Based on his understanding of Murray's situation, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport cautioned on Monday's edition of NFL Total Access that there's a "slim chance" Murray will return to Dallas once the free-agent market opens next week.
It's rare for a player of Murray's caliber to give his former team a chance to match a lucrative offer once the new team has the star in the building.
If Murray does defect from Texas, how would his market shape up in the era of the devalued running back?
Rapoport rattled off four teams as potential suitors:
3. Jacksonville Jaguars: Signed to take over the backfield a year ago, Toby Gerhart is now ticketed for a jack-of-all-trades role, including H-back responsibilities. Denard Robinson showed potential last season, but his boom-or-bust style is more suited to a complementary role. The Jags have more cap room than any other team.
