13 MILLION REASONS WHY DEMARCO MURRAY WILL BE AN EAGLE IN ’16

By Peter Gleason

This morning’s question, dear readers, is:

Will underachieving, big bucks back DeMarco Murray be in Eagles midnight green next season.

There are 13 million reasons to say yes!

The potential roadblock to cutting Murray’s is the $13 million in dead money against the salary cap in 2016 if the running back is cut or somehow traded. The cap hit is actually cheaper if they keep him — $8 million.

Whether they dump Murray in 2016 or wait until 2017, it will cost them $13 million anyway. The only difference is the money gets spread out over two seasons instead of one.

If the Eagles get rid of Murray in 2017, it still costs the team $5 million in dead money. Combine with his $8 million cap hit next season, and we get $13.
