Report: DeMarco Murray, Eagles have ‘mutual interest’

DeMarco Murray erased his affiliation with the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday on Twitter.

According to Adam Scheffer, it has something to do with the fact the Cowboys haven’t called him since last week.

But one team that is calling? Their NFC East foe Philadelphia Eagles.

According Adam Caplan of ESPN and confirmed by Pro Football Talk, the two parties have "mutual interest."

The Eagles need a running back after (alledgedly) failing to acquire Frank Gore and trading LeSean McCoy, and Murray needs money.

Eagles defensive back Malcolm Jenkins is already recruiting Murray.

A move to an NFC East rival will certainly make things a little bitter between the Joneses and McCoy.

But nothing is official yet. Murray is also reportedly in the conversation for the Jaguars, Bucs and Raiders.

But then again, Jerry Jones doesn’t seem like the type of man that likes to lose.

FOX Sports’ Peter Schrager is reporting the Cowboys are still the favorite to land Murray.
