Many Eagles fans were irate when the team dealt running back LeSean McCoy. Today, the team found his replacement – a younger, better version of McCoy.
The team has agreed to terms with running back DeMarco Murray on a five-year deal worth $42 million with $21 million guaranteed.
Murray was the hardest working back in the game last season, going for a career-high 392 rushing attempts for 1,845 yards.
The Eagles revamped their running back core not only with the signing of Murray, but also the team came to terms with running back Ryan Mathews Wednesday on a three-year deal.
DeMarco Murray's deal with Eagles is expected to be 5 years, $42 million, including $21 million guaranteed, per @mortreport and I.
