EAGLES’ DEMARCO MURRAY WANTS TO STAY AND GET A FRESH START

By Harry Allison

The media are filled with the comments of Eagles players on the firing of coach Chip Kelly.

But the one player whose presence in Philly was totally a chip thing was free agent running back DeMarco Murray, whom the Eagles signed last March.

On Thursday, Murray met with the media for the first time since Kelly was relieved of his duties and said he and Kelly have spoken since Tuesday and wished each other well.

“You never wish that on anyone,” said Murray, whose play in 2015 has been sub-par. “It’s a fresh start for everybody.”

Murray said there were some schematic things that could have been done differently while discussing the disappointments of this season, but that players also needed to play better if they wanted to avoid this outcome.

There were also reports this season that Murray would like to return to the Cowboys after leading the league in rushing for them in 2014. Murray was asked Thursday if he thought Kelly’s departure would impact his future with the Eagles and said “as long as they want to keep me, I want to stay.”

That’s one of many questions for the Eagles to mull as they decide how much of their fresh start to use on rolling back the moves Murray made when he took over control of the team’s personnel department last offseason.
