Adrian Peterson To Dallas Rumors

Could this be the new face of the Cowboys running attack come next season?

The biggest story for the Dallas Cowboys this offseason is what will the Cowboys do regarding Des Bryant and Demarco Murray? We can’t afford both, and without one we will not be the same next year. The debate is which will be easier to replace? My opinion is that it is harder to replace a down field threat and playmaker like Dez. I believe that with our offensive line we can put any competent running back in our offense and be successful. With the most likely scenario being Murray becoming a free agent, we need to look at other options. One of the bigger rumors that is picking up steam is involving a running back that almost broke the single season rushing record.

There have rumors swirling about the possibilities of Adrian Peterson coming home to Dallas in order to replace Demarco Murray. This had been one the more popular rumors because of Peterson’s comments about wanting to return to his home state of Texas to play for the Cowboys. Last offseason rumors picked up after word got out that Peterson talked to owner Jerry Jones about the possibilities of Peterson eventually joining the Cowboys, and Jerry Jones liked the idea. The only way that this deal would be possible is if Peterson were to be cut and we signed him, or if the Cowboys were to trade for Peterson. Both of these scenarios however involve Peterson taking a pay cut, but the hope is that Peterson would give the Cowboys a hometown discount in order to bring the two together.

A Bleacher Report post said that the Cowboys have some interest in Peterson. When I saw this report I got excited with the idea of this happening. With more rumors suggesting that Murray is on his way out this looks like a serious options for the Cowboys to replace Murray. If the Cowboys do not think Joseph Randle will be able to fill the void that Murray will no doubt leave, the best option for the Cowboys to look at is free agency. There is no doubt that the Cowboys will take care of Dez Bryant first which leaves the Cowboys with question marks at running back. We should look at Adrian Peterson as a possibility especially if he is willing to take a pay cut. With one of the great running backs in the past couple of seasons, and combine him with arguably the best offensive line in football, the Cowboys will be an even more devastating offense come the 2015 season.

    Congratulations to the ‘Boys for an excellent campaign in 2014.

    How my REDSKINS stole one from you in DALLAS I cannot imagine. Possibly overlooked, your club came to D.C. on a mission. And the mission was accomplished in spades.

    Looking at your needs in 2015, this article headlines the problem of money and cap space where two of your best players are concerned.

    Meanwhile in WASHINGTON, yet another purge has taken place with the departure of JIM HASLETT and most, but not all of his coaches.

    The blodd-letting does not stop there of course. Players are next. My initial recommendation was a replacement of 37 players currently on the squad.

    Critical needs exist on both lines, at TE, back-up RB, both ILB and OLB, one CB, and both safeties plus back-ups.

    Needless to say, this cannot be accomplished successfully by ‘Houdini’ McCLOUGHAN in one off-season. Expect many soft spots for your team to target next season as well, as a couple vet FA’s and a host of picks and UFA’s flood onto the squad in hopes of stemming the tide at FEDEX field in 2015. Ain’t gonna’ happen in 2015. By 2017 something positive may begin to appear at REDSKINS Park. Until then, enjoy COWBOYA fans. Easy pickin’s up in D.C. for the foreseeable future.

    And if you’re wondering why I’m posting here rather than on ‘Redskins Gab’ it’s because comments are closed there as no new article has been posted since before Christmas.
