DeMarco Murray to visit the Eagles

Dallas Cowboys free agent running back DeMarco Murray is going to visit the Philadelphia Eagles, according to ESPN. Murray personally reached out to Eagles coach Chip Kelly and said he wanted to play with former Oklahoma roommate and quarterback Sam Bradford. Now, the Eagles are flying him in for a visit even after signing former San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews. Murray was the NFL rushing champion last season. "Absolutely. I've been trying my hardest," Bradford said Wednesday of trying to recruit Murray. "I've called him. I've texted him. I've done everything. We've been in communication. If we can somehow land him, it would be a great pickup. Not only is he a great player, he's a great person. He's a really close friend of mine, too. I think he can really help this ball club."
