The Dallas Cowboys made a surprising roster move that will not help sway opinions that they haven’t done well in the off-season so far. On Friday the Cowboys signed former Oakland Raider running back Darren McFadden to their injured reserve squad.
“We see the potential in Darren McFadden and believe that he will be the type of player that will give us hope at the beginning of the year only to be disappointed when he gets hurt.” said Cowboys’ head coach Jason Garrett “We just figured we would be proactive and place Darren on the injured list to begin with.”
The Cowboys lost two time Pro Bowl running back DeMarco Murray on Thursday when he signed a five year contract with the Philadelphia Eagles for $42 million dollars.
Garrett continued “Everyone said that we ran DeMarco too hard.” (Murray carried the ball 392 times in 2014) “we aren’t going to make that same mistake with Darren McFadden.”
