The Eagles have made a lot of news signing players and extending some.

But the elephant in the room remains:

What about big bucks bust running back Demarco Murray?

Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Boy Roseman told Pro Football Talk Live that his impression is Murray wants to return to the Birds next year.

“My takeaway from my last conversation was, he wants to be here,” Roseman said. “This is a place he wants to have a tremendous amount of success at similar to his time with Dallas. I think sometimes we forget, a year at this time he’s coming off the NFL offensive player of the year. That’s a tremendous accomplishment to be able to do that and we’re not talking about five or six years ago, we’re talking about last year.”

Murray’s 2015 season was little resemblance to his final season in Dallas, rushing for just 702 yards and six carries.

Along the way, Murray reportedly voiced his displeasure over both head coach Chip Kelly and Duce Staley to owner Jeffrey Lurie late last season.

After the NFL Network reported that Murray was still unhappy and the Eagles would be open to listening to trade offers, the Dallas Morning News reported that the Cowboys ‘would love’ to take Murray back, despite his $13 million cap number in 2016.

Despite Murray reportedly being unhappy with his role, Roseman is confident that in a new system, the 28-year-old will return to form.

“I think all we can do is project going forward what we see and the skill-set he has,” Roseman said. “It’s easy to see a tremendous amount of skill that he possesses.”
