly if the Cowboys play the cheap route.
