What he’s seen throughout the offseason and training camp from backs like Lance Dunbar and Joseph Randle has Cowboys RB DeMarco Murray feeling more comfortable about taking a breather in 2014.
“[Dunbar] and Randle are going to have an important role this year and those are guys that not only do I trust, but the coaches trust,” Murray said Wednesday. “Me not wanting to come out last year was because I wasn’t sure if things would go right, but these guys playing the way they play and practice the way they practice, I’m very confident that if I come out they can continue to carry the load and do some great things for us.”
This is not earth-shattering news but it speaks to the workload that Murray is expecting heading into the season. He may not be quite the bellcow he has been in recent years. He saw nearly 65% of the carries in 2013, but only played 14 games.
