DeMarco Murray On McCoy’s Comments: ‘It’s Funny’
Two days after GQ published comments from LeSean McCoy saying he doesn’t view DeMarco Murray as one of the best running backs in the NFL, Murray responded to the former Eagle.
“At some point, you have to move on with your life and career,” Murray said today after practice. “It’s funny.”
Before commenting on McCoy, Murray discussed how he feels heading into the year after carrying the ball 392 times for Dallas last season. He said his legs feel “great” and are “really, really fresh” because of Chip Kelly’s plan to limit his training camp repetitions.
He’s also not concerned about splitting carries with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles.
“Rhythm is key and especially as the game goes on, I feel like I get stronger and better,” Murray said. “But I think we have a great rotation plan and I’ll get my touches.”
The running back explained that he doesn’t mind dividing the workload because although he wants to “lead the group,” he’s focused on winning. He also replied decisively when asked if this is the best group of running backs he’s ever been a part of.
“Yeah, definitely,” Murray said. “[It’s] one of the hardest working groups that I’ve ever been a part of so I think that speaks volumes.”
