Offseason Training With Witten Prepped Murray For Big Workload
David Helman –

"IRVING, Texas – Standing roughly 15 feet away from the NFL’s leading rusher, Jason Witten seemed pretty prescient in choosing his workout partner for the offseason. DeMarco Murray continues to rack up carries – an average of 27 per game – on the way to an absurd output, as he’s on track for more than 400 carries and 2,000 yards. It’s fitting, then, that he chose a 12-year veteran at the physical tight end position to train with during the buildup to this season.“It helped a lot, obviously with the stamina aspect just building a good armor for your body so you can take some hits and take the pounding of a long season,” Murray said. “He’s done it for a long time and he’s someone who has had a lot of success in this league and he knows what to do to take care of your body in season and out of season.”Witten sported a knowing smile Friday when asked about his workout sessions with Murray.

While DeMarco Murray has run well regardless of the defensive front he has seen this season, he has had incredible success against 3-4 schemes. Against the San Francisco 49ers, Tennessee Titans, New Orleans Saints and Houston Texans, Murray has 106 carries for 570 yards.“There are some similarities but the players are different, the scheme is always different,” Murray said. “We’ve had a lot of 3-4 teams this year so we’re used to it. A lot of our previous games we’ve had some success against but it’s definitely hard to go against. They have some great players on the other side. We’ll have our hands full and we’re excited about the challenge.” Click the title to read more…"

Chris Wesseling –

"Robert Griffin III released a statement Friday, quoting Winston Churchill to relay the message that he’s not going to play again until his dislocated ankle is ready.“A quote that I stumbled upon during this process of being injured and being out was by Winston Churchill,” Griffin stated, via The Washington Times. “And it says, ‘Courage is what it takes to stand up and do something. Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.’ ” Click the title to read more…"

Jerry Jones may try to skirt new London rule in Super Bowl bid
Mike Florio – Pro Football Talk

"Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hopes to host another Super Bowl. (The next one preferably will come without a midweek ice storm — and with enough seats to match the tickets sold.) But Jones may refrain from making a bid if it means losing a home game to London.Or, more accurately, Jones possibly will make a bid that specifically excludes the new requirement to give up a future home game.“That will put a difficult caveat to our bid,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas/Ft. Worth on Friday, via Calvin Watkins of “We probably will make a bid. They tell you what they want in a bid, but you can make a bid without what they want in a bid…” Click the title to read more…"
