RB DeMarco Murray has agreed to terms with the Eagles

Star-Telegram - [Full Article]

DeMarco Murray flew to Philadelphia via private plane on Thursday and indeed agreed to a contract with Eagles.

Murray will get $42 million over five years, including $21 million in guaranteed money, per reports.

Although the Cowboys said they wanted Murray to return, they never came close to meeting his contract demands, citing the diminished value of the running back and the decline in production as they get older.

Fantasy Impact: 

Murray had a career year in his fourth season, racking up 2,261 total yards and 13 touchdowns on 449 touches. He should get plenty of work in Philadelphia, though the signing of Ryan Mathews and the presence of Darren Sproles indicate that he won’t approach 450 touches in 2015. LeSean McCoy averaged 353 touches over the past two seasons, so that’s probably Murray’s best-case scenario if everyone stays healthy. He’ll hold low-end RB1 value, though the presence of Mathews and Sproles may make that a stretch.
