It’s not every day that you hear a member of the Dallas Cowboys say something nice about a member of the Eagles.
Hello, Joseph Randle, who was primary back-up last season for DeMarco Murray (above), who led the NFL with 1,845 rushing yards but left in free agency to cash in with Philly.
Randle, one of four players competing to be the Cowboys’ lead back, had a front-row seat last season to witness the best rushing season in club history. And even though Murray produced a season that Emmitt Smith never matched and had 484 more rushing yards than any other back in the league, Randle believes there was still more to gain.
“He had a good year last year, and I got to sit back and watch a lot,” Randle said, “and I felt like there was a lot of meat left on the bone.”
