DeMarco Murray rewards O-linemen with iMacs

DeMarco Murray broke Jim Brown's 56-year-old record for consecutive 100-yard games to start a season on Sunday. To celebrate this achievement, the Dallas Cowboys running back has rewarded his thriving offensive line.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported Wednesday that Murray gave each of Dallas' starting linemen a new iMac desktop computer this week. The computers retail around $1,300 a pop.

"That just shows how much respect he has for us, how much he appreciates us, so it's a great gift," guard Ronald Leary said.

Murray leads the NFL with 913 rushing yards and seven touchdowns on 187 carries this season. He is on pace to challenge Eric Dickerson's 30-year-old single-season rushing record.

It was a noble act of generosity by Murray, with bonus points added for doing it in the midst of a season, as opposed to after, as is customary in these situations. Reggie Bush's gift of Segways remains our favorite and most ridiculous gift to the grunts.

The baller move of all-time, however, belongs to New York Jets great Curtis Martin, who bought his entire line Rolex watches after he won the rushing title in 2004. Murray will need a raise from Jerrah to make something like that possible.
