NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport confirmed Tuesday the star wide receiver is "not going anywhere."
At last check, Dallas had a four-year deal worth slightly more than $16 million on the table, according to Rapoport.
It's an insulting offer for a player who was saddled up to carry the team on his legs for the majority of the franchise's best season in nearly a decade. On the other hand, it connotes an awareness of the NFL's ongoing devaluation of the position and the effects of a career-high 497 touches for a previously injury-prone tailback who was never viewed as a franchise workhorse.
Unless the Cowboys pry the coffers wide open, Murray will likely test free agency.
Even if borderline starting running backs are now paid like kickers and punters, a star of Murray's caliber can do better than $4 million annually on the open market.
